How is this show allowed on the air?
What would you say about a game show that regularly offends other cultures and women? A show that encourages smoking? A show that openly mocks and questions the intelligence of participants? Is there such a show on the air? Yes there is, and I find it disgraceful.
The moderator on this game show regularly asks questions with a degrading Chinese, Japanese, or German stereotypical accent. The questions often refer to actions of intellectually disabled people. Many questions have clear sexual innuendoes. Disgraceful.
Celebrities on the show smoke cigarettes and even on occasion a pipe, without regard for the damage their second-hand smoke forces on other celebrities, contestants or the audience. Disgraceful!
Attractive female contestants have to endure leering and sexually charged comments. They are expected from time to time to kiss the celebrities…ON THE LIPS! Disgraceful!
When a contestant gives a bad answer, the moderator feels no compunction about making derogatory comments. He often belabors the derogatory comments and even invites the audience to taunt and boo.
This show often makes fun of the way others dress, if they have an accent they are made fun of, and their occupations are often disparaged. Disgraceful!
The show is on every morning on a cable game show network. The disgraceful broadcasts are shows from the 1970’s, TV’s “Match Game.”
|Pipe smoking on TV...disgraceful!|
It was a popular daytime game show. I don’t know how the people from the 1970’s survived this disgraceful show. Yet I now watch it daily.
The most entertaining thing is picking out all the things TV can no longer say or do today that were apparently not that offensive in 1970.

Some things from the 70’s are offensive today because we have been told they are offensive. Some things are offensive today because we are just more enlightened.
Interesting how times change, in the 70’s you could make fun of different cultures, sexually harass women, and smoke on daytime TV, but you could not say “penis or vagina.”
