I've been watching since about 96, it's not really any worse now. Typically the people lauding the days of glory past are exactly like Josh on Radiodrome, except in our case it's everything after 2000 sucks. They'll never admit when something now works or is good, unless it's done by an independent company.
The products great now, especially since it's their lead into their biggest show of the year, but I can certainly understand why most folks wouldn't be into it, we've all got our one thing our friends think is odd that we like.
Mine is oily men pretending to punch each other in their underwear. That sounds even gayer than I was intending it to.
