The NFL is getting to be like baseball was in the 50's and 60's, with a lot of teams moving around. (But it's been a while since the NFL added any new franchises.)

Want faster games? Just drop the NFL and watch the NHL instead. Hardly any time outs, and the players do line changes on the fly.

I wish there were more music shows on TV, as long as the songs aren't angst filled relationship musings a la Alanis Morissette.

I rarely watch anything involving crime or cops or action. Bring on the shows with no weaponry, no special effects, and lots of leisurely dialogue.
