In reference to television distribution..as far as what I know, the journals, Electronic Media, and Broadcasting are excelllent sources for up to date information and research. You have quite a few options with independently produced programming, such as getting local stations to air the show, or going to the cable networks, or seeking syndication, or even the tv networks themselves!!! I hear though that it is easier to approach cable or independent stations. Usually shows are projected in reference to Neilsen ratings.
