Televisão (Television) is the second studio album released by Brazilian rock band Titãs. It is the first album to feature Charles Gavin on drums, after André Jung's departure. Unlike the previous album, the music of Televisão is more pop-rock oriented. Criticizing songs like "Televisão", "Pavimentação" and "Autonomia" may be seen as predecessors for the songs from Cabeça Dinossauro, and these come along with pop songs about love such as "Pra Dizer Adeus" (whose later acoustic recording would be a hit in Brazil), "Insensível" and "Sonho Com Você".

Televisão is the second single by Titãs, released in 1985. The song criticizes television, how it has dominated people's life and how it presumably reduces people's intelligence, as expressed in the lines "A televisão me deixou burro, muito burro demais" (Television made me dumb, too much dumb).

It would be later used as the credit music for Beyond Citizen Kane.
