What kinds of foreign television programs are broadcast in China? What types of cultural differences exist in the minds of Chinese television viewers? To what extent can they perceive and accept these differences? The author developed a three-stage empirical approach to examine these questions in five sample cities in China. First, the television schedules of 37 television channels were analyzed in order to determine the type, cultural modification, and export country of foreign programs. Second, based on 36 audience interviews 42 cultural dimensions were explored and summarized in a catalogue. Third, a survey was conducted among 450 viewers, which examined their perception and acceptance of cultural difference. Five viewer types were developed through cluster analysis. The impact of influential factors was examined.
The political content of The Simpsons, the effects of that content on viewers, and the relationship between humor and public opinion have long been sources of curiosity. When America's favorite animated family first aired, conservative Republicans criticized The Simpsons as a corrupting influence, which caused some people to believe the show favors the political left. Scholars, critics, and fans have argued over the partisan content of the show and its effects on viewers for years with scant empirical data to guide the debate. This book speaks to this lack of evidence by addressing systematically the questions of partisan bias, the effects of the show on viewers, and how such effects compare to the effects of traditional situation comedy programming. Utilizing a content analysis, an experimental design, and a secondary analysis of national survey data in the United States, this book sheds light on the politics of The Simpsons and the role of humor in a democratic society in a way that should be especially useful to any fan of the Springfield universe.

A view into the book you can find under "http://verlag.sandstein.de/reader/98-416_AgencyOfDisplay"The display of artefacts always implies an external mediation that influences, and often codifies, the reception of the exhibits. Objects are manipulated, restored, appropriated, staged, in short displayed, through various representational strategies that include pedestals, labels, and showcases. These elements, that we could define as parerga, are often ignored because of their utilitarian function. Yet, they play an important role in the history of the artefacts and define the setting in which the objects can exert their agency. They not only shape their meaning, but also determine the effect that these artefacts have on their viewers. Framing devices create the conditions for interactions between the individual and the object to take place. This publication aims to explore the relation between artefacts and viewers as they are manifested in framing devices, and to develop a new theoretical framework for thinking about the power of objects on display.
Reality-based shows are gradually taking over global television programming. The popularity of these shows is such that television stations and networks find themselves scrambling to place more reality programmes on air to keep up with audience demands. The driving force of reality programming lies in the fact that, it places the audience member on the opposite side of the entertainment arena, providing all viewers with the possibility of becoming potential entertainers. The focus of this study therefore, was to analyse reality television programmes, finding out the contents of the programmes and identifying their thematic direction, as well as assessing the perception of University Students towards reality television programmes.
Big Brother, the first and most successful Reality TV show all over the world, failed in France. Indeed, after one hugely successful season, the three following shows weakened to renew such a performance. The reasons for those failures are to be found among the choice of the casting, the ethical regulations and the very content of the show. After having conducted two focus groups, it has become very clear that the classical concept of Big Brother is outdated and doesn t answer anymore to the French viewers expectations. Hence, it appears to be needless to air another season of Big Brother in France with only repeating what has been done before. My main finding is that, in order to be reintroduced,the new concept should be strong enough to overcome the ethical regulations, and, above all, establish an emotional relationship between the show and the viewers. The more involved the viewers are, the better the show would be and the more audience (and cash) it would generate. The example of M6, a French private TV channel, is given: a new concept of Big Brother would be focused around TV Series, one of the pillars of the channel, using emotional techniques.
Many individuals anecdotally express concern about whether watching too many soap operas is somehow bad for viewers. Does watching soaps cause viewers to have a distorted set of beliefs about and expectations toward relationships in their everyday lives? This book contains a monograph of the author s doctoral dissertation, in which he explores the social cognition and relationship learning that occurs from soap operas. Do soap opera viewers hold different sets of beliefs about sex in relationships? About conflict? About romance? About break-up? In the first study, Dr. Hoekstra tests the existence of such beliefs in the context of both relationships in general and in the context of a viewer s actual current relationship. In the second study, Dr. Hoekstra examines whether soap viewers have a different capacity for recognizing, remembering, and constructing hypothetical relationship plots with typical soap-opera sorts of themes.
