About this Quote

This quote by Johnny Carson is an amusing way of revealing the value of Philo T. Farnsworth's creation of tv. Without television, we would still be counting on radio for entertainment and info. This would imply that we would still be consuming frozen dinners, as there would be no other way to enjoy cooking programs or find out about brand-new recipes. Television has actually become an essential part of our lives, and it has actually changed the way we take in media and entertainment. We owe a great financial obligation of appreciation to Philo T. Farnsworth for his innovation of tv, as it has allowed us to delight in a variety of material and experiences that would not have actually been possible without it.
