Mr. John Rogers wants to know if you Bit Torrenters would actually pay cash for television shows, and if so, how much. My answer is yes, so long as I wasn't paying for cable on top of it. That seems the future of TV, broadband-delivered entertainment that you decide on, which is a hell of a lot more efficient than the current cable wasteland that my bill gives me the deed to. But despite how good that sounds, I don't see how new programming would break through it. After all, with an endless menu of West Wing, 24, The Daily Show, Sex and the City, and softcore porn The "L" Word to choose from, where would you find the time, and how would you discover, untested shows?

So what's the word, y'all? Would you pay? Or is it Bit Torrent forever?
