He may have agreed with you. In an interview, he once said that he couldn't believe how much money they paid him to do that stupid and ridiculous show. But as long as they paid him, he would keep doing it.

I did not say intelligent television, just entertaining.

Television has not declined in any way as we have multitudes of choices now some very good and some not so much.

And you can watch old television shows as well.

I must disagree with you. The crazy low life tv shows have dumb downed the masses. Naked and afraid the Kardasions housewives of anywhere the list goes on. If someone is not bringing you up then they are bringing you down and taking the nation with it😎

His show was an introduction to the deplorables of America. I didn’t realize that there were really people of such low intelligence and moral character. His show was sort entertaining the way pro wrestling is entertaining. Were these people real? Were they coached to get into fights? Was most of it fake? I don’t know,
