    They’re tracking the demographics of everything, thanks to marketers desperate for the Holy Grail, the wallet of the 18-35 single white middle-class male.

    Actually, they’re starting to realize a whole lot of other folks are spending money on going to the movies. For instance, Latinos proportionally spend much more on going to the movies than do non-Latino whites. And the smart marketers in other industries know just who their various target demographics are. (Not too many white middle-class males buying L’Oréal, for instance.)

    The other key issue (besides what’s already been discussed) that this strip brings up is Nellie Andreeva’s article about how "diversity in television casting is ‘too much of a good thing.’”

    It is marketing that almost every now show has to cast from each of these classes; whites, blacks, browns, gays, straights, religious nut, mixed marriages, blended marriages, aethist, right-winger, left-winger, but not necessarily a politician/Narcissist.


    What’s interesting is that Lear may have started it with having a nemisis for Archie Bunker.
