The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Aaron Dobbs:  "The foundation of this "Third Golden Age of Television" is often credited to "The Sopranos," "The Wire," "The Shield" and "Mad Men," but arguably as influential was the 2004 version of "Battlestar Galactica," reimagined by Ronald Moore and Dave Eick, which aired on Sci-Fi (as it was then called)."

Six lessons The Wall Street Journal learned from its experiment in reality TV | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Adrienne LaFrance:  'Donald Trump may be a Wall Street Journal reader, but the Journal is not a brand that immediately evokes the style of Trump’s long-running reality show The Apprentice. And yet the Journal is experimenting with its own interpretation of the genre, having just completed a 20-week first-season run of its Startup of the Year online show — a contest that the Journal calls an “interactive crash-course in entrepreneurship.”'

Quote: "According to Nielson, approximately 5% of American households have abandoned their television sets, using computers, smartphones and tablets to consume TV and video content rather than watching ‘traditional TV’". Second screen increased engagement is becoming very important to those who are in the business of television. It’s now very easy for viewers to filter out traditional TV advertising, so Social TV offers valuable alternative commercial models for broadcasters and content providers" Unquote

TV is still very powerfull. We know that - 2nd screen is rising -  and in the EU we are - mine opinion- miles behind look at zeebox for instance.

Is internet bad for tv? This explains the situation in the US. Does someone knows if it's the same in Europe? My gut feeling tells me that here in the Netherlands TV still has a big chunk of the market. People use tablets and other possibilties as second screen. Futher I have the feeling TV is used as it always is used and at know, this moment in time, watching TV is almost the same as it was a few years ago except for the second screen. Who can tell?

The way we watch TV is changing - we no longer gather in groups to watch our favorite shows, we watch by ourselves, and we do it in large chunks.  TV has gone from being a bonding activity to a solitary indulgence, and the negative conotation that used to come withn that is going away.

My favorate quote: "When Dickens was writing his novels, and they were serialized once a month, he read all the letters that came in. His novels were actually a real dialogue with his audience. He was writing to entertain them, and he got paid by the word, and he wanted them to be pleased. But he also wanted to make sure that they got the story he was trying to tell."
