Overview

Time on TV examines the massive aesthetic and structural changes happening across today's television programs. Time travel, flash forwards, fake memories: Paul Booth's analysis reveals the theory and practices that are changing television and online media as we know them. His engaging examination of the mashup of television and social media uncovers a temporal complexity at the heart of our own lives. The characteristically enigmatic television narrative becomes emblematic of a very human interaction with social and digital media. A perfect book for twenty-first century television studies, media studies, or anyone who wants to know why there's so much time travel on television, Time on TV answers questions you didn't even know you had about today's television, digital technology, and our daily lives.

Reviews

It's about time we got a book about television temporality, and Paul Booth does a wonderful job delivering it. A great read that takes a refreshingly innovative approach to television analysis. (Jonathan Gray, Author of 'Television Entertainment '; Co-author of 'Television Studies') 'Time on TV' is a preemptive sequel to my own book on Complex TV, even before that book was published. But through Booth's analysis of temporality, memory, and networking, this chronology seems somehow possible and even appropriate! Regardless of what sort of time travel he may have used to write it, this book connects television aesthetics with shifts in digital media and participatory culture through compelling analyses that should resonate across multiple timeframes. (Jason Mittell, Middlebury College, Author of 'Television and American Culture')
