AI: TV Shows
Good afternoon, everybody! Let’s get to it.
So while Work It, arguably the worst new show of all times, has been canceled on its second episode, there is still a considerable amount of crappy and/or offensive and/or stereotyped TV shows with renewed contracts and great audiences waiting for their return (Dexter, with its unbelievably horrible last season, comes to mind).
The thing is, it usually isn’t quality that keeps a show on air, it’s the numbers they provide their networks with – and whilst with Work It there was a delightful combination of both factors lacking, great smart shows like Community tend to always be in almost-cancelled status for poor audience numbers, and incredibly dumb comedies like Rob have sky-rocketing numbers and will most likely be around for a while.
We can’t really change that, but how fun would that be?
If you were given the power, which TV shows would you save or bring back to life (or maybe bring back the initial seasons’ quality)? Which would you cancel or permanently erase? Which shows do you find offensive and think would not be missed?
The Afternoon Inqueery (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Queereka community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 3pm ET.
