The Conclusion surveys the aims of the book: to offer an introduction to the study of the quiz show, while also contributing to the scholarly visibility of the genre. It argues that with regard to television history, issues of institutional regulation, television aesthetics, the circulation of programme formats or fan research, the quiz show has much to tell us about television as an object of study. The Conclusion returns to questions of the low cultural value, and academic marginalisation of the genre, and points to avenues for future research. It also cautions against seeing the quiz show as a homogenous genre with ‘simple’ ideological messages.
