Reply To: Big hair and Christian TV shows


Look who controls these networks and where the shows originate from. CBN in particular - owned and operated by Pat Robertson straight out of the Bible Belt - where big hair and tons of makeup seem to never go out of style. They are targeting an audience (using very sophisticated marketing research) in order to garnish the most money possible. That target seems to be (and I hate to use this phrase) 'trailer park trash.' Then look at the Sunday morning fare on regular network TV - shows such as 'Hour of Power' with Robert Schuller. This is from a mainstream church with modern, somewhat liberal beliefs. The high hair and tons of makeup are not there. Their target audience isn't selected for generating the big money, rather getting the word of Christianity across to the masses. In so many words, CBN and their ilk are out to get money from an audience that studies have shown are most likely to send them money because they see some sort of 'kinship' with these broadcasters. They further push that 'kinship' with a certain style and gaudiness that their audience appreciates. It ain't the message they are worrying about - it's getting the money, which translates into influencing politicians to further push their addendum for the rest of us 'lost souls.'
