TV Is Here To Stay But It Has Changed And Here Are Some Ways It's Viewed

Television has changed within these past years..


Television has changed within these past years, audiences all over have learned to embrace change with Television. Not only with how the TV looks, but with how the programs strategize nowadays. However, there was a time that the time of Television was a bit easier. Nowadays you do have your mass amounts of channels and it is kind of hard to keep up with all of them 24/7, but we certainly try. The Leading In method has been used with television programs. Game of Clones premiers on MTV, it has well known MTV stars in the preview of the show, so it is sure to grab viewers attention and makes them want to watch more which would be a benefit of Leading In. Downfalls to this method would be viewers only watching just this show and not other attention-grabbing shows. Stunting also is another method that occurs.

It actually just recently occurred with The Bachelor and the National Championship Game. Both programs started at 8, even though the game was heavily advertised on ABC prior to the game. However, the game was on ESPN at the same time as the show. The benefit of this strategy is that there are going to be more viewers watching each program that evening due to both of their popularity. The downfall to it is if those who want to watch The Bachelor now have to record it if they want to watch the game (which is what I did) and you will have more viewers, in general, watching the game because it is very anticipated across the board with both Alabama and Clemson (go tigers!).

And last the last method is Repetition, this has occurred with the movie, The Proposal. This movie will be shown on TV tomorrow at 7 and 10 pm, along with Thursday at 2, 5, and 11 am. So the benefit with this is that if you want to watch it, you have plenty of chances to do so. The downfall would be is that those other time slots could have been filled with other movies similar to the Proposal. I do think that most of these methods have been used on other channels with similar shows/movies. There will always be new shows premiering on TV, but it is up to the show's creators to understand the audience atmosphere and trends. So the audience flow is truly up in the air each week.

5 Reasons You Need To Forking Listen To Me And Watch 'The Good Place' Or You'll End Up In The Bad Place

It has everything you want in a show: great plot, hilarious dialogue and existential philosophy. What more do you need?


"Friends" and "How I Met Your Mother" are held up as comedy gold by our generation. They have a great setting, plots that get the main characters into just the right amount of trouble and a good lesson that ties the episode in a nice little bow. But "The Good Place," produced by NBC, is something completely different from the 90s sitcom formula. Main characters Eleanor and Chidi face incredibly unique conflicts and with the fantastic characterization of each of the main characters, it's hard to stop binging the entire series. But why "The Good Place"? Here are five reasons you should start binging it on Netflix right now.

1. The Concept

Very rarely does America see a comedic show about death, but this show is the outlier. We find out in the first minutes of the pilot that Eleanor Shellstrop, played by Kristen Bell, is dead. She wakes up and is briefed by the architect of her new neighborhood named Michael, played by Ted Danson. Eleanor lives her first few hours in her new heaven and soon realizes that she is in fact not supposed to be in a Good Place. Chaos ensues during the remainder of the season as she meets her fellow neighbors and finds out the hard way that her actions in this heaven-like reality have some major consequences.

2. The Jokes

There's no laugh track to this show, which allows jokes to be more nuanced and witty. One of the running jokes throughout the series is members of Michael's neighborhood can't swear, so profanity is replaced with words like "fork," "ash hole" and "shirt-balls." Not only is it funny, but it's also a clever way to get around the no-profanity rule of public broadcasting.

3. The Philosophical Theories

You may be asking: How is this a reason to watch the show? But I promise it's one of the best parts of the entire series. Chidi, who was a moral philosophy professor when he was alive, attempts to teach Eleanor how to be a better person. Eleanor's lack of interest for the subject is obvious, but Chidi's rants about what's right and what's wrong, makes you really think about how you make decisions.

4. Two Words: Jameela Jamil

Jamil, who plays Tahani on the show, has been in headlines recently for her outspoken posts on social media. She talks about everything concerning women's issues. Her most recent run-in with celebrity drama was when she fought back against a post talking about the weights of the Kardashian sisters. She posted on her Instagram story, saying she weighed in friendship, her great job and more. She's a big fighter for equality and women's rights, and she's hilarious on and off the set.

5. And lastly, the episodes are only half an hour!

It's super easy to binge this show. With storylines that will hook you in and 20-25 minute episodes, you could finish the series in one day if you tried hard enough.

Grab a friend or two, make some delicious food and get watching! You won't regret picking this amazing show and cast to spend a few hours with.
