I have not watched TV since 2008 and apparently television got worse in 2008. There's a lot of mindless shit on TV now. Cartoon Network and Nickolodeon are full of mindless shit and now there are a ton of shows on a ton of channels that are mindless shit too.

And don't forget that there is the notorious pro-censorship group, the Parent's Television Council. >_<

I'd say when everything turned into reality and celebrity shows. So around 2000.

I watched a lot of TV in the '90s. Now I don't even own a TV.

The worst are those live dating shows.

I mean, falling in love over the phone? Seriously? I watched one episode and it was so bad... wow.

So television has actually become bad since around 2000?

Well, I think I remember watching great cartoons around 1999. The early 2000's also had great cartoons.

The term "reality show" is really wide. It doesn't have to be about dating or someone's family.

I have no idea. I stopped watching the TV properly years ago. I don't mind watching shows from the 90s though. But yeah. They're relying on dumbing down shows and filling them with stupid to get views.

I mean these "reality" shows are being revealed to attempt to tailor the results. This though, is based off what I read via news sources.

I haven't watched tv beside 2 channels (Dave and E4, for those who know them) since 2007, but I was 10 at that time so I just probably never noticed that they were horrible due to inexperience.

I recently discovered some classics from the 2000s that I didn't watch when they were new, such as Firefly and Alias... but there is still some good stuff on TV nowadays, like American Horror Story, Orange is the new Black and Supernatural ;)

You're actually missing out on some good ones. The more mainstream ones, obviously, like Game of Thrones or Boardwalk Empire. Basically HBO. But there's also some really good cartoons that have come out recently!

Gravity Falls comes to mind as one that I absolutely love. Of course there's also Adventure Time, and I haven't seen it yet but I hear Steven Universe is also really good.

Oh. Right. America. Stupid country getting all of the good tv, forcing me to have to stream it illegally. *grumblegrumble*

From personal experience I stopped watching TV a loooong time ago, when I realised that on "Challenge" it was just re-runs of The Crystal Maze and Takeshi's Castle but recently cartoons like Adventure Time and Gravity Falls caught my interest but Adventure Time had way too many repeats on and too little new episodes and Gravity Falls I can watch on youtube now so I have abandoned TV for the internet

Also, I have Netflix so the point is moot. Plus Takeshi's Castle is amazing, I could watch that show for days. It's the best show to watch when you're feeling like shit.

Takeshi's Castle is the shit, especially with Lister from Red Dwarf commentating.

I've heard that Cartoon Network no longer has live action shows since last year and the person who allowed those shows to be aired was fired. Well, I guess that's that. Still, some of the new cartoons seem to to not be that great, though. And yes, I still don't watch TV anymore because TV sucks.

It's really the wrong question to ask anyway. Most people don't care about TV and would rather watch on-demand stuff.

As far as TV shows goes... I still follow My little pony, and I watch the occasional anime that catches my interest.

Games of Thrones. That is one of the greatest strides in television I've seen since I was born... Popular programming is usually awful. But this show is the opposite of anything bad.

How can you not want to know what happens with this character?
