I had a thought that the peak was off.
350 million people worldwide tuned in to see who shot JR.
There were also only 4-6 media outlets in 1980. There are so many media outlets, personalities, channels, streaming etc that your 9 million people is what, 2% the media audience?
Even though kids in my jewelry class will sit there watching Arrested Development while filing silver.
Interesting. I figured they have podcasts or spotify/music streaming instead of a show.
