Dear Television Network Executives:
In case you haven't noticed, the biggest demographic in the WORLD is baby boomers! That's right, us old farts are the majority age group now. You may thank the baby boom after World War II for that little statistic.
And just so you know, we watch a lot of television and we watch it when young people are out of the home doing other things besides watching the boob tube.
So get a clue and start running some of the great old television programs and movies from the fifties and sixties - hey even from the forties! We love the stuff, we're getting really nostalgic because that's what old fuddy duddies do, and we would love to see some of our favorite classics from the olden days.
Oh, btw, we have a lot of disposable income because we've paid off mortgages, we don't spend money on dating anymore and we don't waste cash on our kids anymore because (hopefully) they're grown up and paying their own way now. So, just think of the advertising revenue for cheaper programming (reruns cost less, come on, we all know it!)
