"Television, for better or worse, is a part of who we are; we use it to tell stories of ourselves, and others. We use television to organize the everyday, the here and now, the there and then."

What is the difference between these two? As I understand it 'here and now' means present moment; there and then - at that precise time. Isn't it the same, more or less?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong :) :) :)

    here and there = refers to the place
    now and then = refers to the time
