What is on TV to entertain young Americans who now owe $824,000 each as their share of the National Debt?
Jersey Shore: The series follows the exploits of eight dim-witted housemates who curse, fight, drink, have sex, and get arrested at their summer home along the quiet, pristine beaches of New Jersey, right off the turnpike. I understand this show has been cancelled. Too bad.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: This show follows the promising career of a six-year old child from Georgia participating in beauty pageants, while her family is paid $50,000 per episode. Child exploitation? Not at all. Our kids can always watch Toddlers and Tiaras, but Boo Boo raises the cultural bar and motivates our teens.
Wife Swap: This is one of the best. Who wouldn’t want to swap a wife for a chance to experience a different, even lower social class? And what wife would pass up the opportunity to become the swapee? It teaches young people, (those in the 20 percentile that have heard of marriage), the value of a strong, healthy marital relationship, where the wife is only temporarily traded, for better or for worse.
All My Babies’ Mamas: Shawty-Lo is an apathetic father of 11 children with 10 unwed mothers vying for sex and child support. Could this be even more demeaning than Amos ‘n’ Andy? I wouldn’t let my child watch this show if I were green.
Buckwild: Here is a show designed to give kids ideas that will help them land jobs. The series follows the lives of nine young West Virginia adults, who love small-town American rural life. With episodes like "F. the Neighborhood," why would any parent be concerned with children watching too much TV? Almost Heaven, West Virginia.
Jackass: The high school kids love this one, especially the ones who can’t read the book. Let’s face it. Dangerous, crude, stupid pranks and stunts are funny. It tends to help dropouts with their self-esteem problems.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians: In a recent poll of young Americans, the Kardashian sisters took three of the top five spots when teens were asked who the best role models were for young women today. Publicity-stunt marriages, phony fights, rear-end enhancements, and more keep millions of young people returning every week.
Hurl: This show features eating competitions, where contestants eat as many pounds of sushi and fast food as their stomachs can handle, and then participate in extreme sports while trying not to vomit. This is hilarious. Maybe Hollywood could create an even more hilarious show called Anorexia.
Temptation Island: In this show that demonstrates to the world the new moral culture in the U.S.A. , scantily clad couples visit a tropical island. The men are then separated from the women, while sexy tempters and temptresses try to entice them to cheat on their mates. Will they take the bait? Apparently. The divorce rate in this country for couples under 25 who bother to marry is astronomical. To a guy like me, who insisted that my son treat your daughter like I would expect your son to treat my daughter, this show has no redeeming social value. But you’re right. That’s only my opinion, and like everybody, like has the like right, to like think, like whatever they want. That’s like what makes like America like free like.
Had enough? I have. Sorry for the sarcasm and negativity, but even I cannot make something positive out of this crap.
