Nobody has said that is has no value beyond entertainment. You're putting words in people's mouths again.

It's a TV show. It's main purpose is to provide entertainment and make money. But it can also explore science and morality and the human condition. You do get that it's possible to have both, right?
If it's possible to have both, then how is its main purpose to provide entertainment?
Because the people in charge wouldn't make it if they didn't think it would be profitable. The same is true of every TV show.
Profit can be had with much less effort and financial sacrifice. Day time talk shows entertain people.
