    How much does E! TV Represent the TRUE America?

    I actually was flippin' from one channel to the next and saw E! Channel. I was horrified!

    <----- ME

    Keeping Up with the Kardashians
    Kendra
    Fashion Police
    and some show with some kind of talent agency with gay owners treating their bitchy female, shallow, stuck up, deep as a puddle employees like crap.
    PLUS... E! News

    Dear Lord, it was everything I would NOT want to be around.

    How clearly (if at all) does E! represent the real American youth? Or just America in general?

    It doesn't represent anything that we as a people do on a daily basis. However, it does reflect the leisure viewing habits of this country....which is somewhat tragic. Perhaps it is also for some reason really marketed towards girls and women, but I could be completely unfair in my assessment.

    Why people give a **** about the people in shows like these is beyond me...

This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams

    Think of it this way though. If the worse thing that can happen to someone on these shows is a mental breakdown because someone didn't show up for their fundraiser or that the store didn't carry the right kind of purse, you can feel so much better about your own life. Being in contact with my family and their tv habits makes me enjoy life that much more because of whatever E! decides to have on.

    Re: How much does E! TV Represent the TRUE America?

    Reality TV is popular mostly because it is cheap. Even if it gets crappy ratings, it costs nothing to produce so it can still turn a profit. TV is a very passive experience, so people will watch pretty much whatever the networks push to them. People would eagerly watch higher-quality shows if they were on, but they have an unfortunate tendency to get canceled.

    98% of TV is pretty much garbage at this point. The shows on E just prove that being in the entertainment industry isnt as cracked up to be as some thing.

    It's not real, it's all scripted. People watch it because they get to watch and laugh at other people's fake and/or exaggerated troubles, TV networks make it because it's cheap.

    It's all pathetic.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
