Why TV Ratings Are Way, Way Down, and a Sad High School Reunion
Recently I read an article about low TV ratings this season - apparently they're lower than ever and the major networks and advertisers are in a state of complete terror.

We've spent a ton of money on new shows and the required hype to throw them in the face of a public that can probably be entertained by shiny objects, what is going on here?"
