The Slice

The future of television

There was an interesting discussion on the PBS NewsHour last night about the future of television.

David Carr of The New York Times and Ken Auletta of The New Yorker were the guests.

They were talking about some of the ways viewers today can avoid watching advertisements. And Carr said, semi-seriously, “If you still watch commercials, you're a loser — right?”

Or something like that.

So, let me ask you. Do you still watch commercials?
