What happens to Trump when the media gets bored with him?

Leon Wolf at RedState posted the stats below on Trump's primetime media coverage on CNN:

Is it any wonder that he is at the top of the polls?  While most other candidates essentially only get exposure at once monthly debates, CNN has become the Trump channel.  While poor debate performances can seriously harm others, his poor performance last time didn't hurt him because the debate was a small percentage of the number of times people are seeing him.  Hell, CNN mentioned his name 239 times in one 24 hour period in July as documented by this Trumpgasm video:

As Brendan Behan put it, "there is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary" and that definitely seems to be the case here.  But as we know, the media does tire of stories eventually, whether they be missing flights or shark attacks or Lindsay Lohan.  At some point Trump's media coverage will wane and you can bet, so will his support.  Personally, I think people are already starting to get tired of the same old schtick coming from him.  How many times can you listen to someone say, "I will solve X problem because I have the smartest people and all the other candidates are nice but are really losers"?
