If by "television" you mean, "the 4 networks that actually have more than one decent program on it, plus the two pay networks, plus the streaming and on-demand services that you can technically use on a television" then yes, I'd agree. Otherwise, no there's just more channels now with the decent programming all spread across a million different channels

Network TV is littered with derivative crime drama's (they are all a mix between CSI, Law and Order and NYPD Blue at this point) and horrendously unfunny 3 camera sit-coms (Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men alone may have set back the concept of humor as we know it a good 15 years). Cable is so bloated with reality TV (and the O'Reilly Factor) that it's exhausting to sift through all of the chaff in order to find the few bits of wheat that are worth consuming. My TV watching habits have veered more and more towards alternative mediums because those are the only places one can regularly expect to be presented with something decent.
That's a bit of cherry picking, if I could be so bold.
Honestly, I feel the rate of good TV shows is outshining the amount of good films these days; at least I've noticed myself enjoying them more than films (sorry if that's not counting that there are, in fact, probably more shows in production than film, but still). You also picked some of the easiest targets for a "TV sucks" argument, titles that have indeed been known for being exhaustive.
Still think this Zelda thing has potential if it's even true. I think it could very well be. After all, Nintendo has been lending out their properties a little bit more than usual lately.
Good or bad, I'm CRAZY curious.
