The mere existence of this headline–“CBS says ratings success proves network TV viable“–is proof that the clock is ticking on the model, at least in its current form. Imagine such a headline running 10, 20, 40 or 50 years ago.

Of course, the viable lifespan of the original big three is likely to exceed a far older component of the legacy media.
