I mean this is entirely subjective. There’s not really a definitive answer. That said, I will try and be as objective as possible.In terms of comedy, I would argue no, it’s as strong as it’s always been. 30 years ago Blackadder was still going strong, though this is the edge of the timeframe, it still fits. Fast forward for shows like Red Dwarf, Peep Show, Little Britain, The Mighty Boosh, Inbetweeners, Plebs.You should really check out Plebs, especially if you were into The Inbetweeners?Panel shows are, in my opinion, in their prime and have been since the early 2000s. 8 out of 10 Cats, QI, Would I lie to you, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Mock the Week.No one beats the quick-witted Lee Mack, or the Middle Class ranting David Mitchell. No one.Documentaries are often spearheaded by the BBC and they have produced some greats, such as anything with Sir David Attenborough as well as hundreds of fascinating cultural and historical documentaries (if you can’t tell by my credits, that’s a particular favourite of mine).This man is a National Treasure. That fact is pretty much the only thing this country can agree on?Then you’ve got Dramas and similar genres including the likes of a modern Doctor Who (like it or not, during the Tennant/Smith era it was pulling huge ratings and the stories were considered by most to be high quality and unique). I would put Top Gear in this category as well, and we all know how popular that was. Eastenders and all its like-minded shows are still going and although they’re not my cup of tea, people seem to be enjoying them still. Then you’ve got newer shows like Downtown Abby and Poldark.Say what you want about Series 8–10, but Capaldi was absolutely brilliant? As was his sense of Fashion?These thirty years also gave birth to the Reality TV genre and things like the Great British Bake off, Big Brother and Bargain Hunt are all completely unique takes on the genre, like it or not (personally, I do not…).Those of us who hate this show can breathe a sigh of relief if the rumours are to be believed?Children’s TV is still evolving but I wouldn’t say it’s gotten worse. Blue Peter’s kept going strong all these years. There’s plenty of animated and clay animated shows that aim to both educate and entertain. There are also educational shows with a twist, such as Horrible Histories or various Wildlife programs with an emphasis on danger. Then you’ve got pre-teen/teen dramas and comedies that all try to be as individual and unique as possible.This show was perfectly Britsih, perfectly childish, and perfectly historical. Everything a little me wanted?Sports and News are perhaps the only genres that haven’t continued to evolve. Though I guess, how could they? That said, if you include Olympics opening ceremonies and the occasional quips from news anchors, perhaps they both still have some uniqueness to be credited to them? I’ll leave these two down to your judgment, as they’re not quite as black and white as the other genres.Even though it wasn’t actually her majesty the Queen, I can’t say I can foresee the Royal Family ever doing anything that’s more spectthan this?Finally, there are gameshows which really came to be in the 70s/80s but have gone strong all these years. Crystal Maze, The Apprentice, Countdown, Robot Wars, Masterchef and Total Wipeout. All of these shows are a vastly unique take on the genre and many require specific skills, such as the like of Robot Wars where you need to be able to build a small robot from scratch to fight others.A bunch of grown men and women competing and embarrassing themselves for our amusement. You know what? Maybe I can’t fault the Romans for Gladiatorial combat after all…As you can see, there’s something for everyone. I don’t like all of the genres on here and I suspect that’s the case for most people, but in each genre I do like, there are plenty of shows for me to enjoy, and I’d say the same for every genre. I think the only way you can objectively judge TV is based on its uniqueness and while there are plenty of shows that copy other’s formulas, in each genre you have new and interesting takes and ways of doing things.Keep doing whatever it is you’re all doing guys. Don’t let your viewers down anytime soon, please?
