In an article at http://www.tvpredictions.com/swannifive122308.htm Swanni is predicting "February's switch will have a devastating impact on the ratings of local TV stations and the broadcast networks (CBS, ABC, Fox, CW, NBC and MyNetwork TV) -- and the timing could hardly be worse". Is he playing with a full deck? I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around the thought process that arrives at this conclusion. Two seconds of research would tell you that the current number of US households with TV is pegged at 114.5 million, and even if you accept his number of 3 million households who "may not come along for the ride" as real (very questionable) that would represent at most 2.6% of the total market. What kind of fuzzy math is he using to come up with his "I predict that the average local TV station will lose between 5-7 percent of the audience after the February switchover. The networks will see similar declines in various degrees." Nothing in this article makes any sense at all.
