Are teenagers really watching Chicago Fire? I feel like Game of Thrones is a lot bigger with them.May 22, 2013 at 7:58 pm #277330
Teens don’t care about cable shows unless they’re on ABC Family.May 23, 2013 at 12:10 am #277331
That’s not true.May 23, 2013 at 12:13 am #277332
MTV is a cable channel.
Seems like the more accurate, although still very sweeping generalization, is that cable channels (and the networks, to a lesser extent, excluding CW) are not concerned with marketing toward teenagers and developing programming with them in mind. It’s all about the 18-49.May 23, 2013 at 12:51 am #277333
That’s not true.
Well obviously not all teens, but the ones that voted didn’t branch out much into cable.May 23, 2013 at 9:31 am #277334

“Voted”? What makes you think any teens had anything to do with determining the nominations?
The TCAs are like the Kids Choice Awards and the MTV Music Awards – nominations are determined “behind the curtain”.
There was a time when TCAs worked like this:
1. A group of representatives of the sponsors and Fox got together and chose 10 entries in each category to appear on the online ballot. IIRC, one of the things they considered was how well they thought teens liked each entry.
2. After the online voting ended, the top 4 in each category were considered the “nominees” as announced on the show.
3. The sponsors’ representatives got together again to choose the winners. One of the things considered was, “How likely is it that the nominee will appear at the ceremony?”
However, once Bob Bain took over, they changed – now, it’s:
1. Somehow – they don’t say how, although it might be based in part on a survey – they choose five nominees in each category.
2. After the online voting, the producers may choose any of the top four vote-getters in each category as the winner.
One of these days, an awards show will consist entirely of musical performances, and then, at the end, viewers will be instructed to go to the show’s website to see who won the awards. Oh, wait – that’s how a handful of the Kids Choice Awards (usually things like “favorite book” (although now almost all of the nominess are book series) where none of the authors usually show up) are given out now, isn’t it?
