The television landscape is changing, with more original content coming from web-based platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime. The edgier the series, the more buzz and critical acclaim it seems to get.
However, Phil Rosenthal, the creator of the successful prime time series "Everybody Loves Raymond," told CNBC recently that his sitcom about a middle aged sports writer, probably would not get on the air today as television tries to pull in a younger demographic.
"We barely got on the air then, we would never get on now," Rosenthal told "On The Money" in an interview. He said TV executives are trying to get Americans, most of them in the hot Millenial demographic, to tune in.
"One of the crazy things to me is no matter where you pitch they all want to get younger," Rosenthal said.
