The Problem with TV
The IHT has a great comment piece from founder of Wallpaper Tyler Brule.
He argues that modern TV schedules offer the view almost nothing that they want and certainly nothing that they could sit down and watch all evening.
“Last weekend, after my whirlwind Tokyo-New York-London tour, I got back to London and wanted a low-effort Saturday of book shopping, a run around Regent’s Park, a good Lebanese dinner, a movie and some Saturday television. The first four were all doable, but hitting an uninterrupted stretch of decent television was next to impossible. I’m not the world’s biggest TV viewer nor am I a programming expert, but I would have thought Saturday evenings might still be a time when network execs pull out all the stops and make a bit of an effort to entertain the masses.”
