Televison Throughout History
By: Cason Prue
Television in the 1940s
when they first came out TV's were more pricey so they were normally only found in the households of people with money. Eventually though the price of TV's would drop and they would be in nearly every house, bar, office, ect. The 40's were known as the "golden age" of television because they were creating new shows rapidly a few examples are The Goldbergs, Howdy Doody, and The Ed Sullivan Show
1960 the year of transition
Television was quickly becoming the mass medium in the 1960's. Radio use dropped down to only 2 hours, because TV us was going up. crowds at movie theaters went down because people no longer needed to leave the comfort of their home to watch a movie. shows of this time were the flintstones, the andy griffith show, the twilight zone, and bonanza.
Today TV is pretty much just pointless garbage mainly reality TV which is the farthest from real or revolve around hashtags or new technology. TVs are now flat rather than having a giant back to them, and theres normally a TV in every room. a few shows today are modern family, family guy, the honey boo boo, tosh.0.
