Série télévisée Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Aux États-Unis, chaque épisode d'une série télévisée est le plus souvent diffusé en prime time selon une programmation hebdomadaire, afin de fidéliser les téléspectateurs. En France, les séries françaises comme Navarro ou Julie Lescaut sont diffusées selon une programmation irrégulière. En revanche, les séries importées des États-Unis sont généralement diffusées quotidiennement en journée, ou hebdomadairement, par deux ou trois épisodes à la suite, en soirée[3]. Certaines séries sont importées depuis d'autres pays. Les séries télévisées, diffusées par des centaines de chaînes à travers le monde, ont influencé les téléspectateurs sur plusieurs générations et ont profondément marqué leurs habitudes[4].
