Show Summary Details

Preview

This article takes a look at the stylistic and textual practices of television, as well as the industrial practices of contemporary conglomeration. It shows that the reflexive stylistic practices were not only markers of edgy programming, but also as lucrative mainstream mechanisms. These helped rationalize the industry and familiarize the viewers to the logic and possibilities of the new conglomerates.
