Is the writing credit undervalued?

Everybody always gives credit to the actors, and people who are really into movies give a lot of credit to the director, but should we give more of the credit for a good series to the writers?

With a few rare exceptions like Charlie Kaufman, a handful of scifi icons, and writers who are also directors, nobody ever knows who actually wrote the script. But isn't the writer the single greatest influence on the quality of the TV show or film? Not even great actors can make a crappy script work, and a great script can make mediocre actors look brilliant.
