Reality Shows: The Decline of 21st Century America

I expect that will someday be a chapter in a history book.

When will the phenomena of reality shows go away? I really dislike them. MTV no longer shows music videos or music anything (unless it’s hip-hop videos in the middle of the night). Even Cartoon Network and SyFy have started showing reality shows instead of cartoons and Science Fiction, respectively. Also, I’m tired of cooking shows and television series where there’s some big secret that’s never explained. “Lost”, “The Event”… I mean seriously? Does no one know how to write a story anymore? They have beginnings, middles and ends, folks! Another annoying trend… how Hollywood is just doing remake after remake and the remakes suck.

It seems the entertainment industry is out of ideas (bringing in new blood threatens the “good old boy’s club) and as my husband says, “There’s a new genre of music called ‘Suck'”.  The IQ of the average American is under 100. I think we’re witnessing the fall of Western Civilization.  ::sigh::

Either that or I’m just getting old and curmudgeon -y.
