An idea I found in an interesting book:
"And so, I raise no objection to television's junk. The best things on television are its junk, and no one and nothing is seriously threatened by it.
Besides, we do not measure a culture by its output of undisguised trivialities but by what it claims as significant. Therein is our problem, for television is at its most trivial and, therefore, most dangerous when its aspirations are high, when it presents itself as a carrier of important cultural conversations".
