This study aims to expose some thoughts about the reformulation of the social bond constituted with the television, through remembrances evoked among television viewers involving a tele-affective memory and new formats inside audiovisual consumption. In addition to this, it analyses the comments of people that watched a remake of the Brazilian program Cassino do Chacrinha (Chacrinha’s Casino), which aired in 2017 on Rede Globo de Televisão (TV Globo) and Canal Viva (Viva), commemorating the centenary of Abelardo Barbosa, a very important Brazilian TV host who acted between the ’70s and ’80s. Our methodology follows the Content Analysis mobilised by Laurence Bardin (2011) in relation to texts posted on Twitter containing the expression “Cassino do Chacrinha” in August 3, 2017 (aired on Viva) and September 6, 2017 (aired on TV Globo). We want to discuss the relationship between imaginary, memory, and social bond starting from a televisual archive, where we present tele-affective marks of memory through substantial and shared images that appear in these analysed comments.
