On “This Week in Google,” Leo Laporte realizes live on the air, that more people are watching people play games on Twitch.tv than tuning in to the crap shows on his own network.
At 5:30 p.m. EST Aug. 27, 2014 there were 260 live viewers of TWiG and nearly 127,000 live viewers watching one gamer on Twitch playing “League of Legends.”
“What was I thinking? Talking about intellectual stuff?” said Leo. “Nobody wants that!”
Welcome to the new world, Leo. A brave new world where the new media is getting supplanted by even newer media. Now get back to your old, boring shows and hawk some stupid mattresses.
