The episode in question aired on March 17, two full weeks before this letter was
published. Prior to the March 24th episode (one week before publication), CBS
and The Amazing Race issued an apology. It's getting bad when Deseret
Media is behind on even their Letters page.
Ideally, the networks should apologise to the nation for the entire
'reality' tv genre. Unfortunately, it's not their fault;
it's the schlock we want to watch these days and they supply it. Even
A&E, once a viable PBS alternative, is now all rubbish.
You blinked and missed it.
There are plenty of good shows on TV, but reality TV provides none. For comedy
I watch Psych. For a good yarn, I like Person of Interest. But there are others
as well. If people think TV is worse now or even the taste of the people was
better in yesteryear, please don't forget shows like "The Love
Boat", "The Dukes of Hazzard" and "Fantasy Island" were top
