YES YES YES and another YES.
The major networks produce awful garbage and call it tv, they get away with this because the vast majority of people in this country are fucking idiots. But there are some shows networks that actually put work into making shows that do not suckle at the awful tit of stupidity that is reality programming. HBO, FX, AMC and a couple others continue to put effort into shows that are not only watchable but also intelligent. Shows such as Justified, The Americans, and HBOs Game Of Thrones show that TV networks are still capable of producing shows that don't make me want to stick my hand into the blender just to feel something less painful than American Idol.
