This would be a sad wasteland.
I'm sure sports fans would still enjoy it. Think of broadcast as just one segment of the future entertainment picture, like a sushi restaurant. Maybe you hate sushi and never go there. Doesn't mean there aren't other restaurants for you to go to, or that some people don't like sushi.
I already ignore broadcast until whatever is worth watching makes its way to netflix, which is few enough now, so if broadcast simply stops producing anything worthwhile, I won't mind.
