Reality shows are cheap to produce. With the increase in options for viewers, revenue opportunities have declined due to dilution. The current philosophy of the entertainment industry leans left, which typically means that like unions and crony capitalists, the industry spends its effort and energy stifling and removing competition as opposed to just producing better programming to attract more viewers ie may the best win.

There are many barriers to entry in the entertainment business as mergers consolidate under large companies like Comcast and time warner...these institutions further lobby and work to produce legislation to protect their position...crony capitalism at its finest!

The movie industry is horrible...I thing the last movie I went to see because I was interested was "saving private ryan". Competition elevates quality, productivity and enjoyment for the majority and our systems in place in our current mode of government work to reduce competition and protect the positions of big companies and the politicians who gain favors, press and money from these institutions.

The entertainment business is in really terrible shape and the only way I see to change that is deregulate and break up the big monopolies. Imagine in our computer world, if I could buy channels from a menu? Or all programs be pay per view? I watch about 10 channels regularly depending...why cant I pay for those 10 and ignore the rest? You know the answer...because it is illegal...how did it become illegal? Laws passed by politicians at the direction of lobbiest efforts from the likes of Comcast and time warner. Funding of public television with tax dollars is another good example of the corruption....tax money is money seized from the citizens of this country and should treated preciously and spent wisely...of course it is always easy to spend other people's money on stupid things that you would never spend your own money on.

My rant is over...have a great day!

And that's worst part about sex on TV... it works! I clicked on that link before I even thought about it.

I do find myself finding all the sex on TV to be more and more offensive. That simply isn't the place for it. Some eye candy is nice once in a while but there is more to quality programing than sex appeal. I also can't help but to think it isn't healthy for all of us to be constantly bombarded with sex on TV.

Its a multi billion dollar industry, the executives believe we are the stupid gullible sheep that will gobble up their stupid tripe, that we will drop to our knees and thank them for it.
I pulled the cable plug 7 years ago, I bring a book to read when traveling
