"This study examines the growth of fictional television in five major European countries. Focusing on drama and comedy, the survey analyzes the degree to which an increase in the production of fictional television and the extension of fictional television's presence into prime time has led to higher production costs and an emphasis on family-oriented programming. The implications of fictional television's increase in popularity on the television market as a whole and the competition for audiences and resources are explored."
