There are some good shows, but overall TV today is definately inferior to what it was years ago. I sound like some old guy complaining about the kids today
No, it's less to your tastes
. Yes, there is
Well, I guess you're right. I don't think every TV show I don't watch is bad, a lot of it is just not for me. That said, nowadays there are shows like Hardcore Pawn, Toddlers and Tiaras, etc that are just horrible, and because of that I would say that in some ways TV today is inferior, and not just because of my tastes (not that there weren't horrible shows back then), but your general point is probably right.
