Abstract

What is the point of studio audiences in high-profile political leaders’ debate TV programmes, and what should they do? This chapter considersthe first question using Coleman’s Spectacle/Reflection distinction, and proposes that answering the second can be helped by distinguishing between Outcome and Process analyses of democracy. It ends by suggesting that these approaches can be a useful way of thinking about audiences and political journalism more generally, beyond debates and beyond TV.
