Historians of television will have plenty to ponder over when reviewing 2013. There's the explosion of original scripted series, accompanied by the extensive list of channels attempting them for the first time (Sundance, History, Hallmark, INSP, BYU, OWN, Fuse and so forth). There's the entrance of Netflix, Hulu and Amazon into scripted series (with Xbox coming up) and the revelations that more people consume their entire body of content on TV, not the personal computer, smartphone or tablet. There's the evolution and adoption of smart TV sets, where people can watch or use the Internet and original interactive applications when not watching programs.
