Questions tagged [tv]

For questions about content on television, in order to distinguish it from other types of story. Do NOT use this tag for every question which happens to be about a TV show: it is normally used only on story-ID questions and in cases where it would otherwise be unclear whether the question was about a television show or (e.g.) a film.
