Broadcasting is "scheduled" entertainment, not as convenient but it affords a common viewing experience. We have lost that nationwide sharing that broadcasting creates with its limitations. 
Looking forward to a favorite cartoon every Saturday morning felt like a "mini-Christmas" to me and I loved gathering with my friends later in the day to talk about what we all saw at the same time, yet each in our own homes.
Now that its all gone . . . when will the guys who made it all happen come forward and explain why it all went away?

Yes, yes, yes!!! This! This is what I miss most about broadcast only television. Just the feeling that, as you watch your favorite shows, you know that millions of others are also watching along with you. Everyone is discovering the new adventure together. Just that idea sitting in the back of your mind as you watched made the show all the more special.

And it's been my lifelong belief that since broadcasting moves at the pace of a calendar it makes those special moments all the more special.

Take this scene from Xiaolin Showdown. Dudes - I laughed so hard I had to run out to the balcony just as my neighbors, Maryland and Steve did the same. Then the guy above me fell off the sofa, still laughing. Never missed an episode after that!
