What Kind of Second Screen Viewer Are You?

When it comes to TV, one this is for certain: people want different things. This is one of the reasons why there are countless hours of programming that cater to a variety of tastes. Of course, despite the different types and subjects of the many TV shows out there, fundamentally, we all enjoy TV in similar ways. It’s no secret that all of the attention is no longer on the big screen in the living room. According to a recent study from Nielsen, 45 percent of Americans use their tablet while watching TV daily, and 26 percent simultaneously watch TV and use their tablet several times a day. Let’s not…

Introducing Misograms

TV Pictograms + Miso = Misogram! Recently, I came across Eurydyka Kata & Rafał Szczawiński’s 15 Iconic TV Shows to Guess.
