The Royal Wedding: Proof that love is more appealing than comedy
When tuning in to coverage of the Royal Wedding, there was a "nice" feeling of love, beauty, patriotism and happiness. That feeling was made very evident by the contrast of the feeling of a drag queen insult comic who Jay Leno's Tonight Show sent over to interview people in the crowd. But he/she didn't play well in that the (supposed) comedy took away from the feeling of the event. In fact it was downright embarrassing and even disgusting, not funny. An analogy would be: playing rap music during a romantic evening. (If a person doesn't get that, they don't know what love and romance are.) Another analogy would be: relaxing on the beach and then putting on a heavy metal song.
So then, given all three of these scenarios (the real one and the two analogies), which ones are the more appealing ... the nice ones or the brazen ones? Well the telling difference in appeal between them is the fact that 2 BILLION people tuned into the wedding.
I wish that the entertainment industries would get the fact that love, peace, niceness, reverence, patriotism and beauty are more innately appealing and pleasurable than violence, lust, hyperness and sensationalism. It's better to be nice than to be shocked. I don't even watch TV dramas or violent movies because I don't like to see human beings hurting other human beings. If the problem is with the public, I wish then that they would get it too.
Ultimately, the good things that I mentioned are also better for the health, happiness and social statistics of the country. Maybe you had to grow up in the 1950's (like I did) to know the greater pleasure of the positive things that I mentioned. But you didn't have to grow up in the 1950's to read the difference in social statistics between then and now, or feel the beauty in the feelings of a lot of the TV shows, movies and music.

This is a canard. There is absolutely no way to calculate world wide viewership. This number was used prior to the event to hype it. There are no facts to prove it. 23 million watched it here in the states. Twice that watched to see who shot JR.
Exactly what I was thinking as I watched the recap of the day. Civility, decorum, respect, and (especially) love were the foci of the day.
It was the antithesis of radical Islam.
Hollywood doesn’t care what the public likes or give two shakes of a lamb’s tail about the value of goodness and decency and faith and patriotism and stories that uplift and inspire people to be their best. They want to destroy America and the West by destroying its culture and they are winning.
23 million die hard fans who sacrificed sleep to be able to watch it live (was one of those west coast viewers), unlike Dallas which was aired during primetime.
Yeah, that 2 billion viewer stat is completely bogus.
As embarrassing as the United States of America electing an America hating marxist as it’s president.
According to Mark Steyn, there were more men watching reruns of The golden Girls (dubbed in Spanish) than there were watching the Royal Wedding...
Think of the advertisers who paid a premium to place ads before that audience of “2 billion”. I’m sure they got what they paid for.
is that the ministry of stupid hats ?
Flip Wilson played a female character. Was he a drag queen?
It seemed like every channel covering the wedding had to have some faggot there commenting on what the people were wearing.
Hey, it’s also claimed early each year that something called the Superball has an audience of a billion.
