Disney Channel STILL Sucks

Disney Channel has REALLY found a way to drive parents insane.

In most recent months, Disney has focused on spending all their time and money on their "Hannah Montana" franchise, which is currently dominating the preteen audience of America (especially with young girls). The television show focuses on Miley Stewart (played by Miley Cyrus, what a CREATIVE writing team).

The show has gained global popularity, thanks to its carefully planned-out sitcom formula that Disney has been following since That's So Raven. The formula is carefully recorded and followed to par: terrible acting, weak plot points, ridiculous circumstances, and celebrity guest stars.

The show's massive popularity has sparked a wave of extreme bitchiness for the children of America. Thanks to a lack of discipline being instilled, kids have adopted an attitude of "I-need-to-get-this-toy-or-else-I'll-scream-really-loud".

Honestly, if you interview ANY parent with preteen girls, Hannah Montana is 90% likely to come up somewhere in the conversation. Disney has leached the show out of oblivion; kids are now ready to kill for tickets to shows, which are sold out anyway, so don't expect to get any tickets to shows soon.

But since kids can't get these wonderfully expensive things themselves, they turn to their spineless parents in order to get the stuff. Parents, in turn, go to hell and back to get the Hannah gear. Some even go as far as to lie about their husbands dying in Iraq.

Disney, for the love of all things holy, LEAVE THE PARENTS ALONE. Focus a little bit on something ELSE. Please? If you're driving the target audience to this level, you're becoming some sort of weird media tyranny. You don't even have any REAL commercials on your channel - you just advertise more Disney crap!

I'm so glad I don't have disney channel. If I did, I wouldn't watch it anyway. That Hannah-Whatever is everywhere and it looks so crap.

I wouldn't know what it is like for the parents as I'm not old enough to have kids but I can appreciate that kids are going to scream at their parents until they get bought something. Little brats. I hope I was never like that when I was little. >.<
