dancing with the so-called stars

I just don’t get it…
I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars. Maybe I am the only one in the country that just doesn’t find it all that interesting regardless of who is dancing. I have glanced at it a few times as I flip channels, but it just never caught much of my attention. It’s just another copycat show where people appear to compete, but in reality they just get voted on by viewers sitting at home thinking they are making some sort of contribution by casting a vote. If you are really into it, you can have text alerts sent to your PDA/cellphone so you can have constant Dancing with the So-Called Stars updates—do people actually do this?
The only REALISTIC thing about this ridiculous show is how SERIOUSLY it is taken by many of its viewers…! Some horribly distraught 67-yr old Wisconsin guy shot up his TV and a swat team had to be deployed because he didn’t care for the fact that Bristol Palin was appearing on the show. The genius eventually aimed the gun at his wife, thankfully she was unharmed. More recently, a mysterious envelope was sent to ABC studios in Los Angeles addressed to Palin. It contained a white substance that immediately had to be investigated. After God-knows how much tax payer money was spent, the substance was evaluated and ended up being talcum power. What was the point of that? Thank you to the bonehead who found it necessary to spend taxpayer money as well as LAPD and FBI resources on that sophomoric stunt, all because of a stupid TV show.
What’s happening to the people in the US? Are lives of Americans so darn uninteresting and nonproductive that its become serious spare time priority to watch so-called reality shows and assume there’s some sort of relevance and meaning to them? I hate to break it to you folks, but that program is not about talent, it’s about getting you to watch and getting sponsors for advertising dollars. That all translates into revenue, which further translates into profit dollars.
If you don’t like who’s on the stupid show, turn it off. Simple as that. Don’t watch it, watch something else, something inspiring, maybe something educational or historic. Read a book. If you are feeling really daring, do something horribly useful and productive like exercise or get off your tattered rear and help someone in need.
It’s pretty basic, if something upsets you, don’t do it anymore–that’s why I stay away from TV news and political opinion shows. I’d rather watch Dancing with the Stars…
