Positive sign in a sea of crisis.

Taking a break from our impending DOOOOOOM at the hands of whatever media boogyman they have on tap this week, I note this positive sign: Ownership of televisions declined a bit this year.
According to Nielsen's annual "Television Audience" report that was released this week, the number of households with a TV set will decline. The rising trend of TV ownership has been leveling off in recent years, and now the number has dropped from 115.9 million homes in 2011 to an estimated 114.7 million in 2012. As TV Barn pointed out, that's a 1 percent decline despite the number of households rising.

Not discussed in the article is the number of people that use their TV as a big monitor for Netflix and game consoles.

As the Captain likes to say, "Enjoy the decline!"

Yep, my flatscreen has an Apple TV box hooked to it. Watch DVDs and Netflix. No cable, no broadcast.

Because really, why would I -pay- to watch more Leftist propaganda? Movies are bad enough as it is.
