Why do people like adult shows depicting teenagers and young adults as morons?

Asked by talljasperman (18161 points ) January 6th, 2014

I like them too, from Beavis and Butthead, to Kevin Spencer and some non cartoons like teen mom and teen mom2 and teen mom3. Also Princess with Gail Vaz Oxlade.

They aren’t “adult” shows; they are shows for teens and young adults. They are designed for the 16— 24 demographic, and that’s who watches them.

What he said. ^^^ I have never liked stupid teen type toilet humor.
Not “people”...some people. ;-)

@zenvelo I’m 36 and I still like a new episode when they come.

Teenagers are the living embodiment of grown-up cryptonite.

I watched one of those kind of movies and realized too late how bad it was. I ended up watching it all. I’m sorry I did.

Some idiots will watch anything.

What I wonder is why people think kids being extremely rude or derisively sarcastic on TV is humorous.

People like shows depicting others as morons because, when watching them, they feel good about themselves.

I doubt there are any more of those shows than there are of shows depicting various adults as morons. Or, for that matter, reality shows that apparently star actual morons.

I don’t know about those others, but I still love ‘Beavis and Butthead’.

I have never heard anyone refer to “Beavis and Butthead” as an adult show.
