I can't get with modern TV at all. There were a bunch of specialist channels for a while, from MTV and CMT (they used to play music videos) to cooking channels, military channels- all kinds of stuff; they seem to have descended en masse into the cesspool of "contest" shows. The dramas depend heavily on people frantically poking at computers, which is both boring and disturbing, interspersed with scenes of egregious violence and endless dreary stuff about the home lives of the participants, most of whom are either gay or single mothers. The computer people (who are no longer all cute 17 year old girls) somehow know everything without spending any time finding it out. The comedies revolve around people who are incredibly stupid and/or self destructive, untempered by wit or any evident attempt at humor.
