As a kid, you woke up early on Saturday mornings to catch your favorite cartoon, and family movie night was the highlight of your week. Once upon a time, you and the guys got together to watch the game; you even got hooked on a network series with your significant other. Now, streaming content, mobile apps, and other technologies have kicked TV to the curb. Poor, poor "Lonely TV" - thrown over and left undusted despite its decades of faithful companionship, while you've been fooling around with slicker-looking tech flavors of the month.
