For nearly two decades, Television: Critical Methods and Applications has served as the foremost guide to television studies. Designed for the television studies course in communication and media studies curricula, Television explains in depth how television programs and commercials are made and how they function as producers of meaning. Author Jeremy G. Butler shows the ways in which camera style, lighting, set design, editing, and sound combine to produce meanings that viewers take away from their television experience. He supplies students with a whole toolbox of implements to disassemble television and read between the lines, teaching them to incorporate critical thinking into their own television viewing. The fourth edition builds upon the pedagogy of previous editions to best accommodate current modes of understanding and teaching television.
Highlights of the fourth edition include:
With its distinctive approach to examining television, Television is appropriate for courses in television studies, media criticism, and general critical studies.

"This is, quite simply, the best book out there for teaching introductory TV courses. The text is well-conceived and engaging, and Butler does a superb job of illustrating the formal and aesthetic structures of television in a clear and readable manner."
--Tara McPherson, Associate Professor, School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California
"Written with clarity and wit, Television surveys a range of ways of analyzing a medium which young people, although they consume it voraciously, seldom scrutinize. It can help make students more sensitive and critical consumers of the major mass medium of our time."
--David Bordwell, Jacques Ledoux Professor of Film Studies, Department of Communication Arts, University of Wisconsin–Madison
"Television is a terrific book with wide student appeal. Butler explains critically sophisticated ideas in clear, accessible language, with concrete examples that bring those ideas to life. The book's substance, structure and 'user-friendly' design make it the best all-around book for teaching students how to think about television."
--Kathleen Rowe Karlyn, Professor, University of Oregon
