10 ways to fix TV

From Digg: A good article about what the network's need to do in order fix current problems in the television industry. My favorite points:

3. We like complexity.
Definitely. Not only referring to external companions to the shows as the author mentions, but also complexity in the shows themselves. People like to think and be challenged, and I think that's why shows with plots that continually cross each other (24, Lost) are so successful.

10. We want women in strong roles.
Another good point. I feel this is one of the strong points of Battlestar Galactica, a glaring omission from the author's write-up. On this sci-fi show, the women are treated completely equal to men to the point of sharing the same locker rooms and bunks. This balance of gender status is quite refreshing and does make for much more interesting entertainment.
