I’m not a fan of television. Way too much violence and nonsense.
I regularly watch “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Downton Abby,” the news, “Late Night With David Letterman,” and some of the evening cooking shows. I occasionally tune into “Dr. Phil” and a few shows on Channel 9.
I don’t enjoy watching violent TV shows and “comedies” with loud mouth leads. Reality shows are often a waste of time and some are in bad taste.
I haven’t written about these topics for television because I couldn’t stand to watch all the programs I’d need to sit through to do the analysis.
Monday night, I happened to run across the 66th Emmy Awards, so I listened to it.
What caught my attention was the actors, writers, producers, and show hosts all taking about how wonderful it is to work in the industry and with the others there. Really?
Television is mostly a wasteland. The programs are such low quality. It could be an industry to be proud of with outstanding programming.
The discouraging thing is, I don’t see interest or movement aimed at improving the quality of television in America. Consumers need to demand better programming.
