So,if you had the oppertunity to ban just one thing from TV,what would it be?

My answer is rather predictable but thats only because I hate them sooooo damn much.The answer,of course,is ADVERTS!

There are many,many things i hate about them but the 2 biggest things are;they go on for ever and ever,and every channel has them on at the same time.

Just one thing?

Drats ... Only one.

Which would it be ... Waltons Mountain or Little House on the Prairie?

Both shows are so sickening sweet that they have to be evil to the core!

Any thing with a Jew in it. Why? Just to see what would happen. Would we have any shows left? From writers, producers, directors, and actors would there be any thing left? Since they do control Hollywood... For a good reason! Before acting was a glamorus(spelling?) job it was a dirty looked down upon profession. One of the very few jobs a Jew could get. So when it went from a dirty horrible thing too a popular business, who had the experience and the heritage in acting? The Jews! Anyways, I would love for Television too stop for like, a week, with a week long Jew ban just to see what would happen.

Just goes to show you that even when the chips are down.
Some people, rather than blame their position on others,
they can take it, run with it, and turn it into something wildly magnificent.
Quite the success story if you ask me.

Me? I would ban bass fishing shows.

I've thought about it,and because both those programs suck in a major way,you can ban 'em both.


I'm always up for the controversial things in life.
And to answer your question,that would indeed leave very little on


Ooooh,thats a good choice.


Just bass fishing programs,or all fishing programs?

Just bass fishing
Usually it's just a front to sell some sort of magic minnow fishing lure.

I love the deep sea fishing shows, and the more exotic location fishing.
Like up the Amazon.

I would ban nothing as the reduction in personal freedoms censorship entails bothers me.

My vote goes to teletabloids.

If you want gossip about celebrities go to a dang news stand. Teletabloids are the worst thing to ever hit the airwaves. They are even worse than if you combined Jerry Springer and Jeraldo Revera into a show.

I hate "reality" shows. They are the downfall of good TV. I also think there are way too many talk shows and court/judge shows out there. Instead of banning them, I just turn the tube off.

Anything original...

Oh, wait, they've done that already...hmm, let me think on this a little.

*theme from jeopardy playing softly in the background*

ESPN...yep. It's become all about them, and not the sports they're supposed to cover...

Plain and simple. I'm tired of seeing their sick disgusting filth everywhere I look!

Which queers?

Queers,as in people who are a bit kooky?

Queers,as in people who have a strange or odd conventional viewpoint?

Queers,as in those who feel unwell?

Queers,as in those who put a person in a hopeless or disadvantageous situation as to success?

Queers,as in people who behave suspiciously?

They literally do control Hollywood and there wouldn't be hardly anything to watch.

Enjoyed your post. Starred.

MTV. Hands down, MTV.

There's lots of trash on TV, but MTV makes me want to punch my television.

The news.

Basically the news is no longer just about reporting stuff that has happened...they sensationalise everything and make it sound worse than it really is. Its all about fear and control.

I am not saying that we should not be aware of what goes on in the world (or just stick our heads in the sand) but just remember that the tv news is like any other program. Its content is decided by ratings because the better the ratings the higher they can charge for advertising spaces.

And also remember that a population in fear is easier to control.

Thats my two cents worth anyway.

and fox news

As a few people have said: Reality Shows - I despise those.

I also do not like the court-tv shows, Judge Judy? Come on.... No thank you. Jerry Springer? Go sit with Judy on the Chopping Block.

Oh and what are those damn antique shows....the ones where people bring in their teapots and angel figureens(sp?) and try and find out how much they're worth? HOW do they get funding? (Aside from being the non-wallstreet type stock market...?)

I despise: Hanna Montana. I despise the "Stars! They live just like us" Reality shows more then i hate regular reality shows (like survivor...ick).

Ban anything that glorifies or objectifies the petty and superficial lives of fashion models or trophy whores- er, wives of over-payed and overrated athletes.
