Television (abreviated TV) was one of the most popular entertainment mediums on Earth in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Christopher Pike owned an antique TV set in his quarters aboard USS Enterprise, in 2254 (TOS episode: "The Cage")

A television was one of many attractions at the 1939 New York World's Fair. The new invention was described as a radio with pictures. (DS9 novelization: Far Beyond the Stars)

Roberta Lincoln had great familiarity with contemporary television programming, frequently making references to such. (TOS novels: Assignment: Eternity, The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1, The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2)

By 2040, television become outdated and finally obsolete. (TNG episode: "The Neutral Zone") Following television's demise, the popularity of stage plays saw a resurgence. (TNG novel: Debtors' Planet)

Post-21st century

Despite the obsolescence of the medium, several programs remained familiar in popular culture for years to follow:

Trip Tucker likened a story told by crewmate T'Pol to a tale from The Twilight Zone. (ENT episode: "Carbon Creek") The series' introduction of the horizon with starfield was an image Spock saw in the mind of Roberta Lincoln just before severing a meld. (TOS novel: Assignment: Eternity) Vic Fontaine was a fan of The Twilight Zone, during its 1959-1964 run. Odo said Rod Serling (Rodserl) sounded like a Romulan name. (DS9 novels: The Fall of Terok Nor, The War of the Prophets, Inferno)

In 2275, episodes of Doctor Who were presented in the USS Enterprise recreation room. (TOS novel: My Enemy, My Ally)

In 2375, Nog watched several films and television series while living in Vic Fontaine's casino. These included Shane, The Searchers and The Untouchables. (DS9 episode: "It's Only a Paper Moon")

Tom Paris was an avid fan of television, and B'Elanna Torres gave him a mid 20th century television with remote control so that he could watch old programs. (VOY episodes: "Memorial", "Workforce")

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From GuildWiki

Slang for Observer Mode. Guilds in the top 100 have all their games displayed on "TV". Often when a guild finds out that its random opponent is a top 100 guild, players say "We're on TV!" and "Don't make us look bad guys, this one's on TV". Playing on TV adds pressure to guilds who are not used to it. Being on TV makes it hard for guilds to try out innovative ideas because anything they do in a general ladder match is displayed automatically, so anyone can copy them.

GTA

(Redirected to TV Shows in GTA IV article)

From Grand Theft Wiki

Every safehouse in Grand Theft Auto IV features a TV, which can be used to watch different channels. Most of the shows are running time-shifted, so while "I'm rich" may be almost over on one channel, it may just start on another. There are three TV networks (Weazel, CNT, and Public Broadcasting Corporation), however, the channels are not numbered, so finding a show is more or less coincidental.

In The Lost and Damned, there is only one TV available, in the The Lost MC clubhouse. In The Ballad of Gay Tony, one TV is available in Luis' safehouse.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

C'mon, Scrubs is on channel 16! Where's the remote?

Television is a crude means of entertainment used by Humans. Whether it is good or bad is a matter of debate, as is all human technology. It receives broadcasts fom various different "channels", allowing for a wide range of "television shows", including news, sports events, or cartoons, such as ones with aliens who turn into things.

Surprisingly, it has had a diverse effect on Cybertronians.

Fiction

Generation One

Marvel Comics

Note: Events from the UK-only comic stories are in italics.

Shockwave watched enough television to determine humans were stupider than he had originally anticipated. The New Order

Sounds fair.

However, while Optimus Prime was out trying to figure out why he protected humans from the Decepticons, the Powermaster Slapdash came to enjoy a show called Miami Metal Clamp ... or something. Cold Comfort and Joy!

Cartoon

The race most affected by television are the Junkions, who have based their speech patterns around the use of lines from television shows. This can make it somewhat difficult to understand the Junkions and can also make initial communication difficult. TFTM After studying the Junkions while trying to recover one of their journals, a trio of Quintessons tried to make the Junkions more xenophobic and neat by broadcasting subliminal messages through the television programs. However, a mishap also caused the Junkions to begin broadcasting those tainted programs to others, causing the receiving races to begin attacking their neighbors and risk dragging the Milky Way into an interstellar dark age. Although intrigued by the prospect of supplying all those races with war materials, the Quintessons decided that the journal's recovery was more important. However, the journal was lost when the Autobots managed to destroy the device sending the affected programs. The Big Broadcast of 2006

Cybertronians are not above watching television every now and then. The Autobots are shown to be fans of a television show called As the Kitchen Sinks. This type of programming falls under the "soap opera" definition of television shows. What this says about the Autobots is open to interpretation. A Prime Problem The Aerialbots, on the other hand, became disgusted with Humanity after watching a little television. The Key to Vector Sigma, Part 2 When forced to leave his meetings with Tommy Kennedy, Powermaster Optimus Prime often left the young human with music videos to watch. Exactly how Tommy was able to watch the music videos in the lifeless wasteland he and the Autobot leader met in is currently unknown.

Even Decepticons enjoy a good show every now and then. Rampage really loves watching television, especially mindless music videos. What this says about the other Predacons is open to debate. Additionally, Mindwipe believes that his ability to make contact with the other side and communicate with the lifeforces of departed Decepticons is actually just television broadcasts he managed to pick up.

Cybertron

Jolt is a TV addict, whether or not he's not on the Internet.

Transformers Animated

The Autobots decided that a good way of learning about human customs would be to observe television programs from the comfort of their home base. They received over five thousand channels. Total Meltdown They also watched it on the world's largest flatscreen TV, so long it required both Optimus Prime and Bumblebee to carry it. Home Is Where the Spark Is Usually, they would watch cartoons with Sari Sumdac in between ninja training sessions. Survival of the Fittest Wreck-Gar's head is an old fasioned portable TV set with a handle and everything, although it is a little big in proportian to some of the humans, on his toy bio it is said that he watches more TV than Bumblebee.
