    This paper analyses the paleoTV, neoTV and metaTV features in three US drama series belonging to drama series genres and adventure subgenres: adventures («Lost»), crime («CSI: Crime Scene Investigation») and politics («The West Wing»). The aim of the research is to study these TV series in relation to the three eras which divide the short history of TV up to today, to determine the features that define this media in serial fiction and its relation to its own diachronic moment. The methodology of this work is based on the concepts of several scholars and makes references to other US fiction series. It emphasizes the autoreferenciality and intertextuality as some of metaTV's most important features.
