In this essay I am going to express my views on the bad aspects of TV, and explain what they are. Possibly, this essay may change your views on TV and how it is used.The truth is that most TV shows suck. This is especially true in so-called "situation comedies". The reason they have to add that stupid laugh track is so you know what part is 'supposed' to be funny.

Which causes smart people to become less intelligent. TV is always moving at a fast speed, there is usually action or a confrontation in every scene of a show so that viewers don't lose interest. This tends to make people bored in real life which is an awful thing because you tend to become lazy and unmotivated, which will cause you to watch more TV (do you see the cycle).TV is too censored. Only a handful of corporations control what you can and can't see on TV, and who are they to say what should be censored and what...
