I stopped watching television shows in the 1974-75 season. Only very rarely after that did I look at something regularly.
By the 1976-77 season I dropped out keeping what was on television completely. And I haven't looked back. I actually haven't turned on a television at all since July 2004, for news or anything. And I don't miss it at all. For the most part, entertainment has been a cultural sewer for about 35 years, in both movies and television, all because of the intensely-important 18-35 demographic that advertisers and marketers strenuously crave.
That's a good observation: advertisers want that 18-34 demographic, but offer them Viagra ads. Long-term planning?
