At this point, I’m only offended by commercials.

I don’t watch them, for the most part. I only endure commercials if I must: during a live televised sports event. Other than that, I’m not watching TV live. Not gonna happen. All programming is DVRed.

Occasionally, I’ll watch a network news program but I’ll watch it shortly after the broadcast, so I can maximize my time spent — i.e., not watch the commercials. Big, breaking news events — I’ll watch those live, but that’s only a few times a year.

In December 2011 a Twilight Zone-like miniseries out of the UK called Black Mirror premiered. In the first episode a man was forced, through public will, to violate himself on live television.

The gross act, as well as the circumstances surrounding it could have happened in real life, but are not likely events. The horrifying reality of the episode was in the reaction of the fictional public. For over an hour they watched unflinchingly, judgementally, amused by this man's torture.

I know for a fact that this is reality. I've seen it for myself.
