Too Good To Be True?

MSN has an article entitled Sitcom Future Unclear After ‘Friends’ in which they question if sitcoms have had their day and will now begin to fade away. With Friends, Sex and the City, Frasier all bowing out this season and Everybody Loves Raymond all but done, they wonder if the genre will be able to go on. Many people are wondering if sitcoms will begin to fade away.

Oh please oh please oh please oh please oh please.

Now I do not watch any of the aforementioned shows, though I have seen bits of them in the past (except Sex and the City – I haven’t ever seen any of that since I don’t get HBO or whatever network carried it) but I do know they generally have a formula for creating laughs. Sex = funny. It’s that simple. Dirty jokes, dirty comments and dirty thoughts make people laugh. Write enough of those jokes to fill a 22 minute broadcast and you have yourself a show!

Anyways, I say good riddance to all of those shows and sitcoms in general. The only problem is this – what will take their place? I shudder to think that even more reality shows may be created to fill the void!

Have you ever noticed that the more shows there are on television, the less there is to watch?

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
