Isn't it interesting in this era of anything goes tabloid...

September 02, 1990

Isn't it interesting in this era of anything goes tabloid television and sweeps weeks, when Peeping Tomism passes for news, that advertisers should get upset about shows of content tackling serious issues?

Is it OK when the viewing audience is leering at the human condition, but not OK when they're seriously engaged?

Except for a small body of work, the networks have written off viewers who want some challenge in their viewing selection. Is it any wonder a growing audience is retreating to cable channels or turning off the set all together?
