No Minister

Your Graphics friend who’s fun to be with.

I know that broadcast TV has been falling away as its Boomer audience ages and dies but it’s not until you see a fact like this that you can grasp the scale of it:

Fifty million Americans tuned in to Johnny Carson’s last appearance on The Tonight Show. Today, his Tonight Show successor, along with the egregious Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on CBS, barely have 2 million viewers on a good night…

Carson’s farewell was in 1992. The following is always the sign of a maturing industry, and often a dying one.

Of course there are still growth industries (graphic courtesy of The Times). The last US flight out of Kabul departed a few hours ago.

So I guess it’s back to focusing on Chinese Lung Rot, with a seeming increase in social and media pressure to vaccinate kids now.

I wonder what we’re doing to the usual building of immune systems in children?

  2. Where’s that Wayne chap who was telling everyone not to worry because all the aircraft had been flown out before the bad buggers got there?
