Forgotten Saturdays

So few people are watching TV on Saturday nights, the program schedule has become a wasteland. “Saturday has become the forgotten night for broadcasters, who aren’t entirely sure what to do there anymore. They just know it’s not worth spending much to seek an audience that clearly has other plans. The state of network television on Saturday nights has become so dire that ABC has essentially put a prime-time slot up for auction to anyone who has a compelling idea — as long as it’s done very cheaply.”
