Mr. Meister,

A lot of viewers believe it is their right to get free TV.

Nowhere in my article do I say anything about people "believing its their right to get free TV". All I was pointing out is that due to several technological advancements, (enabled in some cases by subsidiaries of the same companies which own the networks), the current model for ad driven TV is starting to fail and that the viewer now has more control than the content producer/provider.

Watching on You Tube or PVR the next day without the commercials does not count since since it does not pay for the show.

That's exactly my point. Why aren't content producers finding a way to exploit those potential revenue streams? The technology exists, all it needs is someone with an ounce of cajones to make the attempt.

As an aside, I thought I'd update the member counts I mention in the article as of the time of this comment's posting:

Team Conan - 168,000+

I'm With CoCo - 322,000+

Team Leno - 2,000+
