For me TV shows have become more challenging as I've gotten older. The commitment that comes with a sustained narrative feels like a job after a while no matter how much I'm enjoying myself and I rarely keep up with one beyond the second or third season - which in turn discourages me from starting another show since I know I probably won't complete it, and so on.
Films are no problem, especially in a theater - I'll give my absolute focus for however long it is (and some of the Marvel films were real patience-testers) since I know that I never have to watch it again if it sucks.
EDIT: I will say that sometimes I know I just didn't "get" a movie or just wasn't in the mood for it and I will rewatch those at some point even if I didn't enjoy them. Some of my favorite films (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Big Lebowski) have only come from a second watch months or years later. Albums can be like this as well.
