I don't agree. I think that both Hodge & I were referring to quality, not style.
And I don't think that a network show can't be excellent quality.
They just haven't been up to the level of some cable shows as of late.
However, West Wing was on network and is still IMHO the best show that's ever aired.
Also (more recently) The Good Wife for it's first 5 seasons was consistently one of the best shows on TV.
