Facebook monitors what you're watching
Episode Description 
Starting this Fall, Facebook will begin tracking how its subscribers watch television content on mobile devices.

So if it’s not Millennials who are keeping the market pretty stagnant, where is the shortfall coming from? Evidence shows that is the middle-aged who are letting the market down.
