Hey have you guys seen anything good on TV?
I mean anything that doesn't involve 40+ year-old house wives cheating with random 20 something-year-old strangers
Something that doesn't involve the subject of teenage pregnancy and somehow making it attractive instead of a warning to teens
Something that doesn't involve gratuitous sex scenes that are now abundant on regular TV instead of exclusively in movies
Movie: Bob Carol Ted and Alice
Something that doesn't involve verbally abusive dance teachers or pushy pageant moms
Something that doesn't involve drunk 20+ something-year-olds that think that the only thing in life that makes you worthy of love is how one looks...and of course the most expensive handbag.
Something that doesn't involve a "Blushing Bride" pushing, cursing, slapping, and trantruming to get her way.
No table flippin'
No young woman or men humiliating themselves to get attention

I saw that there was a new show about the New York Art world.
It would be centered around a group of young women trying to break into the Art scene. They intern and work at various art galleries and there are even a group of them who manage to open a gallery as well.

where were the artists?
For that matter where was the art? It was pushed aside like some abandoned Hollywood backdrop.
another reality show with the same old formula.
They spoon feed us, and we (like hungry babies) gladly swallow it and ask for more....UGH.
I'm no angel. There have been shows that have grabbed me and held me in their reality show nonsense. It started with The Real World way back when
Then again when Survivor first appeared on the scene in 2000
The housewives of New York was my Achilles heel later on
But I quit.
I wonder what would happen if we all just turned off the TV. How much money would be lost if every TV turned off for one day, one night, even one hour. Would anything change then?
After all the dumbing down of shows...
would we all have some sort of awakening?
Would we get up and look around and realize all the time wasted?
I mean think about this....If someone came up to you and pointed to a pile of garbage and said
"Here, that's all there is. Look at this over and over again."
Would you do it?
Haven't we done it?
I know I have.
So I have turned away, picked up the remote, and pressed....
