TV Station Manager This managerial strategy game requires you to manage a successful TV Network. Time elapses as you make your decisions, which essentially involves planning the evening's schedule and then watching to see how high the viewing figures are, and which demographics (kids/teens/adults/older people) have watched the show.

The player starts with a small roster of programs (split into movies, set-length series and daily shows) and must choose timeslots for these. Ready-made shows can be purchased, or you can create your own by specifying the plot, setting and cast. There is little money for this at the start of the game, which is where advertising revenue comes in.

Each programming timeslot has an advertisement attached to it. Advertisers offer deals requiring you to show their advert a set number of times in a set time period, with each viewing requiring a certain-sized audience (either overall or within their target market) to be credited. There are penalties for not screening an ad frequently enough, so the player must be careful not to purchase too many. [source:mobygames]
