The five major media companies that produce 90% of the content on TV get 60% of their revenue from CATV and SATV subscriptions. Since numerous studies and surveys show that the average customer only watches about 12 of the hundreds of channels that are force bundled on them it would seem that not only to consumers want commercials to go away they'd like the vast majority of the shows they interrupt to go away as well.
Shows SHOULD get made the same way music, movies, plays and just about every other product gets made... you come up with a concept, you produce it and then offer it for sale to the public. If they like and want it they give you money for it. If you don't you try another won. If they don't like those consider another career.
Not really very complicated.
