    I wholeheartedly agree.

    Re: Saw this on Reddit

    I couldn't pick a Kardashian out of a line up. Never seen the show, and damn proud of it.

    Also proud that:

    I've never heard "In the Navy" by Village People all the way through. I've always been able to change the station.

    Never danced either the chicken dance or the bunny hop.

    Never been to Wrigley Field


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    I watched Glee once because I heard it was so good. They were wrong.

    I never realized the evil guys from Star Trek got their own show.

    Re: Saw this on Reddit

    Fact is, its easier to build an audience on a meaningless show that people can jump into and out of at anytime. Easier to get a million viewers a week by having a pool of 5mil that kinda watch but can tune in and out whenever they want, than to get a million and hold them there when its hard to jump back in if they miss an episode (much less try to jump into the series in the 2nd season on when they're clueless without going back and starting from the beginning). This, along with it being much cheaper to produce reality tv, is why there's so much crap on the air. The best writing and storytelling (especially with long story arcs) is a lot harder to keep up numbers.

    I'm sure they cost the same to produce. Pay a couple guys to follow around rich women, or pay multiple movie stars to be on a tv sitcom.
    Edit: what alarson said
