Reruns

I read an article in the H-un the other day that reported about how television viewers are flocking to watch reruns on the box. Seinfeld, old episodes of The Simpsons, The Flintstones and Bewitched are just some of the shows that are scoring good ratings. The reason why this is so is very simple. These are good, enjoyable shows that the whole family can watch, not stupid, cheaply made reality shows that seem to proliferate on TV today.

Does anyone really care if some Z-list celebrity can cook? Do we care if some computer nerd can hook up a date with some bimbo stripper? Do we care if some scrubbers attend an English boarding school where the snobbish pommy teachers are so judgemental that the average viewer wants to punch them in the nose? I can’t be the only one bored of all these pathetic reality shows.
