I totally agree with that statement. In last few years, TV shows are created creatively in commercial purpose. They are showed in “correct time” by means lots of people will watch it so that they can sell commercial brake with high price. As spectacular tv shows, each of them have unique style that make people who watch it interested and watch every second of that shows. Some people wants to watch their next episode impatiently.
However, many tv shows use bad ways to make people remain in that channel. They usually give rude jokes or sadism that will cause bad effects specially to children (under age). Consequently, children will remember all the stuff and do it someday unconsciously. For example, children or teenagers will leave home directly after have argument with their parents. It is definitely learned from tv shows.
Other bad effect is that we usually controlled by tv shows. For example, my mother like watching drama tv shows named “Cahaya”. It’s showed every day at 7 pm so she will stop doing activities in that time to watch it. Even she would ask my father to go home if my family was going somewhere just for watch that drama serial. Actually, i think this is very annoying. Tv shows are created for entertaining, not for controlling us.
