I think that if there ever were an alien invasion, TV wouldn't play a
part, except in announcing that there is intelligent life there.
Perhaps some general, dreaming of glorious conquests, and prevented from
doing so by the inconvenient fact that his/her/its civilization is at
peace would descend on a helpless planet and kick the living daylight
out of the natives.  Or maybe some sick perverted aliens who get their
kicks from watching death (rather like the Romans' arenas or modern-day
cockfighting) would come and capture humans for their entertainment.  Or
some real-estate developer acting on out-of-date information buys the
rights to Earth and discovers an inconvenient local population ...
