To borrow from the title of a high-profile new NBC sitcom that few people have heard of and even fewer have watched, I feel bad. Also sad. Maybe mad. I have complained about other fall seasons, but this one is somehow worse. Most of the new shows simply are not good – at best they are nothing special -- and while I know this isn’t true across the board, it’s as if the networks just don’t care. Many very important people appear to be confused and incapable of making smart choices. Repeat after me, broadcast TV: Disconnect bad. Disruption good. Disruption, as it happens, is currently one of the most overused terms in the media industry. But it is not without value.
