Perhaps. There certainly is a portion of that entertainment that seems to enjoy vile language and all sort of what most would consider uncivil behaviors.

Update

'CNN Insider' Says Kathy Griffin Is Out for New Year's 2011

"Rob Shuter at PopEater says comedienne Kathy Griffin is not in CNN's plans for another New Year's party of profane Times Square banter with anchorman Anderson Cooper:

Following her very controversial F-bomb-dropping New Year's Eve hosting gig, CNN executives have decided Kathy Griffin will NOT be getting a 2011 invite. "She was a total embarrassment to the network that calls themselves 'The Most Trusted Name in News.' Even Anderson (Cooper, her co-host) thinks it's time to say goodbye to Kathy," a CNN insider tells me.

Not only did the potty-mouthed redhead drop the F bomb on live TV, she also made not-so-funny jokes about needing a "bump" of cocaine and asked Cooper if he pleasured himself while looking in the mirror. As sexy as the Silver Fox is ... that's just too much, Kathy.

Even worse than the comedienne's desperate need to shock was the fact that the show was a ratings bomb, as it fell far behind the family-friendly 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve' on ABC.

That would be the Dick Clark show that dropped the live performance from American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert after his smutty live performance at the Clark company's American Music Awards on ABC.

More from PopEater:

Still, CNN publicist Shimrit Sheetrit tells me: "No decisions have been made yet regarding next year's show."

CNN, I find it hard to believe that you have not yet made a decision regarding someone who drops the F bombs live on your network.

PopEater asked a poll question about Griffin: "Funny or foul?" With more than 300,000 votes in, 84 percent picked "foul.""

Maybe an adult at CNN finally had the guts to stand up.

I did not find it funny. It was in very bad taste, but what else is new nowadays?

It was funny in so much as one can find similar sounds amusing. Bad taste? Sure. Anything to complain about? No.

Similar "sounds", she was "making sounds", like baying at the moon or croaking like frog?

She was SPEAKING, not "making sounds",there is an intellectual distinction.

Bad taste and worthy of public comdemnation and removal from the show as has happened.

You say you didn't tune in so why do you care about her removal from the show?

Now CNN will have NO viewers on New Years eve.

Why shouldn't I care about the level of decorum on our society?

Maybe they'll have more, had she not engaged in this behavior before I might have stopped on the channel for while. The minute I saw she was on the show, on to the next channel in the rotation that night and dropped CNN.

Are you the arbiter of decorum ON our society? (Should be in our society). You arbitrate decorum and I'll ride herd on grammar and spelling and stuff. Ok?

Oh, so you DID tune in for a minute?

No but I certainly have as much voice in it as you don't I. Apparently CNN agrees more with mine than yours.

And I asked you question

Why shouldn't I care about the level of decorum on our society?

Yeah we surfed lots of channels that night and ended up rotating between a few. Why do you ask?
