As networks announce their schedules, what’s your take on the state of TV?

NBC walking away from comedy seems to be akin to biting the hand that not only feeds them, but also what has worked so well in the past. America needs more laughter right now….heh… heh…… – Variety subscriber


My complaint may fall on deaf ears, but the inane game and reality competition shows are a total turnoff. I can’t imagine wasting my time watching them, though I know they have their fans. But I wonder about that popularity. It’s really catering to the lowest common denominator. Is that going to pay dividends in the long run? – Variety subscriber


Entirely too many spin-offs! This has got to stop! – Variety subscriber
