This has been for some obvious, but perhaps also some not so obvious reasons. Empiricistoriented social scientists need to bring their experiments to closure in order to test attitudes, behaviors, ideation, “before and after” – something difficult if not impossible to do with an open serial. Also, television programming is expensive, and no government agency is likely to fund a new program indefinitely. But it is also the case that the closed serial can impose an ultimate and determinant “message” upon the text (whether or not the audience chooses to take it up in the same way the producers and writers “intend” is another matter) in a way that the open serial cannot.
One solution for attracting such an audience was suggested by vaudeville, the movies, and theater: use star-power. Hence the development of variety programs featuring established stars like Fred Allen and Will Rogers. 23 The tremendous success of Amos ’ n’ Andy, however, demonstrated the potential of serial programming to attract a large audience. Created by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll in 1926 and, according to various reports, based on the comic strip “Andy Gump” or “Mutt and Jeff,” Amos ’n’ Andy relied for its appeal on audience interest in character and narrative.
18 33 ROGER HAGEDORN Serial films had also proved themselves particularly successful in cultivating specific subgroups of the consuming public. As suggested by the majority of titles cited above, serial film producers generally targeted a female audience by intertwining romance with action. After all, 75 percent of the film-going audience in the mid-1910s consisted of adult males, so for further market expansion to take place, producers needed to cultivate female consumers. By the 1930s, however, women had become accustomed to regular movie consumption and, in the wake of the transition to sound, serial production companies turned their efforts to the exploitation of a new target audience, children, with serials like Undersea Kingdom (1936).
