The networks have tried many different types of programming on these two nights and have not been successful. Even if the ratings are geared towards older viewers, if the older viewers tune in, and if they can attract other viewers in addition to the older viewers, the total viewers might be more than whatever they're getting now. Isn't the main goal of the networks is to get as many viewers to watch the programs that they put on the air? I understand it is also about making profit off of the programming. This might be a way to argue that they can attract more viewers with the classic programs that put on the air. My argument is that this is just like a retail store. If they're not open when you need them, and you're forced to go somewhere else, sooner or later you get out of the habit of going there. So if Kroger closes at 9:00, but Meijer's is open until midnight, you're going to get into the habit of going to Meijer's and Kroger's fades away for you. Radio tried that. The argument is that they have so few listeners after 7:00 p.m. that it's not worth it to have live talent. You can see how relevant radio is everywhere except for the car anymore. 4 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
