Since your peaked out on score, I'm just going to add a hearty, "amen to that" in regards to television just absolutely catering to the lowest common denominator. If you want a good representative example of just how stupid the average person is, watch "None of the Above" on NatGeo. I was excited when I first saw commercials for it thinking it was going to be a nerdy physics type show, but couldn't make it through the entire first episode as it turns out that it's basically 9th grade science class. I've given up on Discovery Network almost all together. TLC is a joke, THC is moronic 23.5 hours out of the day, and I can't quite wrap my head around what crab fishing has to do with the Discovery Channel. Thankfully some of the extended DN channels have some decent programming for at least an hour or so a day.
