From tfa: Fourteen of the 17 watches, with an average price of $4,800, sold in the first six hours. Gilt now holds a watch sale every month.

Twenty, even ten years ago, yes. But today's broadcast networks have the smallest share of the viewing public in their history. American Idol and High School Musical 2 are the closest our era has come to there being programming that a large share of America watches (although the second example is dealing with pre-teens, natch).
