and Nick and Cartoon Network. I think these channels are disgusting. The shows characters are rude, shallow, immature, vulgar, selfish, stupid. They don't promote any good qualities. You rarely see parents or portrayal of family lifestyle. When there is a parent figure around, he/she is usually an incompetent, helpless buffoon, who is a blubbering mess over some issue they can't solve independently.  They're not like the old Cosby Show and Family Ties, where the family was valued and vital. Parents were loving, wise, helpful, and competent. 

What do you think about the content on these channels?

I think you may be over reacting just a tad.

I hate them. But I think there's a fine balance between over exposure and just enough. I hated being the kid in school who doesn't get to join in the convo cuz mommy won't let me watch the tv.

Love them and so does ds. Get over yourself. You're the parent so it's up to you to teach your kids family values not some fake show. They are there to entertain not to teach u how to be a family.

I haven't had cable in nearly 3 years, and when I did, my kid didn't care about TV except for Yo Gabba Gabba. He barely cares about TV now. So I don't really remember what was on those channels.

But to your OP, its your house, your rules. Get DVD's of those shows you liked and introduce them to your kids.

I can agree, however- it's up to the parent to teach these things, not the tv. My child watches Sprout and Nick, and she isn't anything like the characters. She also doesn't act like a two year old. I can see however if you park your child in front of the tv and don't interact with them, this could be a problem.
