The fate of the last door to door salesmen

That's So Raven
Suite Life of Zack and Cody
Naked Brothers Band
Cory in The House


and pretty much any show produced by Nickelodean/Disney Channel after 2000.

I saw some of these one Saturday morning while staying at my buddy's house when his kids got a hold of the remotes. Man, I knew I watched some stupid stuff as a kid - but the  60-70s era bad sitcom writing, recycled plots, and laughtrack overkill; kiddie "acting"; and the utter and complete stupidity of most if not all adults made me wince. I read an article about the whole maunfactured Zach and Cody hooplah and how they were the next stage of the business empire of behind the Olsen twins, ugh.

Then they got me to sit through about half of an episode of Hanna Montana, that was pretty rough going as well.

It all made me nostalgic for the corny but mild stupidity of Banana Splits reruns.

 
I heard this guy, Douglas Rushkoff, on NPR recently.  He's pretty much the guy who coined the term viral marketing.  He's a bit of a marketing expert and wrote this bad ass book called Coercion about how companies go about deliberately coming up with shady ways to get you to buy their stuff.  Right now, the hot marketing demographic are "tweens", which I think spans 9 to 12 years old.  The apparent strategy is marketing brands heavily to this demographic since they're in such a highly programmable state, mentally.  All of that Nick/Disney Channel stuff is a smaller wheel in a machine that is built specifically to set children on a track where they'll be much more susceptible to heavy branding and marketing all the way through life.  Marketers call it Cradle to the Grave marketing and I think it sucks.  The Olsen Twins were the first demonstration of the effectiveness of that tactic.  Kids who got on that train early had parents who bought them all of their related merchandise right up until coke binges and eating disorders brought them crashing down.

I'm days away from being a father of a little girl and I'm absolutely petrified that she'll be pulled into that scheme as she grows.  I'll ultimately be in control of what she buys, but the media that's directed at kids is so saturated with this sort of stuff that I'll only have so much influence.

Am I getting too heavy?
Naa man. This kinda thing worries a lot of people, even me and I'm not going to be a parent for years. I guess the only thing you can do is change the channel everytime a commercial comes on.

After reading that, if I find out I'm having a kid, I'm throwing the tv out, or getting rid of cable. 

Not just for the reasons mentioned above, but because the shows are horrible to boot.  Eck.

On July 13, the second most watched channel on television was NBC with 4.6 million watchers. And what was the most watched channel? The Disney Channel with 5.1 million watchers. That is the first time that a cable channel has ever beaten out all the network channels as being the most watched channel on television.  And what were these 5.1 million watchers watching, the programs listed, except for the "Naked Brothers Band," which is a Nickelodeon program.

Actually, the  age range of tweens is 9 to 14.

Well, flackbait, if you ever turn to the Disney Channel, then you are going to watch alot of it, as they are a commercial free channel. They may advertise their upcoming programs, but otherwise it's commercial free. Or, at least, it was, the last time I saw it in July of this year.

No, you're not being too strong flackbait. But, to spare the expense of purchasing another television set, just don't turn too that channel.

That's the saddest set of news I've ever heard.  Especially considering the fact that the tv shows on there now could be and probably are written by 6 year olds.  They're horrible.

Last good show Disney Channel produced was Even Stevens.  And that was in 2000.  People are stupid if they watch Disney Channel anymore.

Big Brother would have to win hands down for me.

Here are some others I can't stand:

America's Next Top Model
Grey's Anatomy
Ugly Betty
Desperate Housewives
Survivor

Pretty much any reality show.

Bridezillas. I haven't watched the show but the commercials make want to throw something at the tv. Women acting like complete brats and getting rewarded for it.

The paula dean cooking show. I hate it! She seems so phony to me.
