Warm-Up
Perhaps no phenomenon shaped American life in the 1950s more
thanTELEVISION. At the end of World War II, the television was
a toy for only a few thousand wealthy Americans. Just 10 years
later, nearly two-thirds of American households had a television.

Why do you think the TV was instrumental in shaping American


life during the decade of the 1950s? Explain and Justify your
response!
In what way do you think the TV impacted the economy of the
1950s? Explain and Justify your response!
CHALLENGE! Although beloved by many, the TV also was
criticized by some. Why do you think some were critical of this
new type of technology? Explain and justify!

Television did indeed change politics forever.

It did not take long for political advertisers to understand


the power of the new medium.
Dwight Eisenhower's campaign staff generated sound

bites short, powerful statements from a candidate


rather than air an entire speech.

Television and the Family

Americans loved situation comedies


sitcoms.
In the 1950s,I LOVE LUCY topped the

ratings charts.

Television created an idyllic view of


what the perfect family life should look
like (Father Knows Best)
briefcase-toting professional father who left

daily for work, and a pearls-wearing,


nurturing housewife who raised their
mischievous boys and obedient girls.

With rare exceptions (such as Desi


Arnaz) members of minorities rarely
appeared on television in the 1950s.

Westerns and Heroes

America's fascination with the Wild West


was nothing new, but television brought
Western heroes into American homes
and turned that fascination into a love
affair.
Westerns reinforced the '50s notion that
everything was OK in America.
Like THE LONE RANGERorZORRO, most

programs of the early 1950s drew a clear line


between the good guys and the bad guys.

Emphasis on good guys over bad guys


helped build up Cold War sentiments of good
over evil (U.S. vs. U.S.S.R)

Commercials: Selling
through the Screen

With more and more American families


owning televisions, manufacturers now
had a new way to sell their products, and
the TELEVISION COMMERCIALwas
born.
By 1950, sponsors were leaving radio for

television at an unstoppable rate.

Television sponsors ranged from greeting


cards to automobiles, but perhaps the
most advertised product was tobacco.
In 1950, Coca-Cola launched its first television
ad campaign using a combination of animation
and celebrity endorsement.

TWS Assess the


validity of the following
statement:
By 1954, television
commercials were the
leading advertising
medium in America.
The life of the American
consumer would never
be the same.

Criticism Primary Source

But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite you to


sit down in front of your television set when your station
goes on the air and stay there without a book, magazine,
newspaper, profit-and-loss sheet or rating book to distract
you and keep your eyes glued to that set until the
station signs off. I can assure you that you will observe a
vast wasteland. You will see a procession of game shows,
violence, audience participation shows, formula comedies
about totally unbelievable families, blood and thunder,
mayhem, violence, sadism, murder, western bad men,
western good men, private eyes, gangsters, more violence
and cartoons. And, endlessly, commercials many
screaming, cajoling and offending. And most of all,
boredom.
