I think tupidity is glorified while intelligence is mocked.
( I might be wrong, but I just can't comprehend)
For instance how in the hell did Jersey Shore become a show and stay a show? It's just a bunch of guidos and whores getting wasted and sleeping with each other and strangers.

I think people just watch it for the drama; I can't stand two minutes of it, but I watch other seemingly mind numbing shows like Bad Girls Club ^^
It's all just for entertainment. Obviously in our lives real time, if you got some sense, your not gonna walk around being a guido or acting like a whore, because you have ( or should have,) more class. So, seeing these other people do it, is almost like a way for us to ponder and comprehend a lifestyle we ourselves wouldn't follow.
What I don't understand as far as Jersey Shore - is how the hell Snookie became a celebrity? Everyone talked about Snookie like she'd ended world hunger or something. The least she could do is be talented at something - her and Paris Hilton. Just sayin.
But people feed into that type of entertainment for the reason I spoke about above. Doesn't make them any less intelligent though.
I've yet to encounter anyone being mocked for having considerable smarts; usually those are the types of people who are investigating gruesome murders, rescuing some city in distress, or enlightening the world with scientific documentaries and such. All that makes for good TV :)0
