Goodby "Good Morning America"

We all know that the internet has been taking traditional TV audiences and shrinking the profitablility of TV. Here is another story about this trend that may change the way we wake-up to media. This week the LA Times had a story on the way this trend is effecting morning shows, whose demographic is made up of mothers.

It's difficult to trace the exact cause of the drop. It comes after two popular morning hosts, Katie Couric and Charles Gibson, left their shows to be evening news anchors. At the same time, the advent of "mommy blogs," the growing popularity of online news sites and the ever-more-frantic press of daily life appear to have led many women to forgo the morning ritual of watching TV.
