I
n the
nutshell (n)
, in my opinion, the
cardinal (adj.)
rule for the
resilient (adj.)
return of television in these days is to
amplify (v)
the programmes’ quality. Being a
doom-monger (n)
, I would say it is
ineluctable (adj.)
that people could choose to devote more time on other entertainments, since there are
immense (n)
amount of choices nowadays. As a result, I believe only by producing high quality programme, audience won’t become
jaded (adj.)
thus switch to other entertainments. Personally, I would prefer programmes that enhancing public’s awareness on social issues, which could be programmes promoting a
synced (v)
society that embraces different cultures.
Summery: To summarize, the article discusses in what way television would be influenced under the upraising of the internet. For some doom-mongers, they suggest the scheduled linear television would soon be replaced by other online entertainments. However, our author claims otherwise. Supporting by statistics and the case study of linear television and social networks, he points out that television would remain as the “super medium”, only the way of people watching it varies. Hence, rather then making heaven and earth changes on television’s content and character, producers should think of subtle corrections to keep up with the new trend.
