MMAA Television spans many decades now. From the first broadcasts with live shows to animation. TV is just awesome, there is just so many shows that it is hard to begin at the beginning. So we will skip around until I can bring back into a more organized fashion.
One great televison concept is the "It's all just a misunderstanding" shows like "I Love Lucy" , "Three's Compnay" and "Sienfeld".
Many of the earliest animation shows like "Popeye" , "Merrie Melodies" , "Looney Tunes" and Disney shorts pictures were seen at movies before the commercial development of television.

Mechanical Television was introduced in late 1920's - It was a system that relies on a scanning device, such as a rotating disk with holes or a rotating mirror, to scan the scene and generate video signal, and a similar mechanical device at the receiver to display the picture.
In the mid 1940’s - Electronic Television took over using cathode ray tubes.
In 1953 - Broadcast of color television.

The Dynamic of television has seriously changed. You can see it happening at even a faster rate than ever before. Now you just see many “old” actors doing “new” shows. Clearly the demographic is targeted towards older generations. In addition, “reality” shows have completely changed programming. They do not require “stars”, and the programming ideas are endless.
With so much competition, programming changes fast, if it does not get good ratings or make enough money, it’s gone. Up until some point in the mid 1990’s, we basically watched everything, because that’s all there was on TV, and most of the programing was targeted at older people.
