The Graham Norton Show

Mark Wahlberg's behaviour caused quite a stir, and... yeah, it was distinctly odd. People speculated he was drunk -- considering he began the show going on about how bad it was they offered the guests drink, I'd say it's pretty darn certain that was the problem.

I Think I Invented Netflix, So Where's My Money?
by Stephen Gallagher (from Hauling Like a Brooligan)

with TV... I believe the pirates have set up a genuine model for the future... Broadcast TV is only good for soaps, news and reality now - background stuff... Drama, being immersive in its nature, struggles to thrive in that environment... no one wants to settle in for that long, or focus that much, at a time that doesn't necessarily suit them. There's always going to be an appetite for TV drama, but people have definitely lost their taste for being scheduled.

I had to really chop up a few paragraphs to get the main point across succinctly. But go read the whole thing, it's full of correctitude.
