Disappearing Televisions; No Tony for Harry

0503 radcliffe • Today's sign that old media is dead and the whole world is turning into a George Saunders short story: Nielsen reported that the percentage of Americans who own a television has dropped for the first time in 20 years. The New York Times reports on the apocalypse.

• According to something called the Australian, one third of the budget for the upcoming James Bond film will come from product placement. Perhaps instead of a Hugo Boss suit, Daniel Craig will wear one of those NASCAR get-ups.

• The Tony Award nominations were released today. Back Stage's own Davis Sheward calls the snubbing of Daniel Radcliffe (aka the Boy Who Lived) the biggest news to come out of the announcement.

The Wrap notes that "Bones" actor David Boreanaz tweeted that his show had been renewed before Fox made the official announcement. Non-disclosure agreement, anyone?
