@#1 ... you mean there are people who watch network television? ...

Yes, there are.

Yes there are and thank goodness for them. Without them there wouldn't be all the shows for netflix and hulu to license.

There are already. Networks that can be received with one of the 20 dollar antennas. METV / Antenna network and STARTTV

Each of those other than Fringe...and many more...are shown multiple episodes every day.

DECADES network shows many of the 'classic' tv programs as well.

I heart the new fall TV season. When I was a kid I was obsessed with it and watched practically every new show at least once.

Even today, I play in the TV Deadpool, a long-running contest to predict 10 shows that will be cancelled each year and took over running it.
