Movies About TV

This started out as a list of a few movies I just wanted to keep together in my head, but it has grown quite a bit over time. Now, this list is a (still very incomplete) catalog of movies that are about television, whatever that may entail. Ones about TV news are the most appealing to me personally, but I am trying to find all TV-centric films that I can.
