The boob tube...catering to the masses..

does anyone ever wonder why they watch the stuff they watch on tv? some of the stuff is like a car crash..its nasty, depressing and sometimes down right gross...but we sit and watch it anyway..sorta like passing a gruesome accident..everybody looks over at it..dont lie..you know you look..anyways..it just occured to me that i very seldom watch series tv..only one i can think of right now is "24" which ends tonite..i usually watch sports or the reporting of sports aka espn...its never a repeat and you never know the outcome..plus you don't have to pay attention if you dont want to..you can listen and get the 411..reality shows for the most part offer voyeurism at its best..and there are more and more of these suckers on all the time..i used to watch "Survivor" but it seems so phony and fixed now...the fox channel seems to thrive on this kinda crapola..and i guess people watch it or it wouldnt be on for long..right? the ones that have a touch of humor I can handle..queer eye for the straight guy isnt too bad..and for the record..i never saw a fucking episode of "Raymond" that dufus mofo did nothing for me..and i couldnt figure out why his wife who seemed fairly intelligent would put up w/him and his relatives..oh..i do like the "west wing"..and probably because it had left wing tendancies..i am not too proud to admit that..the summertime now gives me the ability to see any episodes I missed and hopefully they will put some decent filler shows on..but i dont hold my breath on that...i would rather read other peoples blogs than watch most of the mindless shit they spoon feed us nowadays..

7 people gave us their .02 cents:

People are mindless bottom feeding cattle + reality tv is free to produce compared to the other shows = crap all over television

TV takes me away from the dulldrums of my daily life. Sometimes it's great to know others have it worse, and then to see something to attain.

I love CSI. And yes, I admit, when my Husband is not watching, I'll put on those cosmetic make-over shows.

I do, however, know exactly how much more stuff I can fill the hours with without the TV on at all. It's a real eye opener.

one good thing about TV is that last night, I saw johnny "i'm a hot long haired ballplayer in tight pants" damon, sign boston rob's painting in the premier of rob and amber get married.

i don't even have cable.
