Like Most Photos You Take–that now get ‘looked at less than once simply because there is almost zero cost and effort to producing one’–There Are Too Many Good TV Shows To Watch Them All, Says N.Y. Times Columnist

Sep 7, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Have we come to the point that there is just too much good TV available that we can’t watch it all? Media columnist David Carr of the New York Times thinks we may have.

In this week’s column, published Monday, he writes, "The media world today is less the paradox of choice than the inundation by options." Later in his essay he adds, "Our ability to produce media has outstripped our ability to consume it."

Carr’s piece is our pick for the most provocative article of the day. You can read it in its entirety if you click here.


  1. Even w/ 2 DVR’s I’ve found this to be true. In our motor home we have east/west coast feeds, and still can’t keep up.

  2. Totally agree. Show production skills have reached a point (though a bit formulaic) where too many shows are at least acceptable to watch (and still there is great stuff being produced). My 1TB DVR is full and I rarely watch anything. My best solution is to download entire series years later and “catch up” on the iPad in bed.

  3. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.. 🙂

  4. Extremely wonderful site!

  5. I like this data presented and it has given me some sort of inspiration to have success for some reason, so thanks.
