It is interesting to think that, if we continue to move increasingly towards cable and then internet as a means of distributing content, eventually phasing out the antenna broadcasts that leak our shows into space, some show currently on, if it continues long enough, might be the last TV show aliens pick up.
Imagine if you are monitoring signals from a far-away planet. You see an episode of “Dancing With The Stars” (in its 32nd season) and then suddenly nothing. Would you be secretly relieved? Would you assume that the show led to the downfall of our civilization? Or would you send out a space mission to investigate (with the aim that they subscribe your planet to earth TV if humanity turns out to still be around)?
