Nigel Patterson of EIN has written this fabulous look at Elvis on Television.
NOT Elvis' actual TV appearances, but rather all those Elvis themes & references on the small screen.
Elvis Rules On Television!
EIN has often said that Elvis has become an integral part of our socio-cultural fabric. His name, image or likeness appears regularly in our daily lives in our conversations, in movies, in newspapers and magazines, as part of television and radio commercials and on television. Many fans may not realise that Elvis has been the narrative theme or secondary device for many television programs.
To date there have been few serious examinations of Elvis themes on television and most listings of Elvis on television have focused on US programming. What follows is arguably the most comprehensive listing of Elvis themes, reference points and motifs on the small screen, taking in programs from the US, UK, Europe and Australia.
This article does not cover Elvis's own appearances on television - these are comprehensively covered in many other published works.
In August 2005 this article was expanded to include feature films with an Elvis theme
This Elvis spotlight features sections on
1. Science Fiction Genre
2. Supernatural/Horror Genre
5. News Magazines/General Entertainment
6. Music Shows
7. Audience Participation Shows
9. Films and TV Movies
