Advertisements Do you still watch new network shows? I got sick of getting in to something and then having the rug pulled out when the network decided the ratings weren’t good enough. So I either stopped recording network shows completely or if I do record one I wait until the full season has run before I watch to ensure it made the cut. I like the way that streaming services commit to a full season, even if it's not renewed forma second. At the very least you get to see the story arc of the first season play out. Networks are notorious for cutting shows mid season and not even filming the remainder, so there is no way to even watch the rest of the season. That just feels like a waste of time given how much other content is out there now from cable and streaming services. This season I didn’t even set up any of the new shows. None looked interesting enough to bother with. But if one does get a lot of buzz I'll pick it up somewhere before next season.
