The insanity of tv.

I happen to have on Maury Povich's show. How can all these women not know who the father of their children are? Why go on a public platform and admit that you slept around and than surprise your partner that little Susie might not be your daughter. I don't think that is for public consumption. We are now a world filled with reality tv. No wonder why so many screenwriters and tv writers are out of work. They can find some whacky family and follow them around with cameras and call it a "show". This shit sells magazines and makes the news. It is a sign of the times. I believe some things in this world are sacred and private. It is getting ridiculous. The only tv I seem to watch these days are A&E and the Discovery Channel. I like alot of the series of HBO and Showtime. I am starting to think the days of the sitcom are dead and gone. Just like many other things. All in the family are to busy with their blackberries to have Happy Days. Peace.

Only a few shows I will watch and that includes (surprise?) the Food channel things. Always interesting to learn, the rest?
Mostly Garbage.

Whitemist- I totally agree.

HGTV has some pretty funny shit and Food Network has some useful shit. But give me the never ending battles of WWII on the History Channel and I am alright.

WM- I love the Planet Earth series on the Discovery Channel. I do have a weakness for crime shows. I just found out that I missed Stephen Kings book singing last week. He was in town about two blocks from my house. Shit.
