It might be if you are an American. Good career choice otherwise. Poker is booming elsewhere, especially in Europe.
In the UK, a new TV channel launched recently which is dedicated solely to coverage of "The Sky Open" which is a nightly online poker tournament. They screen it live every night, then run repeats around the clock until the next tourney starts the following night.
It`s a cr*p tournament, unfortunately. The blinds go up ridiculously fast in order to generate maximum action for the TV audience. Still, the fact that it is a viable venture at all shows the level of interest in poker.
(BTW, if you are in the UK and you are interested, take a look at skypoker
.com, or channel 846.)
