Television crime dramas and shows are very popular all over the world.This popularity is not bound to a certain age group, rather all the TV viewers like these shows very much.Like other countries, dozens of TV channels are telecasting these crime shows in Pakistan.Furthermore, few of the channels telecast crime shows at prime time which attests the popularity of such genre.Some of the media contents behave in morally disputed ways.The crime depictions as re-enactments of TV crime shows are questionable in the field of research signifying diverse cultural contexts.A large number of people are habitual to watch these shows, which may probably come out with negative behavioural outcomes.Especially the children who are at their behavioural developmental phase; are more susceptible to adopt negative behavioural leanings.In this research effort, introduction and detail of TV crime shows in Pakistan are provided, the literature concerning “media as risk factor” in children development is discussed, and relevant theories inferences are was found that media has powerful role in behaviour formulating of children and violence media portrayal (TV crime shows) may appear with grave concerns.Previous scientific literature was reviewed to find and discuss the problem in hand. In the research effort, the literature review provides research propositions to explore further dimensions to TV crime shows’ effects and possible negative or positive behavioural outcomes in children behaviour.
