No More TV Theme Songs?

“Back in the day, even into the ’90s, shows usually had a ‘main title,’ a 40- to 60-second opening montage that introduced the cast and was often set to music written by a composer. Songs summed up what a show was all about… But now many sitcoms and one-hour dramas are dropping that device. They dive straight into the action, sometimes flashing the show’s title or logo at various points throughout an episode.”
