Over 600 Of Them

I’m particularly interested in the state of “closings” on TV these days.

600

Last winter I watched the intro of a local newscast during a winter weather event where the anchor said, “Watch the bottom of your screen for closings, there are over 600 of them.” (emphasis only partially mine)

I didn’t wait around to count, but I’m not even sure you can get through 600 closings in a 22 minute newscast.  Do we really expect viewers to have noses pressed to the screen, like when we were kids.  Breathlessly waiting to see “PS172: Closed”, so they can dance around the living room before getting suited up with snow shovel, sled, and carrot for the nose, and dashing out the door.

We used to have a monopoly on a lot of things, but the Internet eats middlemen…..before going out for a full day of playing in the snow.
