Is the luster of poker fading?

I was reading an article where the title caught my attention. It was called GSN Ups Ante as Poker Fades read the article there...

Here is the basis for that:

"Travel Channel's "World Poker Tour" was down 17 percent in total viewers watching first-run episodes during its 2005 season, compared with 2004, according to Nielsen Media Research. ESPN's "World Series of Poker" is down 14 percent season to date. CNBC's "Heads Up Poker" tournament is down 18 percent. And among the three iterations of GSN's own "Poker Royale" series, most are similarly down. "

Is it maybe that there are too many damn networks trying to show poker that is the problem? Maybe its simply dillution of the game, and not any specific lack of interest?
