9780814731994: Satire TV: Politics and Comedy in the Post-Network Era
Críticas:

"This smart and savvy crew has noticed something creeping up on us, something with bite. Now we have to take satire TV seriously; it turns out to be the bearer of the democratic spirit for the post-broadcast age. In this field-shaping book, some of the brightest talents in TV studies show us how the marginal has become the model for a much-needed media make-over. See what happens when entertainment bares its teeth." John Hartley, author of Television Truths "It has been said that if you have to explain a joke, it's not funny. This wonderful collection proves that nothing could be farther from the truth. Satire TV takes the study of comedy in new directions, expanding beyond earlier work done on classical Hollywood cinema and the sitcom." Heather Hendershot, editor of NickelodeonNation "Satire TV: Politics and Comedy in the Post-Network Era is a collection of academic essays that attempt a sophisticated look at how TV comedy politicized itself in the 2000s...The essays in Satire TV make use of a variety of theoretical models, some derived from the likes of Bakhtin and Aristotle, to define satire and elucidate how shows like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, South Park, and others are able to operate as politically subversive entertainments in a medium like television, for which the blandest, the safest, and the most banal fare had always set the tone...Satire TV still contains much that is of interest to media scholars and non-academics alike."- Patrick Gallagher, PopMatters, 14th May 2009

Reseña del editor:

Satirical TV has become mandatory viewing for citizens wishing to make sense of the bizarre contemporary state of political life. Shifts in industry economics and audience tastes have re-made television comedy, once considered a wasteland of escapist humor, into what is arguably the most popular source of political critique. From fake news and pundit shows to animated sitcoms and mash-up videos, satire has become an important avenue for processing politics in informative and entertaining ways, and satire TV is now its own thriving, viable television genre.

Satire TV examines what happens when comedy becomes political, and politics become funny. A series of original essays focus on a range of programs, from The Daily Show to South Park, Da Ali G Show to The Colbert Report, The Boondocks to Saturday Night Live, Lil’ Bush to Chappelle’s Show, along with Internet D.I.Y. satire and essays on British and Canadian satire. They all offer insights into what today’s class of satire tells us about the current state of politics, of television, of citizenship, all the while suggesting what satire adds to the political realm that news and documentaries cannot.
