I expected the fallout from the credit crunch would reduce demand for new housing shows and old shows like “Flip this house” Of course I was wrong and television seems to have adapted to the new market conditions quite well.
I predicted the same demise for reality television 10 years ago as well so I’ll stick to valuation and price trends.
