True, Indian TV hasn't had anything to offer since Mahabharat and Chanakya...sadly. Mahabharat and Chanakya were true masterpieces in terms of acting and story telling, even though the technology wasn't that good back then.
They used to make good historicals back in the day but the ones they make now look like Saas-Bahu soaps with the dramatic music and all that nonsense. I saw a few episodes of Prithviraj and it didn't interest me at all, all the background music and Bollywoodesque love stories were just irritating.
If you ask me, almost all serials these days are a re-hash of one TV serial - Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. They just take parts of that saga and slightly modify it to create a new TV serial.
This is why I only stick with one reality show i.e. BB. Mehmaannawazi also caught my interest. As far as other reality shows, most of them are dance/music centered and its overdone at this point. Every channel seems to have its own indian idol or saregaama. I can't even tell anymore.
