I was thinking about this the other day. In the fifties, the networks offered up many great live, anthology dramas with Playhouse 90, Kraft Television Theatre, Westinghouse Studio One, Armstrong Circle Theatre and many others. The Golden Age of Television. In the sixties the anthologies had died out but then we got the age of the great socially relevant shows like The Defenders, East Side West Side, Slattery's People, Mr. Novak and others of that ilk. The seventies and eighties brought the great miniseries, starting with QBVII and continuing with Rich Man Poor Man, Roots, Holocaust, Centennial, Winds of War, War and Remembrance and dozens of other great and long adaptations of novels. While there was always a majority of pap to go along with the important stuff it seems now that the networks have thrown in the towel and given up. They don't even program Saturday night anymore. What do they actually put on the air now that can be considered noteworthy? I'm not talking about entertainment value, although that can be debated as well, but I'm talking about programming that is significant and thoughtful. Or have they just stopped trying to make anything of any importance and just said the hell with it, if the morons in the audience want bug eating, we'll give them bug eating.
