"How much of a problem is it if anyone can change the channel or turn off the device."
We all choose what we want to watch. If we stop watching shows like NCIS, they will be taken off the air. Obviously people like it, so CBS will continue to show it, as their responsibility to their employees and shareholders requires them to do.
The thing about digital TV really has nothing to do with this and that tangent got started when you said something about offering more channels for less money through socialism. I probably shouldn't have replied to that, it's completely off-topic for this thread.
My brother sent me the capsule about this particular episode and it struck a chord with me which is why I posted here. Believe me, I could go on about most of what passes for creativity on television. What a completely wasted resource.
Speaking of terrible messages from Hollywood...I haven't seen it yet but I'm thinking Avatar is going to be more liberal bull sh_t. I'm going to see it because of the technology, but I already have a theory about the story line and the "message" about Americans and about Marines. I'm braced.
Weren't we better off when guys like John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart stood behind their government and it's war efforts and were proud of being Americans? Why is where we're at now better? Every story taken from history now has America as the villain, movies all have as their theme what a terrible culture we have here and we're responsible for every malady on the planet. What crap.
