RIP Leonard Nimoy

News

The man known for his iconic character Mr. Spock on "Star Trek," has died at age 83. I had the pleasure of meeting him once and it is safe to say that for many of his fans, Leonard Nimoy was Star Trek. Live long and prosper, dear friend.

Nimoy was a singer, a writer, a poet, a photographer, a film director and a great guy.

Announcement
Images: 

There is a perception that with the rise of social media, mobile devices, and other digital trends, young people have put TV on mute.

According to Nielsen, young people are watching less TV. The 18-24 group watched a weekly average of 22 hours and 32 minutes of traditional TV, which is about 1 hour and 45 minutes less than in 2011. That’s about 15 minutes less a day. The difference in monthly viewing time for this group is about 1 and a half hours, or 13 minutes a day.
