So What? Television Shows
The main thing that I have learned is that television shows evolve and so do viewers. Popular shows in the 1990s, like Friends and Seinfeld, which were about a close knitted group of clean friends, would never survive in televisions market today which feeds off negativity. Today’s viewers are drawn to more dirty and mean spirited comedies like Two and a Half men. In addition, television is also changing the amount of money it spends on itself. In past years, television could never keep up with the production quality of high intensity action thrillers. Now with shows like 24 and Lost, that gap is becoming smaller and smaller. As viewers evolve, television does to, and it is spending a lot more money to do so.
