Let's not discount TV-movies too much. I can think of plenty of TV-movies that are better remembered than a lot of now-forgotten feature films.
Oh, certainly. And now that feature film distribution is becoming more expensive and difficult, the distinction between "TV movies" and "feature films" is pretty blurred.

And, when you consider international distribution, things become even fuzzier. Behind the Candelabra was a TV movie stateside; overseas, it had a theatrical release. The same thing happened to Spielberg's Duel in the '70s. (Except, in the former case, the movie originated as a feature; in the latter case, it originated as a TV movie.)
