Subject: Not just moral

As soon as the private stations started broadcasting in the 1990s, they immediately started to attract people by sending sex films and shows and all moral barriers went down.
I heard that the first German private TV station had a BIG lapse in their program: on Mother's Day, at 4pm, they wanted to show a "mother" movie, and they just selected one by title - the movie happened to be a porn movie! And it was broadcast at a time when kids watch TV!
Just a side joke.

I don't see that today German TV has much sex in their programme any more (well, you sometimes see naked breasts but that's not sex ... just ask Bill Clinton ^^ ) but really, they seem to be attracting customers in disgust shows.
"Big Brother" (I don't know if the concept is also familiar elsewhere) is pretty much a voyeur show where 24/7 people in a sealed container are observed with video cams, and a special show every day highlights the most "interesting" things that happened during the day (such as one person getting diarrhea and running to toilet all the time).
And they had the "Jungle show" last year, allegedly it was funny, but I don't see much "humor" in forcing a woman to eat raw kangaroo testicles or immersing a person in cockroaches... that's the intellectual level to which our private TV has degraded. Sometimes, they have interesting movies but since the privatization, I may have access to 30+ channels but finding *any*thing worthwhile seeing seems to have become harder than at the time we only had 3 channels.

Since then, standards do not seem to exist any more.
It seems like they try to break a record in who can set the lowest standard.
They had a show one time (only read about it, so I don't know too much details): I spit this chewing gum onto the escalator, if you pick it up and chew it for a min, I'll give you $100... I pity people who watch that kind of show for amusement.
