No, hear me out.
I blame the regular people who are the viewers that add up to the ratings. If a show is mean, people are mean for liking it.
Wow. So.....I like Letterman, I get a kick out of his show. Does that make me a mean person?
I'm not, actually. I'm a very nice person, and I enjoy some things people don't like, and I don't like other things that other people like.
People have different tastes. It's human nature. One cannot make a sweeping generalization such as, "If a show is mean, people are mean for liking it." Some people's "mean" is another person's "funny". Sometimes Letterman goes to far, but so do alot of other comedians. It's their job.
