Absolutely!

No TV taboo here.  In fact, your humble SCREEN-L owner/coordinator/moderator
welcomes TV studies topics because that's the area he mostly works in himself.
 
(Man, where did that schizophrenic third person mode come from?  I think
I may have been owning/coordinating/moderating a bit toooo long.)
 
It's the old "range of topics" issue:  SCREEN-L's topics (within the
general heading of film/TV studies) are determined by its membership.
If you'd like to see something discussed, set your fingers a-typing and
fire up a thread (if you'll excuse my mixed metaphor...).
