TV as we know it today is dying.
While visiting my college-aged nephew in Cincinnati over the weekend, I asked him if he misses TV (since his apartment lacked one). “Miss it? I never even watched it back at school.”
And his experience is not a lone voice. Querying more than a dozen other people his age and in their mid-to-late 20s — and the experiences of their friends as well — all produced eerily similar responses.
Generation Y — the Millennials — and every generation after it has little interest in television, especially once they hit their teens. As young adults, they simply don’t watch it.
Instead, they turn to the Internet, and use it for virtually all of their entertainment needs (save for video games, which are also played on their computers, and to a declining extent, dedicated gaming consoles).
Will anyone care if traditional TV watching goes the way of radio before it — used to watch a select few programs a couple of times a week?
