Dealing with network executives is like being nibbled to death by ducks.

Eric Sevareid

Television has proved that people will look at anything rather than each other.

Ann Landers

TV is chewing gum for the eyes.

Frank Lloyd Wright

Television has raised writing to a new low.

Samuel Goldwyn

Television was supposed to be a national park. Instead it has become a money machine. It's a commodity now, just like pork bellies.

Fred Friendly

Television has brought back murder into the home - where it belongs.

Alfred Hitchcock

It may be that without a vision men shall die. It is no less true that, without hard practical sense, they shall also die. Without Jefferson the new nation might have lost its soul. Without Hamilton it would assuredly have been killed in body.

James Truslow Adams

Don't you wish there was a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness,' but it doesn't work.


We can put television in its proper light by supposing that Gutenberg's great invention had been directed at printing only comic books.

Robert M. Hutchins

Television [is] a high-impact medium. It does some things no other force can do-transmitting electronic pictures through the air. Still, as an explored, comprehensive medium, it is not a substitute for print.

Walter Cronkite

Television is an instrument which can paralyze this country.

Gen William C. Westmoreland

I think that parents only get so offended by television because they rely on it as a babysitter and the sole educator of their kids.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone

When television is good, nothing is better. When it's bad, nothing is worse.

Newton N. Minow

Imagine what it would be like if TV actually were good. It would be the end of everything we know.

Marvin Minsky

The first thing a television viewer realizes when watching a golf tournament is how the sport tends to make one inclined to whisper and avoid sudden movements, such as walking to the refrigerator [during] a possible birdie putt.

Peter Alfano

Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it.

Alfred Hitchcock

Television is a golden goose that lays scrambled eggs; and it is futile and probably fatal to beat it for not laying caviar. Anyway, more people like scrambled eggs than caviar.

Lee Loevinger

Television news is like a lightning flash. It makes a loud noise, lights up everything around it, leaves everything else in darkness and then is suddenly gone.

Hodding Carter

TV is bigger than any story it reports. It's the greatest teaching tool since the printing press.

Fred Friendly

Television is a weapon of mass distractrion.

Larry Gelbart

You know, I think that if parents would spend less time worrying about what their kids watch on TV and more time worrying about what's going on in their kids' lives, this world would be a much better place.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone

One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us.

Kurt Vonnegut

A narrow vision is divisive, a broad vision expansive. But a divine vision is all-inclusive.

H. H. Swami Tejomayananda

Seeing a murder on television... can help work off one's antagonisms. And if you haven't any antagonisms, the commercials will give you some.

Alfred Hitchcock

If it weren't for Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of television, we'd still be eating frozen radio dinners.

Johnny Carson

Thanks to TV and for the convenience of TV, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative.

Kurt Vonnegut

We are drawn to our television sets each April the way we are drawn to the scene of an accident.

Vincent Canby

Commercials on television are similar to sex and taxes; the more talk there is about them, the less likely they are to be curbed.

Jack Gould

I can think of nothing more boring for the American people than to have to sit in their living rooms for a whole half hour looking at my face on their television screens.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

The journalistic vision sharpens to the point of maximum impact every event, every individual and social configuration; but the honing is uniform.

George Steiner

All television ever did was shrink the demand for ordinary movies. The demand for extraordinary movies increased. If any one thing is wrong with the movie industry today, it is the unrelenting effort to astonish.

Clive James

Television is simply automated daydreaming.

Lee Loevinger

There is something supremely reassuring about television; the worst is always yet to come.

Jack Gould

The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle.

Stanley Kubrick

Television enables you to be entertained in your home by people you wouldn't have in your home.

David Frost

The great thing about television is that if something important happens anywhere in the world, day or night, you can always change the channel.

From "Taxi"

I don't watch television, I think it destroys the art of talking about oneself.

Stephen Fry

Television is a new medium. It's called a medium because nothing is well-done.

Fred Allen

Hell begins on the day when God grants us a clear vision of all that we might have achieved, of all the gifts which we have wasted, of all that we might have done which we did not do.

Gian Carlo Menotti

A modern revolutionary group heads for the television station.

Abbie Hoffman

All television is children's television.

Richard P. Adler

Give us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for- because unless we stand for something we shall fall for anything.

Peter Marshall

The one function TV news performs very well is that when there is no news we give it to you with the same emphasis as if there were.

David Brinkley

Every time you think television has hit its lowest ebb, a new program comes along to make you wonder where you thought the ebb was.

Art Buchwald

Nothing is really real unless it happens on television.

Daniel J. Boorstin

Television has spread the habit of instant reaction and stimulated the hope of instant results.

Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

It is difficult to produce a television documentary that is both incisive and probing when every twelve minutes one is interrupted by twelve dancing rabbits singing about toilet paper.

Rod Serling

Newspapers, television networks, and magazines have sometimes been outrageously abusive, untruthful, arrogant, and hypocritical. But it hardly follows that elimination of a strong and independent press is the way to eliminate abusiveness . . .

Potter Stewart

My philosophy, like color television, is all there in black and white.

Monty Python

Television is a corporate vulgarity.

John Leonard

Television is not vulgar because people are vulgar; it is vulgar because people are similar in their prurient interests and sharply differentiated in their civilized concerns.

George Gilder

The most important thing about a TV set is to get it back against something and not out in the middle of a room where it's like a somber fellow making electronic judgments on you.

Bruce Jay Friedman

The television industry doesn't like to see the compexity of the world. It prefers simple reporting, with simple ideas: this is white, that's black; this is good, that's bad.

Krzysztof Kieslowski

Situation comedy on television has thrived for years on "canned" laughter grafted by gaglines by technicians using records of guffawing audiences that have been dead for years.

Russell Baker

People are more inclined to be drawn in if their leader has a compelling vision. Great leaders help people get in touch with their own aspirations and then will help them forge those aspirations into a personal vision.

John Kotter

We love television because television brings us a world in which television does not exist.

Barbara Ehrenreich

If there's anything unsettling to the stomach, it's watching actors on television talk about their personal lives.

Marlon Brando

He who is created by television can be destroyed by television.

Theodore H. White

MTV is the lava lamp of the 1980's.

Doug Ferrari

A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.

Rosabeth Moss Kanter

If vaudeville had died, television was the box they put it in.

Larry Gelbart

The day I need a television puppet or clown to tell my children what's right and what's wrong, I'll bow out as a mother.

Elinor Smith

Seeing through is rarely seeing into.

Elizabeth Bibesco

I love vegging out in front of the TV, eating pizza!

Emma Bunton

If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.

John Lennon

Television and film demand that people at all levels have brass balls or brass ovaries. Unfortunately, we live in the reign of the eunuch.

Rita Mae Brown

Television! Teacher, mother, secret lover.

Matt Groening

Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.

Robert Bresson

Mother is the dead heart of the family, spending father's earnings on consumer goods to enhance the environment in which he eats, sleeps, and watches television.

Germaine Greer

Television is now so desperately hungry for material that they're scraping the top of the barrel.

Gore Vidal

What we were intrigued by ... was the amount of coverage, the amount of debate, the amount of back and forth, whether this was good or bad, and ultimately the results of increased television ratings, increased attendance ...

Ty Votaw

They have the best track record and they ensured us of the broadest distribution of television viewers.

Rob Stutzman

Women watch more television than men in general, ... So it kind of makes sense to come up with programming that attracts the viewers most likely to be watching.

Shari Anne Brill

The majors now have sort of semi-independent companies allied with them, making lower-budget films. They're competing with us. And television is a huge target for young people. So we don't quite have the monopoly on young writers, directors, producers and actors that we formerly did.

Roger Corman

Modern politics today requires a mastery of television. I've never really warmed up to television and, in fairness to television, it's never warmed up to me.

Walter F. Mondale

Our point is not that television should avoid the topic of sex. Our point is that we need to be aware of the kind of messages about sex that we are sending our kids.

Victoria Rideout

Because our audience is experiencing content in so many places these days, it's important not just to be a television company. One hopes the brand is powerful enough that your content is recognizable everywhere.

Brian Graden

What is your fondest memory of a holiday? We don't want the kids just eating and watching television.

Gayle Tolchin

We are extremely proud of the work we've done for the Lottery over the past three years. Through groundbreaking creative television, radio, print, out-of-home and interactive work, we've helped the Lottery achieve spectacular results in sales and general awareness.

Mike Sheehan

Our job is to put on the best possible service and make it available through cable to fans. We don't want to leverage fans into doing our work for us. The flip side to the pawn argument ... [is] if it wasn't for ESPNU, this game wouldn't be on television.

Burke Magnus

Our release schedule for the balance of this year holds great promise, and our home video and television distribution operations continue to generate stronger than expected revenue and cash flow.

Alex Yemenidjian

The production of the television feature by the renowned travel journalist was a solid endorsement of Jamaica's tourist industry and an affirmation of the island as a premier destination.

Paul Pennicook

I'll say one thing for television. It has taken children and educated them far beyond anything I was ever involved with as a child.

Bill Bixby

We've got guys playing from all over the country playing here, East Coast, West Coast; plus you are on national television. It's a way to show the world you can play.

John Neal

What's really important in life? Sitting on a beach? Looking at television eight hours a day? I think we have to appreciate that we're alive for only a limited period of time, and we'll spend most of our lives working. That being the case, I beli.

Victor Kiam

A time will come when this ... whole discussion is entirely academic, because our technology and our shelf-space capabilities will be rising at roughly the same rate, in my opinion, as high-definition television begins to arrive throughout our society.

Leo Hindery

Of course we were robbed. There was a clear penalty, you can see the (television) pictures. The referee has to give as it's the same rule for everybody whether it's at home or away. But he did not give it and we were eliminated.

Diomansy Kamara

Virtual Reality is like mainlining television.

William Gibson

Watching on television, after a while, gets to ya, and you have to either shut the TV off or go do something about it.

Bill Allen

He just wants to fine-tune it before he sticks his head out ? makes his return to television.

Paul Shefrin

When we're covering a big story, we can put them on television. And we can be on their radio station.

Dianne Doctor

Almost 50 percent of the work actors used to do for television is gone. Broadcast stations are all about money -- with reality shows they don't have to pay actors, or writers, and no sets are needed.

Cari Shayne

We strongly encourage (theater owners) to keep the ads limited in duration and make them entertaining in their own right. We hope there will be a migration toward fewer ads that don't replicate what's on television, because people can't stand that.

John Fithian

I can't tell you how many people have called me crying. The feeling of helplessness of the people you're seeing on television translates into this desperate need to help. A lot of people are feeling like, 'These are Americans. These are my people.' They really want to do something concrete to make people's lives better.

Medea Benjamin

Gretchen actually used to work at a television station.

Aaron Harberts

I grew up in the theatre. It's where I got my start. Writing a television drama with theatrical dialogue about the theatre is beyond perfection.

Aaron Sorkin

Restaurants are moving in the direction that consumer packaged goods manufacturers and retailers took some years ago. Continuous measurement and evaluation of marketing channels such as television, radio, internet and print and in-store promotions is either in practice or under consideration at a number of leading restaurant chains.

Joseph Flowers

Recent reports suggest that funds may have been spent more on ground wars than on television advertising campaigns. It will be interesting to see whether this strategy spills over to judicial elections this year or whether spending on airtime continues its upward spiral.

Deborah Goldberg

If you look at the images that you see on television, those images are usually of poverty. Africa is way beyond that.

Kwevi Quaye

There is a flood of television series hitting the market.

Scott Hettrick

We need substantial legitimate work on television, ... and we don't need to lose shows like that -- we need to get more of them.

Vincent D'onofrio

Right now, when you look around and listen to radio and watch television, hip-hop is taking over. Clothes, underwear, there is so much going on. Hip-hop is taking over.

Dj Paul

In film and television we are oftentimes so pampered that the truths are withheld.

Charles Keating

This merger would create a monopoly in those areas where cable television is not available, thereby eliminating the only competitive choice for millions of households.

Charles A. James

Late night television is ready for someone like me... standards have gone to an all-time low.

Howard Stern

To be honest, we don't have the financial resources. We don't have any television channels.

Salih Mutlaq

I think part of the reason why you've never seen a show set at a major international airport on television before is because it's a really complicated proposition. We'll be shooting at a number of different locations to create a composite of what ultimately is LAX.

Anthony Russo

If we can combine those bills [IP, telephone, television] into a single bill, it would save us money.

Dan Palmer

With about 85 television channels [carrying advertising], how do you break out of the clutter? Clients have lost faith [in] the creative abilities of advertising agencies, and just want a famous face to plug their products.

Anirban Das

Television makes so much at its worst that it can't afford to do its best.

Fred Friendly

We might be doing pictures for the blind, ... But I suspect not. I think this is a turning point for sports television.

David Hill

Earnings of our conventional TV businesses were negatively impacted in the quarter by the Olympic Winter Games, which distorted normal ratings and advertising revenues in all television markets over a two-week period in February.

Leonard Asper

We were surprised that bankers and accountants came up so high. I really expected lawyers, maybe television producers and radio announcers (to rank high). In my experiences, they're pretty bad.

Charles Gerba

To say there's no more of a heinous crime, you must not be reading the newspapers or watching television because there are all kinds of stories out there of little girls getting taken and killed. I can think of thousands of crimes that are more heinous.

Jeff Kline

Paik's work would have a profound and sustained impact on the media culture of the late 20th century; his remarkable career witnessed and influenced the redefinition of broadcast television and transformation of video into an artist's medium.

John Hanhardt

Once the power companies had done their job, they gave us the OK to go in, and we were able to go in an do our job. We are hoping to restore all cable within the next week, and this includes Internet service as well. If you have cable (television), you should have Internet service as well. If you don't, please call us.

Patricia Collins

These important deals will allow us to bring concerts that would otherwise be very difficult -- or impossible -- to find on broadcast television to a wide audience.

Dan Marks

Nobody who is interested in television and interested in challenges could say 'no' (to BBC One) because it is a great job.

Peter Fincham

Original programming is the riskiest thing you do in television, ... The failure rate is so high.

Steve Koonin

When television producers say it is the parents' obligation to keep children away from the tube, they reach the self satire point of warning that their own product is unsuitable for consumption.

Gregg Easterbrook

We saw this type of event on television several years ago. We thought it would be something we'd like to try.

Clay Peterson

[Television] has created a nation of news junkies who tune in every night to get their fix on the world.

Robert Macneil

Some of the now older kids remember performing at the Convention Center in New Orleans, when they were the youngest ones on the trip. They've seen the recent television pictures of the refugees holed up at the Center, and the Aquarium (which they visited) that was destroyed by the hurricane. It's brought it all home for them and they've talked about it at some of our rehearsals.

Ginny Bishop

I've long been a fan of Lifetime Television and deeply respect the successes they've enjoyed as the destination for women, ... Their interesting and engaging mix of movies and series is an outstanding foundation upon which to build, and I'm looking forward to this great opportunity to bring a new generation of hits to the network.

Greg Daniels

Since India is the largest television market for international cricket, heavy promotion of the CWC there is of great importance to the sponsors, and we are keen to share the excitement of the build-up to the event with the millions of fans in that country.

Marvia Roach

C-SPAN2 has a new Book TV show that features interviews with nonfiction authors, so it has turned a full-size bus into a fully contained television studio. They take it to big book events to let people know about their new show, and we're now one of the largest book sales in the Southeast, if not the nation.

Cathy Clark

I think the maximum that you can be on national television is six, so with four already scheduled we potentially could have two more that could be moved. I would expect that we will have at least one moved.

Art Rooney

The proliferation of icons really happened about the time of television in the '50s. They're an important part of pop culture and really reflect our social and cultural history.

Ileen Gallagher

Internet mailing lists are like Fox television shows. They have really cool previews, and they get you all excited about them, but they just don't live up to their promises.

John Dobbin

Why not? ... We see it happen with television ? stars just emerge out of nowhere and stay there. It would be terrific for terrestrial radio to find a replacement for Howard that works.

Scott Mckenzie

I think the problem is a lack of television dates, especially towards the end of the year. It is not a small fight to be put together for $50,000 to $60,000. You can't put it on a smaller television network.

Carl Moretti

The whole state of Sunday night television was much different than it is today.

Dave Baldwin

He grabbed that rail, ... He just hadn't realized that we had switched on the electricity yet, and that's what we're going to do with this television ad as well.

Joe Andrew

With the continued expansion of the group PBL is now a company with interests in a diverse range of businesses and there is no one better qualified in Australian television than Sam Chisholm -- I am delighted he has agreed to oversee the continued development of our television interests in a constantly changing medium.

James Packer

I hate television. I hate it as much as I hate peanuts. But I can't stop eating peanuts.

Orson Welles

I have this phobia: I don't like mirrors. And I don't watch myself on television. If anything comes on, I make them shut it off, or I leave the room.

Pamela Anderson

Each girl will be given a therapy ball to take home and use for activities which might be to sit and bounce as they watch their favorite television show.

Debby O'neill

Our generation is the first to have grown up with TV. I'm one of the first kids that they watched grow up on television.

Jerry Mathers

Together, our companies only have about 17 percent of the pay television market. Just the Comcast-AT&T [business] alone will have something well north of that, ... Just that company, in the cable industry, has about 78 percent, according to the FCC report in January. So we're a very small fish in a very big pond.

Charlie Ergen

We're all uncertain. There's no question the audience has been willing to laugh. It just has been hard on television the last five years.

Jeff Zucker

Bob Hope was not a television pioneer. He didn't learn his lines. If you don't learn your lines, I don't take you seriously. We never had a (cue) card.

Carl Reiner

We've received well over 7,000 complaints related to pricing and the majority of those have been about gasoline compliance. We provided an 800 number that's been on radio and television. And we're following up complaints with investigators who are all over the state.

Jacob Ray

I like to have fun with them. I like to toy with them a little bit. we're making television, after all. Right?

Phil Keoghan

It's vital for teens to see gay characters on television, ... When a gay teen in Iowa sees Jack on 'Dawson's Creek' portrayed as loved, talented and accepted, it sends a strong message that he can be those things, as well.

Scott Seomin

[Disaster coverage] feeds a demographic of grief junkies, who are tapping away at the remote control like a rat tapping for crack pellets, ... Not only does misery love company, it also makes for compelling television.

Matthew Felling

If you're going to be on television, you're going to have to clean up your act.

Linda Baker

I feel like I'm watching a movie. I watch the news and the television, and I think it's going to hit me sometime soon.

Michelle Williams

Microsoft is a very good software company. They are not a distribution company or a content-creation company. NBC is better at television.

Adi Kishore

I don't like to watch golf on television because I can't stand people who whisper.

David Brenner

That touched everyone. You had no idea looking at television or reading the newspapers how widespread the devastation was. It was a real wake-up call for all of us.

Steve Sarro

People are going to be amazed at the power of the film and television inventory Johnny is putting together. We plan on something very big about private space, ... but I can't talk about it yet. But today, we're focusing on the website.

Bill Mccoy

It is clear that Premiere as a television group is harmed. We are not fighting with the same weaponry.

Georg Kofler

When (the television show) 'Three Wishes' came to town, Heather's family said their wish was to have a handicap-accessible van. Sadly, that didn't happen.

Kelsey Bauerly

The problem for state television is that it hasn't been able to find a place, and nor can it, between the commercial imperatives and being a public service broadcaster. It remains very much driven by commercial imperatives.

Bob Gregory

There was something about the music industry that I found fascinating, and especially at this time, when it seems to be in such flux. I kind of feel like we lucked into a world that hasn't been dealt with that much on television.

Michael Rauch

The Culver-Judge campaign is excited to go to the voters with a positive, optimistic television campaign.

Patrick Dillon

Television is a medium because anything well done is rare.

Fred Allen

Scientific American tries to present information that has relevance to society and political policy. However, there's the problem of science literacy, since audiences are increasingly used to seeing things on television carved into little bits for them.

John Rennie

We have seen spikes in giving based off of those things (television telethons for Katrina families).

Melissa Temme

This is more than a talent show. We're watching dreams come true. Of course, dreams can turn into nightmares, especially when they wind up on national television.

Nigel Lythgoe

Bravo's extensive gay-themed television programming combined with our editorial product and established gay and lesbian audience, creates a unique Internet video advertising opportunity for national advertisers.

Mark Elderkin

This week represents a new look, a new sound and a new brand I guess for CBC television and radio right across the country.

Gloria Macarenko

The fact is that daytime television is less valued than nighttime, and it's partly because of the product that we produce. We do a one-hour show in 12 hours. Nighttime produces a one-hour show in seven to nine days.

Deidre Hall

It's a very bad time for genuinely creative people to do television or anything now. There isn't a huge audience anymore to get the big budget which you need to make good drama unless you get sponsorship or unless you get teen stars to be in them. That sort of ties in with marketing and Coca-Cola and all that stuff.

Robbie Coltrane

A voluntary UL standard requires that the units remain upright when placed on a ten-degree angle and a 70-pound weight is placed on top of it to simulate a television.

Don Mays

It's not a philosophy. It's religion. There are no television ads for our product during those hours. And since this was a marketing thing, they only wanted to show it during the Sunday races.

Ruth Garren

He made a mistake going on television, giving his opinions about the investigation. ... He shouldn't have been expressing those opinions, ... Reliable Sources.

Leonard Downie

We look like television in print.

Allen Neuharth

If we?re talking about seeding so five does not play six, then I?m for that. But if you?re talking about five must host the game, then I don?t go for that. Television can give great exposure or exposes you. We need to keep going to great sites and go to places where the best atmosphere can be portrayed.

Doug Fullerton

You wake up thinking you might hear about it in the news. Sometimes, I'll go on the Internet or watch television. If I see it, then I'll know.

Michael Olowokandi

The new movie I'm working on right now is very autobiographical. It's about a television actor who drinks too much and gets blackballed from the industry, and then he decides to break back in by directing his own movie.

Andy Dick

The reason I'm in this play and taking a tour and the box office is doing very well is that I'm well-known, and that's thanks to television.

Jean Stapleton

The cost of producing both the live show in Times Square and the television broadcast was prohibitive this year. We look forward to bringing BOB back to television next year.

Jed Bernstein

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

Groucho Marx

(Advertisers) judge very harshly the kind of content they're advertising on. On television and radio, there are standards.

Tom Freston

It's obviously a television studio. But it's also a live-music venue. We restored it with an ear and an eye to the past, and we respected the history.

Brad Schwartz

I think they've been unfairly treated, ... You don't need to be in the Superdome, you look at the television and you can see it.

John Street

I have a great deal of confidence in the technology side of television.

Marc Doyle

(On television) they were only showing one place, and that's because New Orleans was the most devastated. We didn't know about our house until a neighbor told us.

Megan Edwards

Let's just say the depictions on television and photographic images do not show the reality. I was standing in deep silt and someone told me I was standing where a family's house used to be.

Amos P. Cameron

A good district attorney can indict a ham sandwich if he wants to, and Mr. Earle understands that, ... The accusations harm as much as the convictions. Because all you have right now is accusations, and we're having an interview on a national television show about accusations. So they're obviously harmful or it wouldn't be news.

John Carter

When I saw that on television, it just broke my heart because I know what those miners go through.

Doris Wilson

I worked at first in a music store, and soon enough found myself hanging out with people like Patti Smith and Tom Verlaine [singer from 70s punk-band Television].

Phil Hartman

We're at the point in the business where on any given night about half of the audience isn't watching [broadcast] network television. It's not about fighting each other, it's about bringing back that audience with great programming.

Preston Beckman

I think people are encouraged that now you have television episodes that you can download. It shows that (the industry) is finally beginning to take seriously the demand for online.

Fred Von Lohmann

It is very devastating, especially having to watch it on television, when you have family members that are being bombarded by the thing.

Lance Bass

It's a Herculean feat. The thing about Jimmy is, as most classic television commentators, he is a producer first.

David Neal

I was very happy here with my job in daytime television as Erica Kane. And being able to see my children, and all of that has worked for me.

Susan Lucci

We are thrilled to have the backing of Spark Capital. Our vision is to establish a new era of television where consumers take center stage. We see Spark as the perfect partner to help us to attain that vision. They have deep understanding and experience across the media, entertainment and technology industries.

Dmitry Shapiro

We look at it as we're putting on a parade for television.

Caryn Eaves

I wasn't really interested in doing television. I don't have that much ambition. My agent, Eileen Feldman, has all the ambition for me.

Meg Tilly

The stock price has become divorced from its underlying fundamentals driven by investor enthusiasm surrounding the television shows. It may take until the shows debut or until investors see that earnings aren't coming in for the stock to crack.

Gary Mcdaniel

The anchoring job of the evening news is still the most prestigious job in American journalism, certainly in television journalism. It is the pinnacle.

Robert Zelnick

Life is so fast these days, and we're exposed to so much information. Television makes us a witness to such misery.

Gates Mcfadden

Every now and then, when you're on stage, you hear the best sound a player can hear. It's a sound you can't get in movies or in television. It is the sound of a wonderful, deep silence that means you've hit them where they live.

Shelley Winters

I think that's one of the most important gifts we have in television-the ability to heal through laughter.

Soleil Moon Frye

I don't like this reality television, I have to be honest, ... I think real people should not be on television. It's for special people like us, people who have trained and studied to appear to be real.

Garry Shandling

The message here is that [viewers will] be forced to go alternative ways of looking at shows if they want to see the real thing. It's like they're telling people that broadcast television now has much less interesting stuff than you see on the Web or cable.

Tom Fontana

The market is now and always has been fiercely competitive and we compete every day on every level of business. We're confident in our ability to surpass any competitor in terms of value and choice. We are a reality today ... I think it is one thing to talk about delivering television service someday and another to already be doing it.

Jeff Alexander

In contrast, if he gets a shock from the device -- and this device can deliver the shock much like you see on (the television show) 'ER' or something with paddles on the chest, the device does it from inside the heart -- then that is something that he will feel, and patients describe it anywhere from a giant hiccup to a mule kick in the chest.

Douglas Zipes
