Watching TV has become more and more of a problem for us. I am not one of those phony shitheads like the Nutty Professor who claim they never watch TV. I love TV. I watch it all the time. After a long day it should be relaxing and enjoyable. It is not anymore.
I remember when I was a kid and we all enjoyed six channels. There was CBS, NBC and ABC. Two independent channels WPIX and Fox. Plus PBS if you were gay. So America was basically forced to come together and watch the same things. In the sixties we watched the sitcoms like Gilligan and the Brady Bunch and I Dream of Jeanie and Bewitched. Or dramas like Gunsmoke and Bonanza. The Wonderful World of Disney. Lawrence Welk. Batman. Basically all the shit I write about. But even the seventies and the eighties had cultural benchmarks for all of us. Friends. Seinfeld. The Love Boat. NYPD Blue. All in the Family. The Jeffersons. Mary Tyler Moore. The country was brought together by the same shows we were all watching.
Now there are a hundred channels and there is nothing on. You have streaming services and cable packages. The audience is diverse and fragmented. Only a tiny portion of the old audience is available to any niche part of television viewership. The problem is the powers that be play to only one niche. The woke.
Every single show is coopted by Black Lives Matter and ultra liberal woke ideas. Cop show. They only villain's are white supremacist Trump supporters. We have stopped watching all the crime shows like Chicago PD, FBI, FBI Most Wanted, the Equalizer and every other cop show has become saturated with race baiting dogma that makes the show unwatchable. The only ones on regular TV I can still stand are the fireman shows like Chicago Fire, 911 and 911 Texas Bullshit. The Medical shows are a constant BLM suckfest. I will never watch them again. So what am I left with? Cooking shows and the Real Housewives.
And then they fucked that up.
The Real Housewives of New York have injected a black woman. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills now have both a Black and an Oriental. They play the race card at every opportunity. It is just horrible.
This Eboni Williams is just a piece of shit. She was late to go to a party and when crazy Ramona called her on it she said she had to take more time because black people had different hair so she didn't have to be on time. When they were arguing about one of the other bitch's Eboni started yelling and Luann asked her why she was angry. This let her go in to a tirade about not calling her an "Angry Black Woman" while she was acting like she worked at the DMV. This is the bullshit that they are pulling now on the Housewives. Everything is about race instead of sex or money troubles. The are fucking up my one simple pleasure.
That only leaves cooking shows. We decided to watch the "Great English Baking Show" for the first time. I had heard about it but we never watched it. I am not a fan of baking. It is too much like science. You have to measure things and be precise. I am all about cooking and throwing shit in to make it taste good. Still and all the show was pretty good and the kid that won actually made a bunch of gluten free shit. Now Lisa is demanding that I start baking shit. I am going to get even fatter.
Why can't I just go back to being a simple racist?
