"Peak TV" is a term used by critics (but coined by John Landgraf circa 2015) to refer to the era we're in where there's so much TV that it's impossible to keep up with it all, even when it's your full time job. Critics and avid TV fans used to be able to watch everything, or at least sample everything, but now that literally can't happen anymore.
"Prestige TV" refers to shows that exist, not because the networks think they'll get big ratings, but because they'll attract award nominations and add to the prestige of the network. Basically the TV version of Oscar bait.
