    Have you ever heard of different tastes?

    Not everyone likes the same thing. Not even all soap fans like every soap opera.

    I don’t buy this new era of TV snobbery of putting someone down for what they choose to watch or their taste in TV shows. Everyone is entertained by something different.

    I hate it when I hear people make fun of soaps and call them trash and whatever. And I equally hate it when I hear soap fans put down other genres of TV shows. It’s no ones place to judge what someone else finds entertaining. For every genre of TV show out there — there is a group of fans that it will reach.

    I personally like variety in my daytime and prime time viewing and I watch a whole variety of programs from talk shows, self-help shows, comedies, drama, soaps, movies, reality and etc. Depends on my mood and what I need to be entertained with at the time.

    Hey Mike, whether you hate it it not let me repeat, I dislike talk shows! My personal taste. Who are you to take that away from me or anyone else?

    I could care less if you like talk shows or don’t like talk shows. That is your perogative.

    My response was because of Cab’s statement:

    “I don’t know why anyone would watch a bunch of women gossiping or a late night show unless there was a reason to watch.”

    To me that is the same as someone coming on here and saying soap operas are trash or I can’t see how anyone could watch those stupid shows and so on.

    We hear stuff like that all the time.

    I don’t care what you watch, what anyone watches, just don’t make fun of me or put me down because I do choose to watch something that you find unappealing.

    To me it is no different than folks who come on here and say they can’t see how anyone can watch that trash General Hospital or that boring show Y&R or that mess that is Days of Our Lives.

    Mike, no one was making fun of or putting down anyone. Cab doesn’t get the fascination with talk shows. Neither do I. Simple as that. And why am I exerting effort defending this guy? Let me get out of here.
