— Television, Lost and Found
Television is a male contestant on Object Overload and it's reboot.
Television appears to be a vintage television, a television that was seen through the 60's to the 90's. His body is brown, his screen is multiple shades of gray, his antennae and side buttons are reddish-gray, and his knobs are maroon.
Out of all the newbies that first appeared in Set in Stone, Television is the most spiteful out of them all. He is somewhat extremely short-tempered: he is normally calm, but when he gets aggravated, he can lose temper. He is renown for screaming and having tantrums, according to Niall. He is also known to impersonate other contestants, literally mimicking their personalities. Examples of this are when he impersonated Cherry in the unreleased episode, or when he mimics Candy for being complain-ish in Set in Stone. Despite this nature, he is scared a little easily. Television speaks with a British or Australian accent.
Set in Stone
In Television's debut episode, Gamey decides to open his Christmas presents, prompting Top Hat was scared that he was in the bottom two when Gamey decides too open his presents. Television pops out and lands on the ground quickly, having both his antennae bent. Television indirectly earns the other latecomers a spot on the show, when he asks for clarification of the type of show Object Overload is. Television, along with other latecomers agrees to be in the show, he is shown to be happy when he is told that he can join.
- RUNNING GAG: due to his preference of being called "Television" over "TV," Television is shown to despise being called TV various times. This is similar to Needle from Battle for Dream Island since she hates being called "Needy."
- Niall had told a now deactivated DeviantArt user named BFDIArtist some backstory behind this running gag. As a child, Niall hated it when televisions were called "Tvs" for an unknown reason and had thought of a character that was a television before watching episode 3 of Battle for Dream Island.
- In Lost and Found it is revealed that Tiki and Television lived on an island before being trapped in a box.
- Television can change channels if one of his antennae is hit or moved by an object (as seen in Rostrum Rampage), or if his remote is pressed (as seen in reboot's intro)
- However, in Set in Stone, Television's antennae is bent, but he doesn't change channel.
- There is a silent movie-like short called "Television's Day Out" that features Television.
- It was "written and programmed" by Television.
