I'll be impressed when a computer invents a hit tv show.

You sure that hasn't happened yet? After all, you said "hit" -- "quality" is demonstrably not a requirement.

Pretty sure. Considering how hard it was just to get a computer program to win Jeopardy, it's very unlikely that there's a program which can invent promising tv show at a level above "[Implausible pairing], they fight crime!".

Also, it may be about as hard to come up with a hit tv show as it is to come up with a show which is generally acclaimed as being of high quality. My impression is that there are about equal numbers of them.
