Television entertainment in the US has changed over the years. It rules supreme, arguably, one of the greatest disseminators of entertainment, information, opinions, and entertainment in the world. More than just a parade of colorful figures in a brightly colored box, it’s deeply engrained in our daily life, how we think, what we think, and how we react to it all. People from all walks of life, cultures, races, education levels and backgrounds can all agree on one thing: television entertainment is relevant. It’s the way we learn, connect, socialize and prepare for work and play, break away from our troubles and stress and enjoy the entertainment we receive through television.
The modern television, with its increased production value, more cutting-edge technology and better production values are at the forefront of every aspect of our lives. From sports to movies to television shows to music videos, everything is constantly being produced or put together to keep up with the times. Everything has been commercialized; everything has been stereotyped and commercialized either intentionally or unintentionally. It’s a wonder that people can go on to other forms of television entertainment such as books or newspapers, but somehow the modern television still has a huge fan base and continues to be a worldwide sensation. In fact, many believe that television entertainment is the only form of communication that is completely free.
In the end, whether it’s comedy, drama, cartoons, reality TV, movies, music videos or television news, people are always looking for the next big thing or the next episode of something they’re all so familiar with. It’s almost a compulsion, watching television. People are addicted to entertainment and cable television offers some of the best entertainment out there today. Just remember, if you love television you don’t really have to pay for it, you can just turn off your brain and enjoy.
