These days I feel as if the Disney Channel shows are continually getting worse and worse. I have to say some shows used to be good, but the plots are getting cheesy, repetitive, and predictable. Some characters on the shows are even quite annoying. For example, in every show there seems to be a supposedly witty kid who is a know-it-all. This especially bothers me because even now the characters are becoming even more unrealistic. Not to mention some of the actors/actresses were just not meant to play their role. You might also start to see some of the shows are getting cut quickly because of how unpopular they are. Some of the best shows on Disney on the top ten list were very old like "Wizards of Waverly Place" and "That's So Raven". What is happening now with shows like "Austin and Ally" and "Crash and Bernstein"? I think it would be great to have a series that has an actual good plot and stays on for longer than a couple years. Although that may seem like a long time, it's obvious to say the good shows stick.
Disney Channel is changing. This is the era of technology- kids are different then what they used to be 7,8 years ago. The old Disney Channel shows will have no effect on them. They won't find the inside jokes comical. Kids don't care about good plot, they just want the funnies. Jokes to have them rolling around with laughter. Our society is always changing- if TV doesn't change interests children won't want to watch those old shows and will resort to other TV networks (and shows) to keep them busy. Your typical Disney Channel show will always have the same cheesy, repetitive and predictable plot for the reason that children have small attention spans. They don't want good story lines, they want short and funny skits. Disney channel isn't looking for good actors- they're looking for people to play the part. The depth of the show doesn't matter, if you can recite a line you're hired. Give them a good plot and they won't want to follow along with it. Disney channel shows are made for kids; no matter how cheesy, repetitive and predictable they may be.
