Today's TV seems to be overloaded with little else but mindless trash that reflects the term "idiot box" pretty well IMO. There's far far too many reality TV shows, inane game shows and brutally unfunny but terribly offensive comedy series. Honestly it's come to the point where I hardly bother at all anymore with new series and instead watch the classics from yesteryear.

One other show that I THOUGHT was cancelled but should be is Americas Funniest Home Videos.  Does anyone even watch this show?  It's like Jackass for the G rated group.  Who wants to watch random people with kids and pets doing "wacky" stunts on video for money?

I'll add to the dogpile on reality shows, one of the main reasons I don't watch much TV now. Certainly affected my decision to ditch cable.

Any "fat slob/hot wife with smartass kids" sitcom. Never was a good idea, most of them suck, and the trend is played out.

The various CSI, Medium and Law & Order spinoffs and clones. We get it copy what works, 'til it doesn't. At least Raines was a clever flip flop of the "talk to the dead" show, too bad it didn't stand a chance.

Celebrity/celebritante psuedo-entertainment news shows. Press releases, advertising and gossip dressed up as information. Also Pat O'Brian is annoying and a sleazy creep.

Judge/court shows except maybe Judge Joe Brown. The rest are awful and stupid. Judge Judy is an egomaniac who couldn't stop talking if her life depended on it.

The whole CW network. Do even stupid vain self-absorbed good-looking teenagers watch One Tree Hill? If only to say "I could be on that show!"

Ozzymandias speaks: Let's go back in time several years. I have discovered the original Gunsmoke episodes on DVD. The half hour black and white shows are so much better than the color episodes that are rerun all the time.

Supposedly, Gunsmoke was cancelled several times, but the president of CBS would get upset about it. Finally the main cast said they wouldn't do the show anymore.

At least it should have been cancelled before it went to color.

Ozzymandias has spoken!!!

"The Biggest Loser": Let's make a TV show about losing weight, so people that are looking to learn something about weight loss have to, , sit, , and watch the show, , , and what they learn , , is the 'quick results' type of weight loss that is LEAST likely to work long-term. I doubt many people that aren't overweight have interest in this show, but I could be wrong.

America's Top Model: Let's call this "skinny arrogant kids treating others like crap". I can't stand that show, such shallow, worthless people for the most part. I saw once there were 3 of the models toasting "Being young, rich, and sexy". So they were so shallow as to toast THEMSELVES for being young (as if they're the first peopel to ever be young), rich (so they are TOASTING their being 'lucky enough to be born to well-off parents), and sexy (something that also took little effort on their part). They should name the show "Women you will see on INTERVENTION in a decade or so when they realize the world only wants to exploit them while they are young and drops them like a rock once that goes, since there's no intelect, personality, or skill to replace it with"

My Sweet Sixteen on MTV.  I'm hoping they may have cancelled it by now. Disgustingly spoiled rich kids who go out of their way to suck many pennys out of their daddy's botomless pockets for their one "special" day where they can pretend to be celebrities with their snotty annoying friends.

Good one Darksider, I had blocked that one out. Every time I see that show, I get to a point where I think "Just one hand grenade in the right place, at the right time could do so much good for the world".

How does that show stay on the air?  Especially now, with youtube being the home for stupid videos.  If there is any evidence that you can sell your soul to the devil for success, I think that might be the prime example. 

As for My Sweet Sixteen  I have only seen one episode because the kid was the son of my older brother's companies' senior partners (or something like that) It was the first time I was really opernly worried about the gerenations that will be growing up soon.
