Those of us that experienced TechTV will have fond memories of The Screen Savers show. TWiT brought the series back as The New Screen Savers (TNSS) with many familiar faces from the original series. At the end of the latest episode on Saturday, Leo Laporte dropped the bomb related to this program being eliminated. While there is never a lack of content for viewing on the Internet in general, we feel that this series shouldn’t have ended up on the chopping block. The format and variety of topics covered made technology accessible for a sizable audience. While there are certainly costs associated with developing and presenting content of this nature, the program was well differentiated and didn’t appear to address an oversaturated market. Hopefully, the “new” program coming in 2019 will integrate portions of what was unique to TNSS.
