For me, Genres such as "Sci-fi" and "Fantasy" are unsatisfying, because I am logical and find there is little sense involved, or "time travel" romances. Those designed specifically as "Romance", for the most part. Purely "Action" makes me fall asleep, unless there is a story including these elements and is well-done, such as the first "Bourne" film in the series.

I will not watch shows like "Paternity suit" or anything with too much screaming and arguing. I don't watch TV Dramas on a particular network, since they seem weak and are constructed the same.

I enjoy music overall, but draw the line at most "Country" or "Rap" and the old "Hard Rock" or "Acid Rock" .. breaking guitars, etc., ... sheesh. Sadly, some of the music created now is not much to listen to, but will notice those who are "real musicians".

TV-Reality TV shows. TV Shows where actors don't act normal, seems sarcastic, especially for drama shows.

Music: Current Rap/Hip Hop. Not a fan of the current stuff. Still listen to old school rap once in blue moon.

Movies: Artistic/artsy movies. Critically acclaimed movies that are loved by professional movie critics. European movies. All these movies, 99% are just boring.

The way black culture is promoted as 'cool' and white males are portrayed as bumbling fools where the woman cracks the whip?

Seriously if I'm not interested I just don't watch it, I don't sit and complain about it and rally for anything to be changed.. I believe in freedom of speech thus I believe people can watch what they wanna watch.

Most of the stuff I watch is either movies, Family Guy, or stuff on the science related cable channels. I'll bet there's a ton of content I could get into on the networks but LIFE IS SHORT and I have to delegate time to the best of my ability which means network TV just does not get the time delegation...

TV - any comedy that has a laugh track, almost all reality shows, almost all medical shows, and almost any news show on one of the main networks.

Film - horror

Music - just about anything current

movies: plot holes bug me & unnecessary remakes which are never as good as the original movie.
music: most pop music today is very sex oriented. And some downright dirty. very low-class.
TV: nick or other youth shows where the adults are nowhere to be seen, do these kids live by themselves? wassup with that?
pay-TV is way too expen$ive. WAY WAY too much. I know I am not the only consumer that feels this way.
