Splitsider, my go-to comedy blog, indirectly shows how fragmented our viewing habits are.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a show I’ve been anticipating for a while. It’s from Tina Fey (good), it’s about a women who leaves a cult and tries to make it in the real world (unique, promising) and stars Ellie Kemper (OK, I’m in).
But the show won’t debut on NBC as planned. It’s going to be on Netflix.
Splitsider casts this as good news.
For people who’ve cut the cord from cable and do all their viewing online, I suppose it is. But what about those of us who like comedy and sports? We can’t cut that cord. And we’re getting a little annoyed that we have to subscribe to something ELSE to watch comedy.
In my day, it was all on something called “TV.” And we LIKED it!
