With so many new shows each year, I have trouble deciding what to watch. My time is limited so I can't watch even a few minutes of every one of them. I have to go by the previews, reviews, and advice of friends. By the time I find one I want to watch, they've cancelled it or keep moving it around on the schedule making it hard to find. The premium channels seem to do a better job of promoting and scheduling, and most of the better shows lately have been on them.
My solution is to just wait and catch a whole series on Netflix or Amazon Prime. It may be a year or more after the series has ended, but if it's good, I don't care.
Oh, and while there may be a ton of new shows, there are only a few good one. Most are pure crap.
