2009 and 2010: http://www.nielsen.com/content/dam/c...-dma-ranks.pdf

Over the years there has been a decline that started all over the country, in the last year that decline has intensified. It looks like the Internet age is killing off the Nielsen Media Television Markets. I will include Seattle, Miami, Denver, Detroit, San Diego, and a few others later on but the general trends with those will mirror these.

Remember the song "video killed the radio store" back in the 1980s?

Looks like Internet killed the video store.

It's "Video Killed the Radio Star". They just have some sort of weird accent and can't enunciate the word.

Good, blame it on corporate radio. They have killed radio. Every major market in this country sounds the same.

Ryan Seacreast and Clear channel radio. Thankfully a handful of independent radio stations still exist where I am at.

Television was bound to decline the way radio declined when television was surging, the way the newspaper declined was the radio was surging in popularity, so on. The Internet is just killing all other forms of media these days.

The last one year has been especially brutal, some places were already declining and the last one year has intensified their erosion.

2014 - 2015 change in the number of households with television:
01. New York: -18,760
02. Los Angeles: -141,980
03. Chicago: -56,830
04. Philadelphia: -9,740
05. Dallas/Fort Worth: -51,610
06. San Francisco Bay Area: -42,040
07. Boston: -9,400
08. Washington DC: -3,260
09. Atlanta: -40,530

10. Houston: + 11,870

Three of these media markets Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles have fewer households in their television markets today than they had in 2009, to put into perspective. Everywhere else is a year behind in declining and not at that point yet but by next year several more places will be smaller than as compared to 2009.

Aside from one place, all media markets in the top ten are now contracting and becoming smaller each year.

What's going on with Houston that's making it steadily increase?

Also if internet is killing TV I wonder what will eventually kill the internet. Hope I'm around long enough to see what the next big thing will be.

I wasn't actually around when that song came out. I forgot how the song went and probably should've googled it

Once the internet is more under control by government, and big business gets an even better handle on things with ads and commercials (already getting much worse), I'm hoping that nature will be the next big thing. While I know it won't be, I remember having parties in the woods with friends (huge bonfires), with no cell phones...just the people around the fire.

How else do you get away from the constant noise and garbage that's so widespread on tv today? Reality tv, constant solicitation of the public through ads (e.g. pharmaceuticals, lawyers, etc), cheesy crime show after cheesy crime show....total waste of time.

I love nature but I hope nature doesn't become the next big thing. There are enough plebs polluting our national parks and littering everywhere.
