Actually, your point is not lost you have just run across people who are void of new ideas which is why we have the same thing on the air in different packages on every form of media that exists. Heaven forbid we ever try anything new. Just keep whatever audience you can and DO IT CHEAP! CHEAP! CHEAP!
The point isn't lost. It was never really a point to begin with. Especially when the buses-on-Sunday analogy came around. That was a doozie! What you all are asking for is for someone to entertain you. What do the people entertaining you have to gain? Fighting with 200 channels for recognition among the small number of diehard Friday/Saturday night viewers who, surprisingly by now, haven't realized that there's not been anything on Friday/Saturday nights in 15 years?
It really has nothing to do with any of the people here or their willingness to try something new.
I know yall mean well, but dang. Drop some reality into the cauldron before you make the programming stew.
For the sake of hypotheticals, let's say we "try something new." How will you convince someone to watch it? Lots of promos and ads on those empty buses running on Sundays?
You're going to have to go viral on the internet, and sustain it. There's no water-cooler talk on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
I'm with the "wasted tv days end in y" theory, mostly. I watch tv if I'm there, but it's been several years since I have made it a point to be there for anything specific. If I see your commercial and it says "A great new show is on Saturday nights!" I'll probably file that away with all the times I've seen that same ad for "Meet The Browns."
