Re: Have we witnessed the death of intelligent TV?

Do you think people have just become accustomed to a lower standard of television? Some of the clips I've seen on "The Soup" of shows like "Moonshiners", "Duck Dynasty", and "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" are just embarrassingly bad. It makes me wonder: who is being entertained by this? And would people have been entertained by it twenty or thirty years ago? Or would they have been appalled?

Maybe we're becoming desensitized to stupidity.
I doubt that anyone is actively seeking these shows out to watch them. People watch them because they're on and they need background noise.
