I find TV today so uninteresting that I prefer to watch Threes Company re-runs

    Try tvfool.com and enter your address it will give you stations and signal strength in your area. I ditched cable for OTA plus invest in DVD sets.

    I do agree with you, and I'm not a prude at all. I remember what it was like to be young. There was always a basic shared belief system and I think the failure is as much if not moreso the results of their parents as it is the kids. My generation really produced some poor role models, it's definitely worse now though. Again partly because of my generation being poor parents.

    That said, when I was a kid I would watch shows like the Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Threes Company and even the wild Dukes of Hazards. It just seemed to be more light hearted, not mean comedy. I think that's a big deal. The show always ended on a happy even sometimes optimistic note I noticed.

    Let's face it, there are endless reasons society has changed, I will accept some of it, as long as America rejects socialism. As long as capitalism and liberty reign we should all be willing to accept some changes.

    With more access to TV, TV programs can be targeted at a smaller, more hardcore, audience. Back in the day, when there were a few channels, TV had to appeal to as many people as possible, parents and kids watching the same thing.

    The old Rod Serling Twilight Zone was great. If more people in authority watched those old shows they might develop better character and understand what's at stake with the fight for American capitalism.
