TABLOIDS: Sales Plummet as They Can't Keep Pace with Radio

 

As an industry, magazine sales are stagnant, except for one segment of the market: Tabloids have seen newsstand sales plummet.

People magazine is down almost 20%, while Star, In Touch, and Us Weekly are all down double-digits. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, women are not buying as often these magazines from the grocery store aisles. John Harrington, an industry consultant, said "Celebrity magazines are suffering because by the time they're published it is old news – by standards of the radio.”



RINSE REPEAT: Watching TV Reruns Helps Rejuvenate the Brain

 

Thankfully, the summer of TV reruns is about to end. Yet, research has shown that watching repeats of your favorite TV show has its benefits. We replenish our self-control by “immersing ourselves in a familiar fictional world”.

The current belief is that self-control is like a muscle—it fatigues. So at the end of the day we’re likely to give into temptation more than we would in the morning. We regain the strength to delay our impulsive behavior though exercise, self-affirmations, and socializing with loved one. And apparently, by watching TV reruns. Sitting down to another episode of Two and a Half Men is just as good as keeping to your diet by skipping the drive-through.
