It’s heartening to know that one of the reasons for the growth of social networking is the surfeit of drivel emanating from the TVs across America. TV today is so bad for teens and Gen Y that they watch reruns almost as much as original programming. How many times can you watch New York wave her hands in Flavor Flav’s face?
This epiphany came to me while reading a Facebook blog about how its log-ons tank as soon at Grey’s Anatomy goes on air.
Why do kids like Flav? Because he’s entertaining. His antics, even the third time, are better than the teen psycho-dramas of prime time television.
Let’s improve the programming and I bet the TV numbers come back up for the young demo. Pretty simple.
