- Average Person: Aw, that was cute.
- Me: OMG. WHAT IS AIR. MY BEAUTIFUL OTP BEING BEAUTIFUL. EVERYTHING IS ____ AND NOTHING HURTS. BRB DYING. MY CREYS, MY BEAUTIFUL CREYS. LEGIT TEARS STREAMING DOWN MY FACE. WHY ARE THEY SO PERFECT? STOP BEING SO BEAUTIFUL. DEAD, I AM DEAD.
The first thing that every TV fan needs to understand about what shows make the cut to air is that the business is entirely based on ratings. The average TV viewer’s age is skewed upwards. We are talking people in their 40’s and 50’s being most networks prime demographics. Only once every so often do you get a really risky labor of love like Community or Firefly that get tossed on TV by a strange twist of fate and are written specifically for young fans and passionate members of TV fandoms. They usually don’t last long. You know, those shows where the creator is a big huge nerd themselves.
