    Of course TV is merely a reflection of our society.

    Who is forcing you rubes to watch such torture?

    Its a curse. At work I would constantly mutter stuff like "if Grandpa Munster made it with Alice from Brady Bunch" as we were passing someone causing whomever I was working with to laugh in their face... and then try to play it off like they were laughing at something else.

    At horrific car accident scenes.

    Moonshiners and Gold Rush are the two best shows on Discovery. I also watch the motorcycle stuff sometimes, especially now since they brought Jessie James back.

    The Learning Channel (TLC) plays very little educational programming, mostly reality TV.

    Same for Discovery (the old science/history partner to TLC).

    The Science Channel still plays much science, but nowadays far more Science Fiction Repeats and "How it's made" marathons.

    SyFy Channel plays most horrific not-even-close-to-Sci-Fi B-Horror/Disaster movies and Wizard/Fantasy stuff.

    The Food Network is now "The Reality TV Food Competition with Drama" Channel.

    The Travel Channel is now "The Fat Guys Eating Too Many Sammiches repeat after repeat" channel.

    The History Channel (H and H2) plays a lot less History than it used to, now mostly "special interest" reality TV, i.e. the odd reality TV profession channel.

    Even the Millitary Channel has started losing it's focus, recently playing a lot of war Movies (fine, at least related) and a bunch of non-millitary history stuff.

    Basicly, all the cool Specific Interest, Music, Science, History, etc. channels are doing what MTV did, "broadening their audience" by dumping what their name implies, and going to cheap, low-grade reality TV programming.

    It sucks, frankly. The Reality TV'ing of America is just horrific.

    A few of the list above are still tolerable at times (History, Science and Millitary Channels mostly). Home & Garden (HGTV) is ok if you're into that.
    I'm surprised that it has not be surmised by those with eyes on the slice:

    All this horrific programming is venture capital investors, strong-arming their idiot broadcaster clients (who just want to show movies) into revenue-streamTV

    Don't forget the Weather Channel. I just want the freaking forecast. Instead, they are showing a program about a tornado that demolished a trailer park in Mooresbutt, Arkansas in 1982!!!

    Ugh!!!!
