Organization of page[edit]

I liked the page better when It wasn't subcategorized by network, and was primarily chronological(debuts & list of shows). Maybe its just me, but its easier for me to follow a chronological flow, rather than organizing everything by Network. The subcategories become a little ridiculous- the cable networks/Cube have one entry each- is this really necessary? While the network a show is on is important, creating all these subcategories breaks up the linear progression of the page. For example, Its now much harder to see which shows were running the longest because you have to jump back and forth between all the different network sections. Sorry if I'm not explaining this as clearly as possible, but this is one vote for going back to the old way and putting the network the show is on to the right of the show...

I hear you, and maybe one of these days I (or someone else) will do a sortable wikitable, that can be sorted by year or network. --Musdan77 (talk) 04:01, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
