    Do corporate tv channels try and shove religion down our throats?

    Believe in whatever you want, i dont care, dont preach to me.

    My wife watches these "prime time soap operas" (7th heaven) and they do nothing but preach to each other...

    Perhaps they're trying to reach a target audience that has been discovered through tests and polls to be young-middle age folk who want programming they are able to watch with their children that makes them feel good about life and the time they spend in front of the tv.

    Think tv companies make money from the $90 a month you pay for cable? Nope. Advertising is the word of the day. They test to see who's watching when, sell ads for products those people are interested in, and build programming that attracts them.

    Brother you need to man up and take the goddamn remote and put it on a mans channel. If the wife gets lippy tell her to get her ass in the kitchen, or else. I do it all the time, just ask Canmore he's heard me do it on more than one occasion on the phone...............

    TSGB hit the nail on the head.

    As TV viewers, we have the ability to determine what they show on television. It's the old supply and demand thing. If nobody watched the shows that push religion, they would be off the air. Obviously enough people are watching them on a regular basis to ensure that they stay on the air. Heck, your own wife is part of the problem.......:rotfl:

    what kind of whiny assed bull**** is this anyways? not man enough to take charge of what comes across the tube in your house? not got enough sense by the overly obvious title of the show to realize that it is going to have religious overtones? here's a clue... dont like what's on the TV, either change the channel, turn it off, or leave the room. nobody has a gun to your head forcing you to watch anything. :screwy:
