    movies or series

    I like the TV series is "Ugly Betty."

    1) Is the above sentence correct?

    2) Shall I call the weekly radio programme which announces the top 10 pop songs as Radio series?

    3) Shall I call the TV talk show as TV series as well?

    4) Do movies only stand for all showing in theatre?


    Thank you.

    1) Is the above sentence correct?

    No. I like the TV series "Ugly Betty." (American style)

    2) Shall I call the weekly radio programme which announces the top 10 pop songs as Radio series?

    No. A series tells a continuing story, at least to some extent. That's a radio show or radio program around here.

    3) Shall I call the TV talk show as TV series as well?

    No. See 2.

    4) Do movies only stand for all showing in theatre?

    No. There are made-for-TV movies that only appear on TV.

    Thank you.

    You're welcome.
