Has the majority of television gone stale?
I scroll through the hundreds of channels I have on my TV on a nightly basis and it is just a blur of repeated topics. There are at least 10 shows all dedicated to Alaska airing right now. 5 shows dedicated to pawn shops, 4 or 5 shows on swap people and logging, 5 Housewives shows on Bravo, etc. We're basically watching people do their jobs with some drama added that really is just drama the producers created by using cuts and some intense audio.
Is there a point where reality shows will finally flame out or are they here to stay?
Don't get me wrong, there are some fantastic television shows airing - probably some of the best writing and drama in the history of TV, in my opinion of course (Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, etc...) However, these are just hour blocks to replace the garbage that fills 90% of the rest of the channels.
I watch more Netflix than anything else - has anyone else come to the realization that most TV sucks right now?
