How Many Viewers On Hit Chinese TV Shows?

The satirical web site The Onion draws attention to China's enormous population with an article about a Chinese TV show that failed since it had only 180 million viewers.

BEIJINGóHijinx Of The Masses, a Chinese sitcom about 16 twentysomethings who live above a tea shop, was canceled Monday after the series premiere was only able to draw a disappointing 180 million viewers.

I was recently watching a real lecture by a UC Berkeley prof of mechanical engineering and he mentioned that China now has more commercial building space than the United States. China is rapidly growing past the US by many measures and will continue to do so by many other measures.

The question is whether the US is sufficiently flexible to adapt to the emerging reality? The US political system is a bit too rigid to allow the necessary changes - especially because the people have been indoctrinated with propaganda that blocks any self-reflection.

I like this Onion article "Chinese Factory Worker Can't Believe The Shit He Makes For Americans".

For every consumer there's a supplier.
