The bibliography on analyses of television programing provided in this paper indicates the types of content analyses that have been conducted on television programing over much of the last 30 years.

Categories include (1) content study, (2) television, (3) black images on television, (4) children's television programing, (5) news content, (6) old age on television, (7) political content, (8) sex role content analyses, (9) soap operas, (10) violence on television, and (11) miscellaneous. The studies have been cross-referenced across categories where applicable. An essay preceding the bibliography focuses on the methodology and theoretical perspectives underlying content analyses of television programing. (RL)
