Straka, Tomáš ; Kruml, Milan (advisor) ; Štoll, Martin (referee)
This thesis deals with the analysis of the television series "Dobré ráno, Brno!" produced by Czech Television. The series serves as a parody of the original show "Dobré ráno", which is broadcast on weekdays and aims to provide "a morning dose of information and music, accompanied by interesting guests and tips". Czech Television has created a series that daringly parodies not only itself as a significant institution, including its employees, but also the television industry as a whole. The series allows for the analysis of key concepts of television entertainment, such as the use of parody, satire, humour, and hyperbole. The aim of this thesis is to determine the nature of parody in the series "Dobré ráno, Brno!" in relation to Czech Television and to examine how the series contributes to a greater genre diversity in television entertainment, particularly in the areas of parody, satire, and humour. The research method selected for this study is semiotic analysis, with an emphasis on the analysis of meanings on the level of denotation and connotation following the approach of Roland Barthes. The detailed semiotic analysis includes analysis of dialogues and verbal signs, examination of sound design, and the overall mise-en-scène analysis, including the analysis of individual characters, costumes,...

This diploma thesis deals with the comparison of Czech adaptions of the reality show Survivor - i.e. Trosečník (Prima, 2006), Robinsonův ostrov (Nova, 2017), and Survivor Česko & Slovensko (Nova, 2022). In the theoretical part, reality TV is defined at first - its definition, characteristics, reasons for success, modes of representation, and the difference between reality TV and reality are outlined, history of the format, its classification to subgenres and reality TV in the Czech Republic is introduced. A description of the globalization of television formats and the process of adapting licensed formats follows it. In the analytical part, firstly, the comparison methodology is described, and briefly, the selected adaptions and the original global format are characterized. Subsequently, a comparison of three Czech adaptions of the reality show Survivor is accomplished. In two more recent adaptions, only the show's first series is included in the comparison. The comparison of adaptions is based on the following aspects: the name of the show, program strategy (broadcasting schedule, number, and duration of episodes, sideshow), the cast (contestants and hosts), the visual and audio elements of the show, the episode structure, rules, content selection, and feedback (viewership, reviews).
Comparative analysis of News Broadcasting on Czech Television and TV Nova during the fire in Bohemian Switzerland
Dumbrovská, Zuzana ; Kruml, Milan (advisor) ; Štoll, Martin (referee)
The thesis focuses on the comparison of noon and evening news spots in Czech Television and TV Nova. The aim is to find out how much broadcasting time is devoted to the fire in Bohemian Switzerland, which is considered to be one of the largest and worst fires in the Czech Republic. We examine the period from the outbreak of the fire for approximately a week, when the situation is still on going (more precisely 24.7. - 31.7.2022). We analyze the following sessions: Události and Televizní noviny, Zprávy ve 12 and Polední Televizní noviny. We will use a quantitative analysis to provide clear, accurate and verifiable results. In addition to numerical analysis, we will also focus on the order of individual news items in the broadcast and compare events in Bohemian Switzerland with other events that have occurred in Czech Republic and around the world. The aim is to determine whether the media is subject to campaignibility, which means that media favors a particular issue over others, regardless of their actual importance. The results of this thesis could be used for further analyses in the future, which could include a larger research period and more media types.

Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on streaming services and their users
Měska, Tomáš ; Kruml, Milan (advisor) ; Štoll, Martin (referee)
This thesis examines the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on streaming services and their users. It aims to shed light on how the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the government measures and lockdowns that stifled social life and locked people in their homes for weeks, affected the use of streaming platforms by their users. This thesis focuses on the main characteristics and types of streaming services, the basic concepts associated with them, and looks at the production of new content as well as their distribution models. The subsequent section discusses the coronavirus and its impact on social behaviour, and then in particular the impact on the film industry in terms of production, content, cinema and film festival operations and of course the streaming services themselves. The final segment of the thesis then analyses and interprets the data collected in the questionnaire survey. Respondents' answers provide the basis for finding solutions to the research questions, which identify which streaming services users use, how many they use concurrently, how much time they spend watching streaming content, what categories of content they watch, or in what ways they use the services, for example in terms of devices or in comparison to other types of media.
