This article aims to analyze a TV show called "Kalp Gözü" and broadcasted by Kanal 7 in terms of folklore. To this end first, the relationship between "Kalp Gözü" and legend, one of the oral literary woks, will be questioned. It is emphasized that the cases dealt with in "Kalp Gözü" are not fictional, but experienced as real events. The parallelism between emphases on the reality of the events and "memorat"s will be displayed by means of an analysis. Additionally there are characters that are appeared in 22 episodes taken into consideration and characteristics of legendary heroes stated in the Motif Index of Stith Thompson will be compared, and stereotypes will be concretized. In the last part of the article, the given data will be evaluated in the light of Walter J. Ong's "secondary oral culture" concept.
