Think about it: How many times does the average American actually get up an walk to the TV to change the channel? There's their target audience (pardon the pun). If it doens't involve point-and-click, is it really worth the effort? For that matter, how many average couch potatoes would be able to do the job properly if it involved gross motor skills (LARPers and Walking Dead fans, aside, of course.)
What should really scare us is when they start making personal weapons shaped like X-Box controllers: A-A-X-B-click-click-downlever and that's the last time you'll ever hide the remote from me! Talk about population control--not only will we cut the population of people who, well, move, but the remaining won't have the interest or energy to breed, especially if the next upgrade to HALO comes out anytime soon after.
Hey, remember the personal phasers in Star Trek?
TVs and X-box in every home--and a laptop with mandatory Facebook. I'm sure there's a study somewhere showing a link between reposting images captions over photos of cats or sunsets and a reduction in the propensity to exert effort on physical mayhem.
Write your congressman! No, better yet: Google for a form letter to e-sign. Less work that way.
