You don't really hear much about the slow death of canned laughter/live audience-accompanied sitcoms anymore. After all, it is an archaic way of swaying television audiences to react however producers want you to. These days, it seems we don't like to be told how to feel anymore, and the credit probably should go to the internet for giving us the ability to decide what's good and what isn't all by ourselves. With exception of shitty game shows, it's raised a higher bar for quality dramas and sitcoms, and I think that's undisputed.

Consequentially, it's made us more of a solitary kind of people. There's no inclusiveness or community or "event." Hell, you can watch The Event on a DVR. Maybe it has to do with time-shifting. I dunno.

I also think it's weird that we're a generation that can evaluate ourselves in real-time, as opposed to waiting for some historian to decide who we once were. We're so self-aware, but I digress, and, really, there's not much more to that on the surface. I am looking forward to tonight's The Apprentice. Or maybe on Sunday.
