TV is doomed. Where college kids used to list owning one as their first priority when setting up their dorm room, today they don’t even want one. The habits they form in college will last forever. The budgets reflect this. Where some broadcasters are letting budgets sink as low as $80k/ep, Internet stations such as Netflix and Amazon are releasing budgets that are up in the 250k zone. Internet TV is more versatile and easier to find than scheduled television. It also appears to be more in tune with its audience. Arrested Development was canceled because the network assumed nobody watched it. After the show was canned, fans went ballistic and wouldn’t shut up until Netflix picked up the show. They launched the first episode last night and people “came.”
