    Headline should be: TV is Eating Us Alive.

    Check out Jerry Mander’s “Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television” (published in 1978) and/or the crime statistics for Bhutan after they plugged in televisions in 1999 (http://www.theguardian.com/theguardian/2003/jun/14/weekend7.weekend2).

    It isn’t what you watch – it is the act of watching.

      You wouldn’t be saying that if you were a duck decoy manufacturer or a ghost hunter(or a restaurant/bar owner, tattoo artist, beautician, pawn shop owner, motorcycle builder or any of the other trades they “feature on these stupid slanders they call reality).

        my “reality” is far more interesting than any TV show
        and almost all the really good parts
        can’t be shown on TV or cable or seen in that reality
        butt if I had a 925 job & had to be/act mr. normal
        I’d lap that shit up like it was heroin

        • I doubt most people could handle that kind of reality. Nor want to. It’s easier to live vicariously.

  3. Perhaps seeing the trainwrecks on the the set can make a person feel a bit better about themselves?
