Anyone paying attention to TV these days is most likely doing it on a laptop. Streaming sites like Netflix and Amazon are home to some of the best original content, while the major networks seem to care less and less about challenging their audiences to think.
This trend was reflected in the 11 honorees of the 75th Peabody Awards, announced this morning. Netflix was the “network” with the most honored shows, with three of its productions making the list: Jessica Jones, Master of None and the feature-length Beasts of No Nation.
ABC was the only one of the “big three” networks to make a mark, landing a Peabody for its program Black-ish. Other honorees include Amazon’s Transparent, USA’s Mr. Robot, HBO’s The Leftovers, Lifetime’s UnREAL, SundanceTV’s Deutschland 83, PBS’ Wolf Hall and Cbeebies’ children’s series Katie Morag.
