There is just about any kind of garbage you can imagine on television these days. What was once considered pornography is now primetime television designed to “educate” all of us on what exactly society should look like. At one time society looked like “Leave It to Beaver” and “Happy Days.” The media moguls, however, would like us to believe those “happy days” are long gone and the “new normal” is what America is all about now.
Hence, we have dating shows like the Bachelor/Bachelorette that show us how to be sleazy with lots of people before failing miserably at our relationship. Then there’s the token sitcom portraying father’s as useless idiots while the female is the capable, brilliant, talented parent. We even have shows that make us believe in realities that don’t even exist, because, I suppose, this one is so bad? Even sports have become politically correct, agenda driven episodes where obvious facts can’t even be stated without reprisal (Rush Limbaugh on Monday Night Football anyone?).
And while series like “Big Love,” “Sister Wives,” and “The Playboy Club” seek to glamorize lifestyles that are both alternate and immoral, a new show wants everyone to know what the “new normal” is all about.
