New Article: Writing the Networks in the 1960s

I’m not quite sure how I feel about this article. I think the subject matter is very interesting but I’m worried the article itself isn’t. So take a few minutes to read Writing the Networks in the 1960s and let me know what you think:

During the 1960s, tens of thousands of letters poured into to the mail rooms of the television networks. Some complained about commercials or violence or controversial content. Others asked for medical advice or suggested ways to improve a certain program. Sometimes the letters didn’t make much sense at all. But each and every one was read and given a reply. The networks took audience research seriously, using it to gauge reaction to their programs. Learn who was reading viewer letters during the 1960s and how many were received.
