Well that and - as you seem to imply there - cable TV movies. I remember HBO's Game Change, a movie about Sarah Palin no doubt designed to counter the dearth of Sarah Palin on television, was aired on Sky Atlantic a couple of months back.
Except that the "TV movies" that appear on non-premium cable channels are usually just repackaged direct-to-DVD movies. [...] But it would be nice if commercial television, either network or cable (and is that even a meaningful distinction anymore?), still made original TV movies,
Actually Game Change was an original TV movie, and that is something HBO still does.
