Why You’re Addicted to TV

Why You’re Addicted to TV | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it
Newsweek talks to the creators of today’s most addictive shows about what they’re doing to make sure we just can’t stop.
Ken Morrison's insight:

This is a wonderful article about how television has changed since 2007. It is much bigger than technology.  Producers now make each show to be part of the big picture and to push you to want to watch the next show. In the past, producers's bosses insisted that each episode must be able to stand alone so that they could make money in the future through syndication. Those days are over.  There are so many great tid-bits of insights as well as big-picture understanding in this quality article about the current state of television and society.

 

It also talks about binge watching, a great potato chip analogy and the neuroscience of television addiction.
