If you could wipe out one tv show off the face of the Earth. What would it be?

I'm going Kardasians followed closely by Colin Cowturd. TMZ would be a definite choice. My kids know to turn that BS off when I walk in the door.

    The Kard-Assians have mastered the insipid art of being famous for nothing. Turns out the Jenner girl outdid them all. It's shocking she's close to a billionaire already.

    The Kardashian's and everything on Bravo! There's so much garbage on TV it would take a day to list all the shows.

    Last night I finished watching Ricky Gervais' latest project called "After Life". I thought it was dark and depressing, but also brilliant with laugh out loud moments. Hap & Leonard is also pretty good, as is Jack Tayler - both on Netflix.

    The first, last and only ''reality'' tv program I followed was the first season of Survivor, which must have been close to 20 years ago, I don't worry about it though, just don't watch and it's as if it doesn't exist,. Well The Kard-Assians are impossible to completely shut out unless you just completely tune out media.

    The View. Just political trash disguised as social humor. Kardashians would be a close second. Funny that we all are saying the same two.

    On the flip side, Narcos was a good program and They Shall Not Grow Old was a great documentary movie about WWI.

    I'd never stop anyone from making a dollar. It just won't be one of mine.

    tfk_fanboy. NEVER limit news, better to limit government than citizen's access to info.

    I agree we have a problem, but the root of the problem is ignorance, apathy and just plain wrong headedness. That is what feeds the bottom dwellers of the media world. Alex Jones would be out of business without the idiots who feed him.

    What ever happened to the original person famous for being famous - Paris Hilton. She must be getting up in years now.

    She's fallen off the radar. Which can only mean we're due for another "leaked" home porn video any time now.

    We managed to survive for thousands of years without 24 hour news. I'd venture to guess we could do without today. That said, it's here to stay, along with instant event analysis via Twitter, Instagram and other Social Media platforms.

    Great question. Of current shows I’d echo the Kartrashians and the “Real” housewives of wherever. I’ve never watched 5 secs of KUWTK but it astounds me that these whorish, uber-materialistic, painfully out of touch dilettantes have legions of fans and are rich for being shills to the highest bidder. I wonder if we’d have so many like Aunt Becky’s spoiled brat “influencer” if not for these “ladies” giving the template on how to make money for nothing and making girls think that putting on makeup or being attractive are good life/career skills.

    The Real Housewives are just very badly named. “Should be named Golddiggers, Divorcees, Groupies, and/or overall Horrible People Acting Horribly Who Happen To Have a Kid and Live in a Particular Place Currently” and I’d have less of a problem with it.

    The Atlanta one is just laughable and made me dislike a former Falcons player who married one of the old battle axes who’s at least 20 years older than him(Kroy Bierman). I’m not saying Actual Atlanta Housewives are great unless you enjoy watching the competition as to who can get hubby to spend the most on an impractical luxury SUV to tote their kids around, but at least that’s real lol. “Think that BMW SUV would look great at soccer practice? Wait til you see the racing inspired M series version! You need that extra horsepower to cut people off in the carpool lane!”. Lol.

    I DO think that some non reality shows should be included as they are the obvious and deserved whipping boys. But I’m honestly hard pressed to think of one that comes close to being as bad. I will say that I’m NOT a superhero/comic book guy so I’m not likely to see any of the Marvel movies, but I’m definitely not going to watch TV shows from the universe.
