These Days the Best Stuff is on TV

NPR on the best stuff being on TV, not in the movies:

Critics have been decrying the creative decline of Hollywood pretty much since D.W. Griffith left the scene.

But today's Hollywood is plenty creative, author Edward Jay Epstein says. It's just that the most sophisticated stuff is showing up on TV screens.

"We've had a role reversal," Epstein tells NPR's Guy Raz. "Now, people go to television, especially pay television and premiere cable television, to watch programs like Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire and Damages. And they go to movies to see comic books: Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Avatar."
