TV Junkie: Monday
AdWeek reports that the most recent comCast data shows that while the flow of people who go online to watch video has slowed down somewhat, the amount of video they watch online has exploded (like a Jerry Bruckheimer film).
And it's no wonder, look at the garbage below to see what these people are fleeing. This is another one of those "there's nothing on TV tonight" nights. Late night is nothing but reruns except for CBS and their guests aren't worth mentioning, although I imagine that David Letterman will say a few choice words about the late George Carlin.
Speaking of George Carlin, please note that HBO will be presenting hours of George Carlin both Wednesday and Thursday nights this week. More to come.
