Valuable Entertainment

So I got home after they let us out.. we're too sad to work after Sheikh Jaber of Kuwait died, may he rest in peace. I got home around late afternoon and I switched on the TV. There was this big Texan, that looks like a bald Saddam Hussain, calling himself Dr. Phil.
The reason I dislike this Colonel/Psychologist is because he had a family that suffered a pedophile predator attack on their 15 year old daughter... now how the fuck is getting a family, that has suffered enough already, being exploited considered daytime entertainment?! He puts on this serious tone and emphazises the syllabuls like a true healer.. but as soon as the show ends it says in the little fine print "FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY" and "ADVICE GIVEN HERE IS NOT" bla bla bla...
This shit crossed cultures even! Its so popular in the States, where its made, that they air it with captions here! And believe you me, next year.. we will have an Arabic Dr. Phil.. maybe Dr. Fadi or something because these stations can't come up with their own worthless crap.. they rip it off.
Right after the doc waved goodbye to the family he just exploited.. they ran an ad for a show "Joe Millionaire part 2." The premise of this show is to fly in more than a dozen European young ladies.. put them under the impression that an extremely unbearable gentleman is worth 20 million dollars when in reality he has 20 dollars in his account... and the audience gets to watch them battle out their way to what is safe to call bottom of the human barrel.
Why is entertainment so extreme these days? There's a show about ugly ladies getting make overs.. the audience is taken through all these labotomies and face lifts..
I remember back when MTV used to play music.. we enjoyed "full house" back then... why did entertainment get so edgy lately?

Any plans to bring in an Arab version of the British reality TV show, Wife Swap?

Dr Phil is not for "entertainment" but rather "informational". The U.S. is lawsuit happy and someone watching may take the exact advice that Dr Phil gives someone and do the same with dire consequences and proceed to blame Dr Phil for it and sue him. In order to prevent litigation we have to have all kinds of fine print on everything we do and say in the public eye.
He is not exploiting these families, he is helping them and by them going public with their issues it has the potential to help someone who happens to be watching and has or knows someone with the same issues.

um haleema, the fine print said "for entertainment" and not "for information" so its quite clear what the show was for.

If he really wanted to help them, he couldve opened a practice and worked with their issues discreetly

I see Um Haleema's point. There are a lot of issues Dr. Phil discusses that need further coverage in the media. Paedophilia is a huge problem in many cultures yet people tend to sweep it underneath the rug for various reasons. I would personally give a standing ovation to those people who have already been through such a difficult time, yet still have the courage and ability to come out and detail their plight in hopes of reaching someone else out there who's suffering in silence. I don't personally watch Dr. Phil and I wouldn't hold his advice in the same esteem as professional medical advice, but if exploits the masses' love of their television sets in a manner which spreads awareness over issues such as this then I say more power to him. Even if he is making a shitload of money on the back of it.

One more thing, and I can't help myself on this one.. there're shows about ugly ladies who get makeovers by having a lobe of their brain cut out (lobotomy)? =) Now THAT i have to see!

Mo, I see what you are saying.. but the truth is Dr. Phil and Jerry Springer (and yes they're the same kind of entertainment) talk seriously during air time... but what they're basically doing is they're bringing freaks and geeks.. kind of like the laugh of the town.. and poke them in front of the viewers. The families that went through the ordeal and Dr. Phil are two seperate things.

The reason I say this is because people watch Jerry Springer to laugh at freaks... mixing serious social and psychological problems into that genre, in daytime entertainment, is alarming.

Thanks for your input.

CAPITALISM: Make more money.

You don't know how much I hate TV! We are subscribed to Sky B, and we pay £30 a month on rubbish!

People like to be entertained!

I think Jerry Springer is alot like the WWE(WWF) providing SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT. We all know it is scripted. A live action male oriented Soap Opera.

I have to seriously wonder if what is on Springer is real. I feel it is just too good to be true. There just aren't enough inbred tatooed fat country red necks and City dwelling trailor park trash wellfare sucking lowlifes to go around all these shows. Are there? Good lord I hope not!

Joker you can't put Jerry Springer and Dr Phil in the same category. Like Cerebralwaste said Springer is more like WWF and is not even on in daytime anymore as far as I know.

The people on Dr Phil are not being exploited. They are being helped as are those who may be in similar situations that may be watching. Check out his website and see if you can find a single issue that is used to exploit rather than help people.

Springer is still on TV. At least in the Boston market. Not that I partake in the viewing of such trash.
