Way too much TV, and little of it, no doubt, must-see bingeworthy

487 Original Programs Aired in 2017. Bet You Didn’t Watch Them All.  (The New York Times, 1/10/2018)
The staggering growth largely comes from the seemingly endless budget lines that help produce new shows for streaming services. Netflix, for example, has said it will spend a $8 billion on content this year.

Three of my favorite TV shows of all time debuted in fall of 1955.  You can call me old-fashioned, because indeed I am when it comes to TV.  (I wasn't there at the creation, as we didn't become a TV household until late 1956.)
