TV Nation was a satirical newsmagazine television series written, directed and hosted by Michael Moore that was broadcast in the USA on NBC in the summer of 1994, FOX in the summer of 1995, and in the UK by the BBC. It contained investigative reports into various aspects of American life interspersed with survey results that showed the American public to be less than educated about issues that matter.
The show featured segments such as "The Corporate Challenge," in which CEOs are challenged to prove they can use the products their companies create; the storming of a supposedly "private" beach; a campaign to have Congress declare a "TV Nation Day"; and "Crackers, the Corporate Crime-Fighting Chicken." Among its correspondents were Janeane Garofalo, Karen Duffy, Jonathan Katz and Louis Theroux.
TV Nation won an Emmy in 1995 for Outstanding Informational Series. Adventures In A TV Nation, a book about the series written by Moore and the show's producer, Kathleen Glynn , was published in 1998.
The show was named number 90 on the list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes.
