The texts I am referring to are
Horace Newcomb, ed. _Television: The Critical View_
Erik Barnouw _Tube of Plenty_
The first is a collection of essays on a wide range of TV-related topics,
the second is a good study of the evolution of televison.

As I am already teaching cinema studies, I know much more about film than tv, but am surprised to see that despite hundreds of books about television, there seems to be no textbook about television studies, or introduction to television studies. I can quote 30 books about violence in television, but I found none that can summarize the field of television studies. I would appreciate a few hints, and to enlarge the scope, I accept suggestions for books in English, French, or Spanish.
