    Maybe the problem is just the opposite - maybe there should be warnings on the very happy shows indicating to viewers that the program might give them unrealistic expectations about their own life, if taken to be a realistic representation of life for a majority of human beings.

    Truly.
    Perhaps less TV in one's life is in order?

    We used to watch tv to escape the real world.

    One day realism began to creep in, then smut, because shows were deemed too violent so they had to keep audiences interested.

    The lines between real and fantasy on tv have been at least blurred but erased in many cases.

    When I was a kid you rooted for the good guy and hissed at the bad guy. Gunsmoke for example. Now days they have you cheering for mobsters and doubting the good guys. American Gangster, and Narcos for examples.

    There are also more inspirational and happy shows readily available than most people can watch in a lifetime, with more being made all the time.

    Choose wisely what you allow in your head. We started by banning all TV news in the house. Has worked well for the last 35 years.

    Agreed mr islander. It's been about 20 years since I unplugged.

    I get my news from radio or from coworkers. Yesterday I tried to read a USA today sports section but every article was an adgenda by the author and I couldn't make it through the first paragraph.
    Some days I listen to music and no radio at all if I feel my attitude trying to slide downhill. I figure if we're being invaded somebody at work will let me know.

    Regarding tv, heck I went about 5 years at one point without even plugging it in at one house I lived in.

    Hobbies. Crafts. Projects. Even when I lived in an apartment I did not watch cable tv (before streaming).

    Our two sons (19 and 21) haven't watched TV for about ten years. When they did their viewing was strictly limited. Today they couldn't care less about TV and movies. The age of telivision is coming to an end. The internet rules the future.

    My kids donít watch tv except for conan and an occasional movie. I just watch the amazing world of gumball since thatís usually the only thing that amuses me in the limited time Iím home. Donít even know why Iím paying for cable tv when all we use is internet service.

    Iíve gradually walked away from tv to the point that I just donít watch it anymore. I really cannot name one regular series that is on right now. Occasionally, weather will keep us indoors at work, and a handful of people will be watching some reality/csi whatever show. Iíll sit in for a minute or two and wonder how people can watch such mind numbing nonsense.

    Try Wild Kratts. Our 9 year old son still watches it after about 6 years or so. We watch PBS Nature and Nova some and Master Chef Junior.

    I do not understand the issue. You donít like a show ó you do not watch it, where is the problem? Especially having in mind how many torrent resources there are available where you may pick almost anything to your taste.

    I am a prophet: they will be sad till 2020, perhaps, 2024. So you may easily turn your TV off for 6 years.
