We NEVER watch broadcast TV. I don't know why the programming is so bad, whether it's the writers, the producers who invent the paradigm or the sponsors. It might be nice to revisit some of the old programs like Mary Tyler Moore, Gunsmoke. and others. If you get MeTV over the air many of these programs are shown there. The problem the networks will have is that these programs took up much more of the half-hour or hour than programs do today and commercial time would be reduced if they were shown in their original format. I guess technology could fix that. And as far a movies are concerned, dialog is almost non existent, it's just gun fights, car chases and unrealistic CGI; maybe that's cheaper than writing dialog for a good story or writers and others involved in making movies have no imagination.
