Here's a really dumb, inconsequential question.

If you have characters watching TV (actually it's on in the background, in this case), and you want the dialogue on TV to be easily distinguished from the dialogue between the characters watching, would you put the TV dialogue in italics, or would that be annoying?

Currently I have the entire paragraph in italics, not just the dialogue, to separate the action, too, but I think that's completely wrong and, well, looks stupid.

I won't know without reading it, but... I use italics to distinguish TV, Radio, and inner thoughts. Though I rarely use inner thoughts now.

Yeah, inner thoughts is another of those bad habits I've tried to grow out of.
