Abstract

The aim of this article is to explore criteria of quality in the views of professionals in the field of television and what kind of criteria of quality across genre can be found in the audiovisual field. Data has been compiled in the United States and
Finland by interviewing professionals in the field of television, who act as producers, directors, educators or in leading positions in award organizations, such as Peabody- and Emmy Awards.
The analysis has been carried out phenomenographically. As a result of the quality discussion and the mutual comparison of television programs, three groups of quality criteria exceeding the genres emerged. These groups are 1) professionalism, 2) impact, and 3) popularity.
