Every advertising selling season, broadcast-network executives must privately ask themselves the same question: "How much longer can we defy gravity?"
Through the first quarter of 2004, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox combined had a 48 percent share of viewers ages 18 to 49, the sweet spot for advertisers. In 2013, their share was down to 34 percent.

Robertson said he believed the interviewer already "had what he wanted to put" in the article and goated Phil into making those statements by "specifically asking this and that."

"One of these things is not like the others; one of these things is not the same," Glenn says after the family's Christmas photo pops up. Obeidallah adds: "I think that this picture is great. It really sums up the diversity of the Republican Party. The RNC — at the convention — they find the one black person." Harris-Perry chimes in as well, joking that...
