I hear this cry from people for more “aspirational TV,” but the viewers still come to watch vampires and girls getting raped and slashed and autopsied by tough-talking TV detectives/crime scene investigators. People say TV is a wasteland, but they vote for waste every time. Just like they say they want to clean up Washington, but they vote for crooks every time. What people say and what people do are two very different things.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
