Number of Shows Then and Now
I looked up how many different shows there was in the 1980's. The research that I have found says that there were 1,285 different shows broadcasted during the years of 1980-1989. The amount of shows that was aired during the years of 1990-1999 is 2,020. That is an increase amount of 735 shows within ten years. Now take a look at all of the shows that have already aired for the years of 2000-2010. The total comes to 3,810 shows that was aired already by this year. The difference in the 1990's to the 2000's is 1,790 show increases. All of the numbers that I have listed is the total number of shows aired during a ten year period. That is telling me that within the next ten year there could be between 4,000 and 5,000 shows that air on the TV alone. That is not including the movie, video games, music, and all the other media devices. If we keep this rate up we are going to become a screen based society and hardly ever talk to people face to face. If we are to talk face to face with someone then the children of the future is going to have a hard time doing so. Being able to have a conversation with someone in person is important in the job field. Now take a look at the top shows from the last ten years compared to the present days.
