I don't like American Idol, so at least I don't not have a right to call this shit.

Reality television isn't unique to America, and Japan has its swarm of shitty shows just as well. The real reason reality programming is so ubiquitous is its low production costs, which in turn promotes competition for the easy profits. It's not an indicator of cultural degradation specific to America alone.

There's ______ Idol for a lot more countries than America.

We have South Park and other shit.
