During the ’50s, television changed American lifestyle with the introduction of color. By the late ’70s, a majority of households owned one TV set. Today, the number of homes with more than one television exceeds 115 million. With technology at its innovative peek, TV remains a primary medium for receiving information. It still reaches the masses like never before. These are the times when networks broadcast court trials without interruption, when coverage of protests are played across hundreds of channels, and when people live tweet their reactions to what they see from their couches. In some ways television content has evolved—ABC’s Scandal has white women wanting to be a character modeled after an African American woman. In some ways it hasn’t—networks’ continuous lack of diversity has content creators turning to the web to tell their stories. At times, TV oversaturates what we consume. Still, gathering around the tube remains one of America’s favorite pastimes. This is our TV issue.
