We’ve Come a Long Way from TV

Starting with only three television networks in the 60’s, TV gradually developed the exposure of social change in many television shows.

In Todd Leopold’s article, mentioning TV critic Eric Deggans, Deggans expresses, “Back then, there was a lot of TV that was created by producers who really underestimated the audience.” Also adding, “Even today’s widely popular sitcoms and dramas […] engage with real life in ways that were forbidden 50 years ago.”
