ABSTRACT
The author discusses the debate over the quality of modern television programming, noting that well-reviewed programs are increasing produced by cable television networks or online streaming channels such as Netflix and Amazon instead of the traditional commercial networks. He argues that there are fewer high-quality television programs available now than in the early 2000s, and that they face competition from an increasing number of low budget, lower quality, and niche programming.
