The sense in the program is this - the company that makes this or any type
of commercially run program relies heavily upon advertising revenues to make
a profit that keeps them afloat and their shareholders happy oh! and also to
fund that particular program and all the others that they make or buy in.
To get the advertising accounts they need to have a show that people will
watch in their thousands so that they can then run the advertising campaigns
in the "commercial breaks" and the more popular the show the bigger charge
they can make- so therefore as far as they are concerned whether the
program make sense or not as long as people are prepared to watch it then
they can make their profit.
Hence the reason that they put some of (to me) the most stupid of shows on
at the peak viewing period and that is because there are millions of viewers
who do not agree with my view and will watch them
In a nutshell, programs do not have to make sense to all viewers but they do
have to make a profit for the investors - hence the fact that they now have
four "comercial" breaks to the hour each lasting around the five minutes
thus cutting into the content of the program (instead of the old 3 x 3minute
breaks that the used to have) whether the poor bloody viewer agrees with it
(may need a bit of work to make sense out of this but I am having a bad hair
day :-))) )
That's all true, but is this the most that people are CAPABLE of
appreciating, or what they've been CONDITIONED to appreciate?
If I were a conspiracy theorist (I'm not, but it's fun to pretend
sometimes) I'd say that the low-grade pig swill served up as
edutainment is indicative of a populace that has mostly been
made, and is being kept, stupified, distracted and therefore
conveniently docile. Work/spend/work/spend... till you die, and
don't notice or make a fuss about anything important.
Or maybe it's just what happens when the going is too easy for
too long. <tongue in cheek> Start a war, draft most of 'em up for
five years, put the rest on rations and lob the odd bomb at 'em.
How many vacuous makeovers and poncy overpaid chefs would there
be then? </tongue in cheek>
