A survey of the present state of television theory by reading major authors and discussing key topics in the field of television criticism. Issues concerning video language, programming flow, "live" transmission, television genres, audience participation, interactivity, etc. will be examined in order to understand what makes television different from other forms of mass media. Particular attention will be given to the role that television has in transforming the notion of visuality in this century. It will be argued that, historically, television represents the transition between spectatorship and hypertext, between analogical narrative and digital interactivity.
