If someone's watching a show and someone changes the channel, I know that it's natural to use "Change it back!" or "I was watching that!" but can this be used too:
Put it on!
And when generally speaking:
I put on X. (show)

You are more likely to say Put it back on than just Put it on.
Generally speaking, you put on the television set. But people would understand put on a show to mean dialling it up on the television set.
The expression can also be used in the context of producing a show - in the sense of putting on a performance for an audience.
