Globe reduces TV listings

Just weeks after The Gazette reduced the size of its TV Times to save paper, the Globe and Mail has done the same thing, though they’re being a bit coy about why, calling it “more consise.” Needless to say that didn’t fool everyone.

But since I can’t find anyone blogging about it, I wonder whether too many people care. How many young people check the newspaper to see what’s on TV?

    The TV Times from my Saturday Gazette goes right into the recycling bin – I don’t even look at it. You can save more paper by not even including it!

    Agree with Bryan. I would prefer putting more resources into straight news and TV/radio criticism by completely dumping the listings. They are about as useless as full stock listings in the internet age.

    As a former TV magazine editor, I have to confess now that I seldom, if ever watch television — the odd hockey game, the odd news program. I spend much of my free time on the Internet — which if far more educational and interactive.

    TV’s days (and nights) are numbered.
