Shows about shows.
My roommate and I have noticed the increasing amount of shows about shows, and in some cases, shows about shows about shows. I don't mind most non video-based mtv shows, but do we really need "Mtv's Hottest Moments" and the like? Maybe Mtv is a lost cause because the channel seemed to follow a common trend, which David Bennahum described when talking about the stupidity of some GUIs in his book Extra Life:
"What first promises to be an extraordinary intellectual expansion [well, in Mtv's case decent idea] is quickly, by virtue of its popularity, undermined by the market's inclination to reduce the sophicated to the homogeneous."
