Zappa wrote a song decades ago about television. It's as relevant today as it was then. Zappa was a strange fellow (by his own admission) but sometimes he was dead, spot on in his trademark sarcastic observations.

I am gross and pervertedI'm obsessed and derangedI have existed for yearsBut very little has changedI'm the tool of the GovernmentAnd industry tooFor I am destined to ruleAnd regulate you
I may be vile and perniciousBut you can't look awayI make you think I'm deliciousWith the stuff that I sayI'm the best you can getHave you guessed me yet?I'm the slime oozin' outFrom your TV set
You will obey me while I lead youAnd eat the garbage that I feed youUntil the day that we don't need youDon't go for help, no one will heed youYour mind is totally controlledIt has been stuffed into my moldAnd you will do as you are toldUntil the rights to you are sold
That's right, folksDon't touch that dial
Well, I am the slime from your videoOozin' along on your livin' room floorI am the slime from your videoCan't stop the slime, people, look at me goI am the slime from your videoOozin' along on your livin' room floorI am the slime from your videoCan't stop the slime, people, look at me go
