Here's some news that has broader implications for genre TV and TV as a whole. The beginning of the end for ad-supported TV? (AKA, Firefly's revenge.) Aereo or no aereo, the writing is on the wall. Ad-supported TV is losing its struggle to compete with cable and streaming, which have the advantage of subscription revenues and the luxury of catering to niche tastes. Firefly was the future, ya dopes! Maybe he's just crying and bluffing now, but this isn't the end of the story.
