Why do Americans like the Jerry Springer show ?
the dumbed down ones do
Actually most of us think it is stupid.
I don't.But many people watch it, because it's entertaining (for them).
actually we don't Jerry Springer is lame
Everyone enjoys a good laugh at someone dumber than themselves.
because they think it is entertaining and they like watching perverted stuff I guess
I think it gives people a sense of superiority and validation. They feel better about themselves and their own lives by watching people who are worse off.
