I was reading this Instapundit-linked NYT article on declining TV ratings among men, especially the 18-24 demographic. I thought over my immediate circle of friends, and realized that I'm the only one who actually has cable TV. Of course, they're older than the demographic the article is talking about, but this realization was disquieting. There really is a drift away from broadcast television in my social circle. To tell the truth, I rarely watch TV except when I'm playing ancient wargames on my equally ancient home computer, and even then, it's more of a radio-with-pictures than the type of engrossed viewing that one thinks of when saying "I'm watching TV!".
