I know! I just don't get it... But maybe, just maybe... that's the point. Something so lame, progressive, and challenges all taboo or doctrines that are the make up of the classic 'American' conservative(yes, I brought politics into this one), that it empowers or strengthens any ideology that opposes this. It's as some might say... 'nauseating'(not to steal words, but I can honestly say I don't remember ever in my life writing that word lol, thought I'd give it a shot)

I'm not going to get all conspiratorial on this one, but it's my belief that the context, plots, and story lines on a majority of networks are being guided to steer the observers bias. Good or bad, meh... there's a yin and yang to everything. My gut feeling is that the result will be good, yet a part of me is weary of the tactics.

Yeah, tell me about it...

Although I'm still fairly young(25), I feel like I'm 3 generations removed from the present day people between the ages of 20-30. Having said that... I'm increasingly surprised day to day with the morals and ethics emerging from those who are younger than me.

Maybe in 20-30 years we'll have shows like The Rifleman, and Hogan's Heroes back, maybe(fingers crossed).

Had to be MacGyver. I cannot believe that show ran as long as it did.
I did enjoy the SNL skits of it though, now that was funny right there.


and present times, has to be the reality shows. I agree wholeheartedly with others on that.

.. and all the other shows that focus on money, glamor, and materialism.

(gluttony or the obesity epidemic in the case of man vs food)
I quite agree never have watched any of those programs.

There was a show back in 1965, starring Jerry Van Dyke (brother of Dick Van Dyke), called "My Mother The Car" that has been refered to over the years as the worst TV show of all time. The premise was Jerry's character buys a used car that calls his name in his dead mother's voice and low and behold the car turns out to be the reincarnation of his dead mother who speaks to him through the car radio.
So that's where Knight Rider got the idea. And you can add that one to the list too.


Seconded

Hee Haw... I'm no fan of country music...
But I love Hee Haw...

What is bad are these shows

*I just want my pants back
*Skins
*Jersey Shore
*Glee
*The Kardashians
*The Real World

And any other degenerate morally corrupt show on the air...

Take these two shows for example...
*I Just Want My Pants Back

After a one night stand leaves him with a pair of his jeans stolen, Jason Strider begins his quest through New York City, to get his beloved jeans back

Synopsis taken from above link...


*Skins

The show has been criticized for its "racy" teenage depictions of casual sex and drug use, especially in regard to underage actors.[18] In the wake of a mounting scandal over a possible child pornography investigation of MTV as a result of the show's raciness



But MTV did cancel the show... but with a positive spin on why they chose to cancel the how



On June 9, 2011, MTV announced that they would not renew Skins for a second season, with a statement that "Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn't connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped"

The external text/references were taken from the above link



Is this what we need for examples for our teenagers...
Show them Slutty, Promiscuous, Douche Bag, drugged out behavior as an "Entertainment" standard...

That is healthy for a developing mind...

I'm glad I dont have kids yet! the filth that is mainstream is sickening!

Its due to such junk on the tube that I dont watch it very much...

When I do its typically "How its made" or modern marvels of Ancient Aliens or aka Dude with awesome hair
haha

Going back to Hee Haw...
At least it was clean and morally sound...
You could comfortably watch this with your family...
Try doing that with the current top rating shows...

Its sad our so called entertainment that seeks out our youth is Slut 101 and Douchebag 101



Grandpa Jones where are you when you need you the most!!!

Basically everything on TV these days is terrible. Except Like House, Beavis and Butthead, Simspons, Family Guy is ok, king of the Hill is hilarious everything else is pretty crappy

You are forcing me to admit to being a hypocrite. I agree that Glee has to be the worst ever with absolutely no redeeming value whatsoever,

However.........................

The one and only episode I have seen was the one with the Rocky Horror music. My wife and I both really enjoyed the music, we just fast forward through everything else.

Not to imply, of course, that the original music wasn't great as well!!

Everybody loves Raymond... Couldn't stand his nasally P whooped show.

For stuff like 'Glee', I like to think that I just had the good sense to never watch.
A multitude of TLC shows - Toddlers and Tiaras, Jon and Kate Plus 8, and the other shows that had a million children in it...:

Agreed you looked at the show in a way I never thought of, I don't think there's a show on the air not that's morally sound and clean. No wonder the kids are so messed up today.

Mister Roger's Neighborhood. I hated that show even when I was a kid; the man had that calm, monotone sort of voice that made my skin crawl.

Everything that MTV has produced in the past 10 years barring Ren and Stimpy and Beavis and Butthead.

I have a hard time calculating what MTV is doing trying to dramatize the life and times of pregnant teens or teenaged parent, while throwing debauchery and just pure filth with the Jersey Shore.

My 26 year old fiance just LOVES Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant. It makes me want to jump off a bridge!

And to top it off, its all fake anyway. Keeping collecting that money, Viacom, while ruining America's youth in the process.
