According to this MSNBC article.
Wow, isn't this kind of opposite of what we've been seeing/posting here lately where cable TV subscribers have been dwindling and antenna sales have been much higher over the past 3-4 years?
I've got news for the article writer, cable keeps pumping out the same ole crap too.
Did you watch Modern Family, Survivor, or Law & Order: SVU last week? If so, you were a member of a dwindling club -- the Nielsen ratings for all three of these broadcast TV stalwarts dipped to their lowest levels in years, if not all time. Competition from cable and other media continues to chip away at what used to be big TV's nearly unassailable market share.
Meanwhile, big media continues to pump out endless variations of tired old formulas. Every season sees a host of new sitcoms, one or two crime procedural series, and the occasional reality show. These onetime revenue pumpers aren't drawing like they used to -- the aforementioned Law & Order: SVU, for example, tied its lowest rating of all time last week.
