OK, what about the S&P 500 or the Russell 2000 or the Wilshire 5000?  Very similar beatings as the DJIA, fairly high correlation to the DJIA, and reflecting much broader market share.  I'd agree that the Dow per se doesn't hold a huge amount of interest for me as companies go, but as a market barometer it still carries a huge amount of relevenat information (though my preference is the S&P500 for the US).
