I wish that 'adult' TV would take a lesson from 'pre-school childrens' TV. Kiddie shows used to be very violent, but since Sesame Street came about, there has been a complete reversal in program content, and now there's very little violence and a ton of pre-school teaching.
Just the reverse is true in adult programming. The more violent, the more mean-spirited, the more shocking, etc. etc. the more popular. It's scary to see where we're headed. Aren't the REAL WORLD wars and atrocities and threats to our planet bad enough? Why do we have to seek out more negative energy as our entertainment??????
