Mass media have four social functions. They are surveillance, correlation, socialization (transmission of values), and entertainment (Lasswell & Wright in Dominick, 2005). A good mass media product is supposed to fulfill all those functions. So is the television program. A good television program must include four social functions of the mass media in balance.
