I don't watch them either and I haven't in years. But on the occasion I do see something, its remarkable how the writer are going for cheap laughs based on such crude humor. There is nothing remotely sophisticated about the humor on these shows. Its foul language, toilet humor and graphic descriptions of sex all played for laughs. Don't get me wrong, foul language has a place in art and humor, so does sex. But the way the networks do it is so banal.

Coincidentally, I was reading a book about Eddie Cantor which included a description of what was billed as the "first act of TV censorship." NBC cut the following dialog from one of his shows:

Martin: “Thanks to you, life is bright. You’ve brought me joy beyond measure.”

Cantor: “Don’t thank me. Quite all right. Honestly, it was a pleasure.”

Martin: “Just think, it’s my first one.”

Cantor: “The next one’s on me.”

We have gone down hill from there. Our culture is swirling down the toilet.

Neither do I but I do watch the old shows from Netflix like Hawaii 5-0.

Book em Dano for selling crap disguised as “#1 rated shows” or so the commercials say so.
