Well, I tend to agree. Most people watch for the Drama and craziness. But I don't think that they watch it because they enjoy seeing lives fall apart, per se, but that it reminds them that their own lives are not so bad or extreme, that others have it worse.

That's my opinion, at least.

On another note, I believe that the more people see this stuff, the more it seems normal and acceptable. Meanwhile, It really is wrong, but people don't care so long as they get on TV. Quite a sad state of affairs, and I am just as much to blame because I have watched some of these shows.

Peronsally, I never watch them because I can't stand the people that are on them. I still love re-runs of Boy Meets World.
