I think it's no secret to anyone, over the past 3 or so years, networks from across the board have seen sharp declines in viewership. While this phenomenon isn't unique to just Children's television, it does seem to be hitting it the worst compared to networks with a wider target demographic (generally Adults). A lot of this can be attributed to more accessibility to content online, such as YouTube and to a degree Netflix, as well as ease of access to digital streaming from mobile to tablet devices compared to years prior. DHX had posted a graph in their earnings report (I believe) which kinda illustrates just how low these drops have become: While these are clearly the average for all the networks combined, it's worth noting that Cartoon Network drops even below this point (ranging from 800K to 1.2M on average for total viewers to most things not Teen Titans Go), but even Nickelodeon is struggling as well to a degree. (Note: I haven't really checked to see how Disney has been doing overall, but from recent memory, Disney XD's ratings have seen a drop as well) Now this brings up an important question: With the ratings clearly dropping and it's probably going to get worse over the next couple of years, what is the next step? Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon have experimented with putting content on Digital services (such as On Demand and Streaming through their app) prior to the Television broadcasts, but I'm not sure if this is a perfect solution. DHX seems to considering and moving forward putting focus on YouTube going forward, which, given how many kids watch content on site, is honestly a smart move (probably even smarter than Netflix at this point, given the site's low renewal rate on kids content). But what about these major networks? Obviously they are running a network and if they focus solely on digital content, it will continue to negatively impact their network. But at the same time, I don't think the audience is really interested in watching live television much any more. From people I've talked to who have kids or nieces/nephews, seems that they really are focusing on watching stuff on YouTube and the like, rather than even watching on TV anymore. And I imagine as the months go on, this trend is going to continue to get bigger and bigger. So I don't know. What do you think can be done? I'm honestly at a loss right now, because I don't think there's any perfect solution to this.
