On the other hand, we stopped watching some other shows long ago, deciding that they'd descended to depths with which we're not comfortable. We took Two and a Half men off our regular TV-watching list even before Charlie Sheen's off-screen antics ramped up to ridiculous levels. And Ashton Kucher didn't do much to redeem the show. Likewise, with some regret, we stopped watching How I Met Your Mother for pretty much the same reasons--fewer laughs and more sex.
There are other shows we enjoy--Blue Bloods, Shark Tank, and the like--but more and more I find that I agree with Groucho Marx, who said that he found TV quite educational. Every time someone turned on the set, he left the room and found a book to read.
What about you? I'd love to hear your opinions on this?
