Sad week in TV: Read all five of my MediaPost blogs from the past week, right here (below).

NEW YORK, Aug. 28, 2015 — This week’s TV blogs gravitated from summer leisure — a mid-August tour of QVC’s mammoth studio complex in the southeast corner of Pennsylvania — to a summer tragedy: The on-air killing of two young local TV newspeople in Roanoke, Va., on Wednesday. This week of MediaPost TV blogs concluded with two columns on that subject — the first about the trust and affection TV stations and their newspeople engender in markets large and small across the Unites States, and the second about videotaped violence and how, thanks to the Internet, it’s here to stay.
