NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) -

CBS and ABC fell to their lowest ratings among the coveted adults 18-49 demographic in two decades last week, as reruns and summer alternatives drove viewers from their couches. "

Is this really a surprise? Not to me. The networks have provided the lowest common denominator of "entertainment"--and I use the term with some trepidation--and now that isn't even appealing to anyone.

Bring back sitcoms with good ensemble casts and witty writers!
