Companies and Channels Promoting the Filth on Television

I don’t really watch TV that much (when I do, it’s reruns of movies or things like that.) Indeed, after Star Wars the Clone Wars stopped airing, I pretty much stopped watching TV. (Note: I will watch Duck Dynasty if I come across it when others are watching it.)

Indeed, of my family, I’d say I watch TV, at least actual TV, the least. This is ironic as all of my family went to a Christian university and I went to a state university and yet I seem to be ahead of them. (Granted, Marley and Me and the sexual content in that was a REAL wake up call to me years ago, as I’d been dulled to the increasingly worse programming. However, looking bad, I can see that the children’s programming is even getting worse: either more pointless or more politically correct (not that there’s much of a difference these days!) and that they often would put in vulgar stuff, but, on the other hand, were too afraid things might scare kids to go out on a limb and try programming like in the Disney Golden Age again.

And, of course, TV is mostly political correctness, as if we didn’t get enough of that from “schools” and politicians already!!!!

In my experience, Cartoon Network seems (at least during the daytime; Adult Swim at night is a whole different beast.) one of the cleanest ones, though it no doubt has its share of pointless cartoons. Ironically enough, one of the worst ones I’ve heard of, not that I’d know for sure as I barely watch TV, is the so-called ABC Family. While once great, it has gone really seedy.1 2

A show, on CBS I think, that is really popular but SHOULDN’T be is NCIS. This might shock you, but look at some of the facts about it.3 4 5 6
