Youth Oriented

The target age of our youth oriented culture gets lower all the time. Thirty was the cutoff point in the Sixties. In the Nineties it was still about twenty-somethings (Seinfeld, Friends), and getting younger all the time and now in the past decade it's gone down to teens - Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games. Do you think it will eventually come to rest at some barely pubescent age? That's Nostrathomas' prediction. Oversimplified, sure, but not entirely wrong.
