How TV Lost Me, Same for You?

    I remember the good ole days when you could count on your programs to be on a certain night and at a certain time. Like the lineup of All in the Family, Maude, Mary Tyler Moore, Rhoda, etc. Now new shows debut on one night, then switch to a different night and time (trying to get more recognition), and many times switch again and again. It is when they started doing this that I lost interest in most programs. You just couldn't count on them to be there on a certain night.

    I wonder if the executives who made these decisions realize how their intense chaotic marketing has really destroyed viewership.

    It's only a matter of time before all TV programs are online...kinda like South Park and Family Guy (and probably others that I'm not aware of).

    A series only last 6 months now as opposed to what use to be a yr and possibly a 3 week hiatus in the winter.

    I haven't owned a TV since 2008. I'd like to say it opened up a world of free time, but the vacuum was entirely replaced with me being glued to my laptop.

    TV ... at least the network version of it is going to go the way of the other outdated modes of entertainment like video cassettes and walkmen

    I almost exclusively watch things via the net
    and I don't even know what's being put on the networks anymore
