But that doesnt diminish the amazing quality of shows in television. The "bad" television doesnt mean that theres not a lot of great tv, the OPs point
I never said it did, I was answering someone else's question.
Listen, the article the OP posted has a picture of the show "Elementary" in it as an example of a show the writer would like to revisit, but can't because he doesn't have time. If you're all talking about shows on the same level as Elementary, then yeah, it's impossible to keep up with everything "good" on TV. Just because more networks are making original programming doesn't mean there is more great original programming. There aren't a ton of Mad Men's or Breaking Bad's or Homeland's.
If anything, the increase in the production of original programming is forcing everyone to step up their game. For example, I think Workaholics is great. So much so that I kind of knock The League or It's Always Sunny down a few pegs. Eventually, I'll probably stop watching those shows all together because there's better
TV out there.
