Any suggestions for textbooks for introductory TV courses.
I teach acourse on TV as an English course to first and
second year junior college students who, most likely, will never
take another course on media again. I've seen some good books
on TV comedy such as Marcs', Hamamoto's and Taylor's, but I need
something that covers the field. There are some good British
books, but the local examples would be lost for the most part
on Canadian students. We get every US network, so students
here are very familiar with US TV programs, in fact, more so
that with Canadian shows.
