dc.description.abstract The television viewing habits of ten Indianapolis-based households were researched and analyzed as to the effects of television on the middleclass American family. This study illustrates how television reinforces Americans' abilities to make choices and exhibit control over technology. With television use as its main focus, this study examines choice in American culture, remote control use, gender-based comparisons, and television's role in the American home-individualism and community.
