Is there a TV show that you find mindless, pointless and without merit? What show would you like to see leave the airways for good...and why?

I would have to say Family Guy or American Dad. Both are cartoons that are shown on Fox around 8 or 9 pm on Sunday nights. I think it's offensive and the language they use is absoultely horrible. I don't think it's appropriate for cartoon characters to swear and make lewd jokes, it gives the wrong impression to children who are allowed to watch it. Although I don't know why any parent would let their child watch something that offensive.

I disagree, biwasaki, because everyone knows that although these shows are in a cartoon format, they definitely not for the kiddies. I like both shows very well. They appeal to my sense of humor. I especially love Stewie on The Family Guy. Any cartoon show that airs in prime time(unless specified for children) should automatically be considered not for kids. Most little kids are either in bed by that hour or should be on their way to bed.

Yes, most of the "younger kids" are in bed by that hour. But what about the 9, 10, 11, and 12 year olds that are up watching that show?

I don't think I could possibly narrow it down to just one. I have a hard time finding something intelligent to watch at any given time of the day and we have over 200 channels. On my shortlist would be Dr Phil, anything with Rachael Ray, all those mind-numbing entertainment shows like Access Hollywood etc., and just about every sitcom on the air right now. If it wasn't for sports, movies, Heroes, and Ghost Hunters I would probably rip my dish off the side of the house.

Spongebob! I find him very negative and really kind of creepy looking. I could cheerfully banish that strange little face from the universe! Naturally my 5 year old thinks he's cool, but I'm sure he'll get over it.

but I'm sure he'll get over it. LOL, that is what I was saying three years ago about my now 8 year old. Don't be surprised if his affection grows stronger.

hee hee... it wouldn't surprise me since both me and my husband are both adamant about no spongebob! Hopefully not, though.

Not sure, I think it's called Age Of Love. The premise is that a young fellow gets to choose between women his own age, and older women. This is SO stupid, and how demeaning to older women watching them compete for affection?! I only caught a little bit of it, enough to know I didn't like it. Everything I've read about it too seems like it's just so wrong. I really hate almost all of those reality shows, competing on a physical ability level is one thing (or there would be no sports on tv at all), but competing for affections and emotions seems too way over the top and just not right or fair. Maybe it's just me, but I still think it's unnecessary and degrading!

There's a show on Nick that kids like called the Naked Brothers Band, but I swear the producers are on something. It is the weirdest show, and makes me wonder about the sanity of the people creating it. It really makes no sense to me. After watching one episode you're just kind of left dumbstruck..like what was that?

South Park would be the top show on my list as I don't think that it is a show that kids should see. I have a lot of other shows that I am not fond of,but that is the one that I would take off the air first.

There are several shows that I can't stand, and think that the world would be better off without. I personally would like to see them gone, although I would settle for them being moved to a more appropriate time of day when even the older children are in bed. I don't think that ALL children should be banned from watching television after 9:00 just so that they can put inappropriate programming on so early. I think that these types of shows should be scheduled for later on if they must be broadcast.

Do you have to ask?...lol. All of them would be fine with me. Especially on the major networks. There are a few cable channels that are worth viewing once in a while. My favorite continues to be the Weather Channel. No fluff or huff and puff, just honest, down home, straight to the point weather in all its magnificence and fury.

I think 90% of the TV shows are pointless and without merit. Hardly one can find some usful and knowledgable programe on TV now a days. I am not much of a TV person. Because of these usless programes I am losing interests in watching Tv.

There are so many, crazynurse, but I will do my best to narrow it down to one, LOL. Beauty and the Geek has no redeeming social value whatsoever. What could they be thinking? How's this for synchronicity? Just as I was typing this, I swear, their commercial just came on the air. Don't you just love it?LOL

There is one show in my local tv called Mango. It is a gambling show. People supposed to send as many sms as they can, answering ridiculously easy questions and trying to win some cash money or some products. I find this show is wasting our money because at the end of the day, only one or two winners are selected. The others who participate will get nothing.

All reality shows got to go because I do not think that they are that fun to watch whatsoever.
