Reception

Television has generally been well received by critics. Rock critic Robert Christgau wrote "I prefer the more rocking, songful old Television, but it's a tribute to Tom Verlaine's conceptual restlessness and force of personality that in a world where alternative guitar means making noise or mixing and matching from the used bins, these four veterans have regrouped with a distinct new sonic identity. Droll, warm-hearted, sophisticated, cryptic, jazzy yet unjazzlike, they sound like nothing else—except, just a little, old Television". David Fricke of Rolling Stone wrote that "It was worth waiting fifteen years." Milo Miles of The New York Times wrote "Trying to adjust after a long layoff, these musicians have assembled a scaled-down Television, though one with exquisite design details."
