Watching television.

Executives from the major television networks came to New York City this week to promote their shows for the fall in what's known as the upfront. The networks hold big, swanky presentations and exclusive parties to lure advertisers, who are expected to spend billions of dollars on these shows — even as ratings are falling and users are increasingly turning to streaming services like Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix. 

This week on Money Talking, Host Charlie Herman talks with John Koblin of The New York Times and Joe Adalian, with New York Magazine's Vulture.com, on whether ratings matter, as well as how network TV is changing.
