For a really good cry, watch Jersey Shore while listening to Satie’s Gymnopédie #1 on repeat. Here are more TV-related cartoons.

that’s the way I watch all TV!
I didn’t know chickens, especially the one I know, watch reality TV shows.
I wonder, did you randomly select a song or is that your favorite classical piece?
Not a random selection – I love that piece, and I was listening to it when I scribbled down the initial sketches for this comic.
This song is beautiful despite being sad. I also recommend Moonlight Sonata.If you like Erik Satie, I also recommend Gymnopédie nº1 and Gymnopédie nº3 by Debussy.
I thank the saints for the option to use slow motion at will with this new technologies, it makes it all so more tragic… particularly the fights…
I prefer Funeral March of Beethovens Eroica (3rd)and its even better when you turn tv off.
blinders would help as well
I can’t stand reality shows either! Good shows get cancelled to make way for more reality garbage….arrgh!!
I prefer Rachmaninov’s “Reality TV is an Oxymoron”. One of the Lacrimosa’s might also be an appropriate choice.
But Satie didn’t take himself all that seriously, so perhaps his work could offset the OTT-ness of “reality” TV. I’ve always been fond of Gymnopedie #1 anyway, but it’s probably better — as someone else suggested — with the picture off too.
I can’t figure out how reality shows keep propagating. Everybody talks about how inane they are, so who’s watching them??
Reality is a sport that there is no predetermined outcome and best viewed with the reality of music, not the constant nagging that seems to take place when the sound has been inapproriatley set a level within the decible range.
This one is my new favorite.
I dont watch it thats the best thing to do
I’d try it if I cared at all for reality shows and had any classical music. The chicken is weeping enough for all of us, I think.
Sad but true…. and funny cause it’s true.
Hmmm, what if you put on Guile’s Theme instead?
For maximum soul-crushing-just-end-it-all-now effect, listen to Samuel Barber’s “Agnus Dei” setting of his Adagio for Strings.
Fitting Kurt Vonnegut quote:
And fitting music by Dmitri Shostakovich:
Or you could just not watch it.
