Let Us All Bask In Television's Warm Glowing Warming Glow

I appreciate the sentiment, but let's consider the source here for a moment and its enormous lack of self-awareness. Why is the man in the above photo texting from the bow of his expensive sailboat when he could been sitting at home watching a television network known for helping people idle away the hours by watching such culturally-enriching fair as Charlie's Angels, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Battle of the Network Stars, Family Matters (with Steve Urkel), Monday Night Football, and NYPD Blue.
To its credit, ABC in its heyday sure was a lot less judgmental about its viewers when Fred Silverman was running the show.
