‘Sister Wives’ Family Investigated — Can They Arrest TLC instead?

Written by , Posted in General

The stars of TLC’s new show, Sister Wives, are being investigated by Utah police for polygamy, and hopefully they will be thrown in jail.  But what about TLC?  Is it possible to throw an entire network in jail?  If so, I’d like front row seats for the handcuffing.  While I’m not opposed to documentary-style shows, I draw a line in the sand at shows like this.  It’s gross.  And even if I’m guilty of voyeuristically watching it (which I’m not), that doesn’t make it right.  It’s disgusting, and should be pulled off the air.  Network executives don’t get to high-five each other with a ratings hit, when the their hit show documents morally reprehensible behavior.  And save your emails about moral relativism.  Some things are objectively wrong, and this is one of them.  I’d justify my claim with an actual argument, but that would be a boring waste of breath.  Trust me — it’s gross.

    I agree with you but the difference is I have much better things to do with my time then to watch garbage. So who is at fault the TLC channel for putting on this crap or the people who are stupid enough to watch it.

    It is clear that they should all be prosecuted under polygamy and the same exuberance that we put towards cults. This is just plain nasty and they’re polluting the minds of these children. Clearly Cody should be castrated and jailed, and these women should be sent to re-education camps at a minimum. Obviously they should be stripped of their children who will be sent to foster parents for a lifetime of pure democratic upbringing.

    These poor children should be removed from the home. This is abuse!!!!

    • Yeah, it’s pretty horrific. I’m still more angry with TLC though that pays
      them for their story, which is basically enabling the behavior.

    Agreed. This show is disgusting. These women are so pathetically void of any self respect or self esteem it makes me sick. And the guy should be castrated. Who does he work for and why have they not fired this freaking loser.AND… WHY ARE THEY NOT IN JAIL?????? Their kids are going to be so incredibly messed up so, you know, thanks for that Browns or whatever they call themselves.
    TLC should be fined to the point of bankruptcy for promoting and supporting not only this crap but every other dog crap programming they put on the air.
