So sayeth Newton Minow

"I invite you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there without a book, magazine, newspaper or profit-and-loss sheet or rating book to distract you and keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that you will observe a vast wasteland."

Newton Minow, U.S. Federal Communications Commission , 1961
