|Flip through the channels on your television this week and find a show that has popular music as an essential ingredient. We are looking for regular television shows that put popular music front and center. Examples are:
· American Idol
· The Voice
· America’s Got Talent
· Disney Channel shows like Jonas L.A. or Hannah Montana
Sit back on your couch, watch the show, and answer the following questions:
· What is the role of the music in the show?
· How is the popularity of the music on this show affecting the music market? (For instance, does it drive the consumer to iTunes or Disney.com?)
· What is the demographic the show is trying to reach?
· How does the music help the audience (you and I) connect with the show?
· Could the show be produced without music? How important is it? What would happen without it?
· Are their similarities between this show and shows of the past such as The Ed Sullivan Show which introduced music and new musical acts to the American masses?
· What was your personal reaction to the show and the music? Did it hook you in? Did you enjoy it? Would you watch it again?
