The article considers television programming and television programs in broadcast and cable television. A trend is considered in which networks and cable television networks are not as quick to cancel programs which have low ratings but have been well reviewed by television critics or won Emmy Awards. The trend is attributed to the impact of new forms of television broadcasting such as video on demand which can allow such a program to grow its audience over time.
