Sitcom Infantalization and
the Death of America

FrontPage, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 7/15/2013 10:22:07 AM

It’s not difficult to peg precisely when the American sitcom moved away from following the lives of mature adults to idealizing the lives of overgrown adolescents. But there’s no question that two generations of Americans have now grown up in a world where virtually everyone worth watching on television is a twentysomething to thirtysomething without a home, a spouse, children, or even a solid job in many cases.

Agree with Mr. Shapiro and say, wanna know what´s next? Take a peek at British TV and how infantile they are.

Whatever they´re doing shows up here.

With each new sitcom, Dan Quayle´s naïve and roundly ridiculed assessment (Murphy Brown) is proven to be right.

What an absolutely stupid article and assertion. There are any number of family comedies around, from the Simpsons to Arrested Development to the fantastic The Middle and The Neighbors, to the recently cancelled Rules of Engagement. What is truly infantile today are all the "reality" shows that anyone with a brain knows are not reality but staged. And I personally love Big Bang. For this jerk to pass judgement on comedy is absurd,

I have not turned my tv on since late 2011.
I catch glimpses in the salon or when I eat out, and am astounded by the mindless pap that is fed to the population.
I suggest a moratorium for all thinking people. Stop watching it all for 3 months, most of you will never go back.

Made the banality of reality TV appear as fresh and innovative (and truer to life even if it is scripted and you know it). IOW, a better mind-numbed pleasure to escape the sitcoms.

Mary Tyler Moore didn´t have a roommate as I recall. She had neighbors dropping in regularly but the point of the show (and a very large hint was provided by the theme song) was how Mary would make it on her own.

The world is about marketing, whether it be ideas, concepts, physical product or whatever. Advertisers know this, and they know people watch this idiocy, and that´s how the production of this stuff is funded -- it´s called capitalism, and I endorse it. But I don´t watch what passes for modern comedy. Except for "Golden Girls" and "Friends," I find that shows that have to have a laugh-track are moronic at best, but as long as there viewers, this sludge will exist (but not at my house!).

I hate to say it because I like Mr. Shapiro, but he´s woefully out of it here, both historically, and analytically. Brian Keith and Family Affair, Julia, Courship of Eddie´s Father, all examined the changing family structure beginning in the mid 60s.

Mike Stivic was portrayed almost as moronic as Archie.

The Simpsons, for all of their cartoonish dysfunction, are a strong, nuclear family (as were the Bundys, for that matter).

They tried to make Archie out to be just a bigot, but people identified with him more than "Meathead". As for today´s sitcoms, who can sit through joke after joke about sex? Or, what kind of PERSON laughs and enjoys such mindless pablum? I used to LOVE sitcoms. I hate most sitcoms these days.

Really #5---Rules of Engagement a FAMILY show??

The main characters............

A married couple, with no children! (until the last episode).

A couple living together, constantly bragging to their friends about the great sex they´re having! (they get married also in the last show)

A single guy, (with a great job he was given by his father), who´s sole goal is to bed every girl he meets!

The single guy´s assistant, who is portrayed as normal, (and is constantly mocked by his boss).

Boy! That say´s "family show" to me!

Yes, our resident wabbit is spot-on here. I´ve got my bunny chaser on the leash (for now).

I haven´t watched an American sitcom regularly since "Northern Exposure" but when I occasionally see one I can´t believe how shallow they are. When I had a t.v. I did enjoy many of the British shows - including As Time Goes By and Balleykss Angel (a heartbreaker, for sure). I do not miss t.v., not for an instant.

#6 - Done. Got rid of cable back in March, mostly for financial reasons. $100/mo, and I realized that nobody was watching anything, except the Weather Network, and the occasional golf game (and that was me watching). Honestly, I was surprised at how easy it was. The only time I miss TV is when something like the Zimmerman trial verdict comes in, and then it´s just the convenience of turning on the TV to see the coverage. I can still find it online, but it takes me longer to track down streaming video. When I hear ads for new upcoming TV shows, I feel like I´m listening to reports from some foreign country - everything sounds cheap, vulgar, sex-obsessed and artificial. I wouldn´t have cable TV back if the company paid ME for it.

The war on standards

Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate.

What Really Happened at the Bay of Pigs

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

Capitalism and the Dalai Lama

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

It used to be that if you went to a college-level debate tournament, the students you’d see would be bookish future lawyers from elite universities, most of them white. In matching navy blazers, they’d recite academic arguments for and against various government policies. It was tame, predictable, and, frankly, boring. No more. These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national collegiate tournaments over the past few years. But this transformation has also

According to the World Jewish Congress, 17,000 Jews live in the city. The leaflets were handed out by several Balaclava clad men carrying a Russian flag earlier this week as well as being found plastered to buildings near a synagogue. They ordered all Jews aged 16 and older to register with the separatists, pay a $50 fee and report all motor vehicles and real estate in their possession. The flyers also said

British Prime Minister David Cameron used his Easter message to talk about the significance of the holiday as he highlighted the role of Christianity in Britain and the plight of Christians in countries where they are persecuted. He said the country should reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain. “All over the UK, every day, there are countless acts of kindness carried out by those who believe in and follow Christ,” Cameron said. “The heart of Christianity is to ‘love thy neighbour’ and millions do really live that out.” He mentioned prison ministries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters run by churches.

The debate over campaign contributions is never-ending for a simple reason: Both sides of the argument have merit. On the one hand, of course money is speech. For most citizens, contributing to politicians or causes is the most effective way to augment and amplify speech with which they agree. The most disdainful dismissers of this argument are editorialists and incumbent politicians who — surprise! — already enjoy access to vast audiences and don’t particularly like their monopoly being invaded by the unwashed masses or the self-made plutocrat. On the other hand, of course money is corrupting.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
