A TV, or television, is an item of furniture obtainable in the Animal Crossing series. Like in real life, TVs broadcast an assortment of programs when turned on, such as game shows, cartoons, or plays. TVs also feature weather forecasts that tell the player the weather of the following day. In Animal Crossing, TVs play one show that can be viewed only on a certain TV. Interestingly, most TVs in the Animal Crossing series series appear to be based on CRT monitors (which were standard among households from the late 1940's to the late 2000's), with only a select few based on HD LED monitors (which have been standard among households since the late 2000's).

Televisions

Programming

Wild World & City Folk

Programs come on at certain times of day, although in Animal Crossing, TVs show the same program depending on which type of TV it is. The following programs can be found on TV throughout the day in all games but Animal Crossing:

News

The newswoman tells about some sort of speech in one report and some sort of fire, inter-spliced with a field interview of a man, as K.K. D&B play in the background. In Happy Home Designer, the fire disaster was changed to some sort of nighttime fairground display for unknown reasons.

Weather

The Weatherman tells explains about the weather while acoustic versions of K.K. Love Song, Café K.K. and K.K. Swing play in the background. This program will also display what the weather will be like tomorrow, making it useful for planning out activities that depend on the weather (such as catching certain kinds of bugs and fish).

Soap Opera

What seems to be a young man and a woman talk at some sort of house, likely confessing their love with each other. It's likely the show Sable watches, whom she calls it Pointed Love. The music from The Roost in Wild World & City Folk can be heard.

Nature

The view switches via various landscapes, while the sound of nature and narrating voice can heard.

Cartoon

A superhero, likely styled after a power ranger is seen running at the front and posing while Go K.K. Rider can be heard playing.

Comedy

A man and a woman are showing at a stage, with the woman telling jokes while the man seems to be annoyed with it. A varied instrumentation of K.K. Ragtime is played.

Quiz

Four contestants are challenged to answer questions. The man who gives the answer gets it wrong, while the girl gets the question right.

Ball Game

There is soccer match going on, with two teams being challenged against each other.

Music

What either seems to be a live concert or a music video shows a girl with a band singing to a rendition of K.K. Jazz.

Movie

What seems to be a man with a gun attempts to make his way through the building. Afterwards, he notices someone and tries to shoot them as the building bursts into flames.

Test Pattern

A test card is shown, while a long beeping noise can be heard. The test card resembles the SMPTE Color Bars in the Japanese and North American version, while the Philips PM5544 test pattern is used in the European version.

Static

All is shown is static, as the daily run for the television broadcast is over.

Introduced in New Leaf

Commercials

RetroTV

There are six new commercials introduced in New Leaf. One of them is for a drink as the startup theme from Animal Crossing (specifically the one played when booting up a copy of the game without any town data present) is played in the background. Three other commercials are slightly modified versions of the programs that would perpetually play on the Retro TV, the Apple TV, and the Snowman TV (respectively labelled "girl", "apples", and "snow" in the schedule below) in Animal Crossing series.

AppleProgram

Aerobics

A calisthenics program based on Rajiou Taiso plays to the tune of the Morning Aerobics theme from Animal Crossing. Like Rajiou Taiso, this program only airs in the early morning.

Cooking

Talk Show

As the music inside the Happy Room Academy Headquarters from City Folk play at the beginning, there's a woman talking to a man, likely expressing their feelings.

Cat & Mouse

A cat and a mouse chase each other around in a pastiche of the Tom and Jerry animated short films while K.K. Country plays in the background.

UFO

A strange alien transmission that appears from 3:33 AM to 3:34 AM on Sunday and Monday. It seems to be delivering a message of some sort.
