Old people watch more TV

According to this article:

Young Americans just aren't watching TV like they used to.

Put another way, the older you get, the more you watch, according to a report due out Thursday from Deloitte indicating that "millennials," the generation of ages 14-25, watch just 10.5 hours of TV a week.

That compares with 15.1 hours for those belonging to Generation X (ages 26-42), 19.2 hours for baby boomers (43-61) and 21.5 hours for matures (62-75).

Of course, this younger generation is spending much more time on the computer I'm sure, getting entertainment through things like YouTube. But it does make me wonder ... forty or fifty years into the future, how will the demographics for YouTube and other social media change? And what new stuff will take its place? Or will YouTube even be around?

By the way ... cool ... I'm a "millennial"! Didn't know my generation had a nickname yet... better than "generation y".
