Here's a good combination that could equal the death of US drama on TV

So on the one hand, US broadcast networks are getting worried that all the good writers are leaving for cable. The good writers don't want to go through the development process at the networks.

On the other hand, cable subscriptions are dropping in the US, down from 65.4% of US homes in 2006 to 55.3% now.

So if everyone's going to cable to sell drama, but cable is dying…

Well, it's more complicated than that, but you see my point?

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
