Has anyone ever noticed how certain TV stations, in a desperate attempt to remain popular end up destroying themsleves in the process because they keep putting junk on their stations? Here are some personal examples:
MTV: the big one, probably one of the first stations to start this ridiculous phase of diverting what they were for. It used to be that MTV (and of course VH1 as well) was all about music; music vids, mics interviews, concerts, etc. Then over time reality shows and other trivial nonsense began to fester and soon MTV was a husk of its former self; it has become a mindless drivel of unintelligent reality and popularity shows that represent a decadent culture of waste and sensationalism. Why though? Whatever happened to a channel dedicated to music?
Cartoon Network: to say that nothing good remains on this channel would be a lie, as there are still new and hilarious progrmas (like Adventure Time and Flap Jack). But it is nothing like what it used to be in the 90's; shows that involve real people, the absence of Toonami, and awful shows (like Total Drama Island) are more present then ever, it's kinda sad.
History Channel: This. This channel is probably, after MTV (although with the direction it's headed in it will probably become worse soon enough), one of the worst offenders of network decay. There used to be a time where if you wanted un-baised facts on anything in history you got it. Now it spews piles of garbage about aliens, supernatural crap, and theoretical conspiricies about historical figures. I'm not sure whether I should vomit or cry.
Every News Station: relaible objective information concerning world events? Not anymore, that's not popular with little minded sheeple, now it's sensationalist bull-☺☺☺☺. No, thats it, anyone who watches the news needs no explanation on the matter.
Animal Planet: there was some show about ghost stories and whether a bison or a rhino would win in a fight, oh forget it.
Does anyone else have any examples that they are willing to share and is there any way to save TV before every network decays into filth?
