We're in the Golden Age of TV. Seriously, the last 15 or so years have been the best and most creative ever because of the rise of cable and subscription channels. Sure broadcast has been mired in a sea of reality shows and groan inducing sitcoms, but there are still some gems hidden amongst the dreck.

I don't know, the only good TV shows I really remember watching around this decade is older cartoon network shows and Doctor Who. You may yell at me for not being very open minded or you can agree with me that most of the good tv shows are not appropriate for younger children, and my sister hangs around the TV during most of the time I do watch tv. In my opinion, the 60's would've been more appropriate to call the Golden age, due to the rise of color television and the rise of popular franchises like star trek and Doctor who.

But television of the 60s was what games went through in the 80s and 90s. They treated it as a diversion more for children than realizing that you can be just as successful if not more so by jettisoning the need to be everything for everyone. Color TV had very little impact on the quality of the shows, much in the same way it didn't have much impact on film. The bigger impact for TV will always be the rise of HBO and cable networks, they don't have to obey corporate masters to the level that standard broadcast networks have to. As such they can pursue an adult audience and don't have to censor themselves or water down complex storylines for the benefit of those with kids. I'd also argue that television has fallen out with children over the age of 6, the fact that cartoon network have jumped to cartoons that show much deeper plots and actively court and older audience shows a lack of audience of kids.

No, but I did fall after realizing what just slid under my foot.
I had no shoes on at the time.
