    And no one would sell crack if people didn't really want crack. Doesn't make the bussiness ethical. Maybe the comparisons unfair, but we should know by now that humans are really susceptable to marketing, scantily clad hussies, bad tv and nut shots etc... So people that make tv programs have a choice: make something profitable to the human race, or make something profitable for themselves.

    Yeah and maybe McDonald's can remove everything from their menu that is unhealthy. Then they can go out of business all in the name of the greater moral good. All good just so long as its not you who has to make the sacrifice.

    Or even better, they can learn to efficiently make quality programs. I don't know anything about the industry, but it seems like they should be able to put projects together without huge budgets. Or maybe it's needed...anyone in industry who can comment?

    Well, according to Wikipedia, the SciFi original movie Dinoshark cost 2 million to make.

    You can't really blame the BBC for being forced to chase viewing figures. Blame Rupert Murdoch and The Daily Mail.

    Wait! There's a show with moneys playing tennis? What's wrong with that?

    This kind of disturbing stuff has drawn in mass audiences since before the first TV signal was ever beamed.

    The circus freak show is always a hit, only now it's Honey Boo Boo instead of Fish Boy and the Bearded Lady.

    I think Hank Green sums up why TV serves no purpose quite well:
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
