 Ain't this cool? Why tshoes (sorry, it's a pun!) between a political debate show, a Turkish melodrama, an action movie, and a reality TV program when you can have them all rolled into one (and at prime time nonetheless). Introducing the new grid on a Jordanian channel which created a new format encompassing all of these genres at the same time! The original detailed link comes courtesy of the Guardian. Ain't this cool? A global breakthrough in television broadcasting originating from this very region!
