Trash TV: Italian leading edge

Stupid TV shows are not an Italian privilege. In any part of the world you can find TV attractions where people do any absurd to get their 15 minutes of fame. What gives Italy a special distinction is how trash TV is well positioned, both in terms of audience and prestige.

An evident example of this garbage is La Corrida, from Canale 5, where amateurs present their special abilities and are evaluated by the crowd. As you can imagine, this kind of show tends to be really funny. But in Italy they crossed the line between funny and lack of humane respect.

The show is hosted by Gerry Scotti and the beautiful Michela Coppa. Their mission is to present weird stuff and make the attenders look like complete idiots. Quite frankly, it seems they present some mentally challenged people just to mock at them. This is completely unacceptable.

Here there is one of the attenders dancing. One wonders how much pain this poor lady had suffered the day following her presentation.

    It is very refreshing to see such great performances in Italy, as well as the great variety shows available with such talent unsurpassed in the world today. Americans could certainly benefit from watching Italian TV and perhaps one day develop some sort of talent among themselves instead of the “rap” they seem to concentrate on, which is no talent at all, nor does it possess any kind of artisitic value. Italians are the best in the entertainment world.

    I am glad you like it! But the crème de la crème is Emilio Fede. From your argument, I am sure you are the kind of person who likes him.

    But, from my understanding, I prefer 50 Cent to this kind of “great performance” with astonishing “artistic value”.

  3. You’re right about this being trash TV, but it’s not at all so well positioned in terms of audience or prestige, actually it’s on air on saturday night ’cause the 80% of italians go out for dinner.
    If we want to talk about trash TV that people like, there’s plenty of stupid talk-shows.
    Emilio Fede is not a moron. Don’t you dare!
    Emilio Fede is THE moron.
