Connections: Are sitcoms dying?

Mar 27, 2018

Are sitcoms dying? As TV habits continue to change, viewers are moving further away from appointment viewing and the days of “Must-See TV.” But with the return of shows like Will & Grace, Roseanne, and others, could the sitcom be making a comeback? Or is the format back, but are we watching it in different ways?

We discuss the future of TV viewing with our guests:
