WHAT AMERICANS WATCH ON FOX

It should come as no surprise that the Fox Network is the troth that people go to to feed on violence. Here's a prime example;

The 25th season kicks off with officers responding to a domestic-disturbance call in Toledo. Also: Sacramento cops work with an animal trainer to contain a feral zebra that's running loose in the city; a disturbance call in Portland, Ore., involves a suspect chasing a man along a highway overpass.

Assuming a season equals 1 year this is a quarter century of  millions of multi-generational Americans glued to their TV sets being entertained by cops and bad guys chasing and running in around Hometown, USA.  This is actually somebodies idea of "family entertainment"? Spending an evening at home with the kids witnessing cops responding to a domestic disturbance call in Toledo?

This show, and all those other "reality" (really?) shows that have followed makes up the majority of prime time viewing by a large portion of the American population.  Can their lives be so empty that they need to find ways to experience what they are duped into believing is reality?

Maybe thrashing the mental health care system in the 60's was not such a good idea after all.
