The same thing has happened with drama, there is very little individual comment allowed from writers.

It's filtered through TV executives who are very risk averse.

Yes, "reach" is a very deliberately miss-named concept. It seems to imply that viewers have been emotionaly moved by a programme when in fact they may have absolutely hated a programme.
