This chapter describes the impact of television on fan magazines. In the 1950s, television not only challenged the film industry for audience and revenue, but also created an audience for a new type of fan magazine—one in which the motion picture had to compete with television for space and publicity. By the mid-1950s, television fan magazines included TV People, TV Star Parade, and TV World. Between 1961 and 1966, fan magazines discovered that television stars sold as many issues as several of their movie counterparts.
