As Twitter, Facebook and apps like Zeebox continue to drive attention to TV Shows, they paradoxically kill off TV Advertising. If you are a company looking to advertise would you advertise on the TV during the show’s ad break or on the iPad, smart device during the ad break? TV becomes the loss leader to the 2nd screen apps, as television stations hand over their audiences to 3rd parties.
