Jonathan Yaniv: DexterHonestly, there's a lot of precursors to the stuff we cover on the Farms, and in a weird way it feels like most of the major lolcow categories and certain sub-forums have a "common ancestor" or well-known "Ur-Example" in the pop culture of the 20th Century.
Lolcows: The "Trash TV" genre of talk shows and TV news magazines in general, Morton Downey Jr. is the earliest example I can think of, but Jerry Springer and Hard Copy are probably the most influential
Horrorcows and Skitzocows: Mondo Cane and the "mondo film" subgenre it spawned
Articles & Happenings: Hard Copy for TV, the "yellow journalists" of the 1900's for print
Political Lolcows and "Internet Bloodsports": Again, Morton Downey Jr.
Rat Kings: Pink Flamingos
Animal Control: Fritz the Cat
They called this 'exploitative' when Fox did it with 'The Littlest Groom'! Anti-conservative bias herpaderpderp
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is the epitome of horrorcows, and I feel like that show is gonna be used as the common example of how brazenly children were exploited in the entertainment industry.
Of all the stupid shit people get upset over nowadays, I'm surprised that show was made in the 2010s.

The worst couple is Brittany and Yazan, who are current. Two captagon addicts with a foreigner fetish.
I actually loved this program. I binge-watched it and I enjoyed it a lot.
There are Tiktokers who legitimately believe Megan is Missing is a good horror movie and not a bad film made by a guy who has a creepy interest in high school girls having sex.lmao the amount of people in that comment section who unironically believe this movie is sad, how sheltered are you.
First thing that came to mind. It’s a shame that Chris Hansen himself was revealed to be a massive boomer lolcow himself, but the show itself is still comedic gold.To catch a predator. The show itself ended 15 years ago, but boy, oh, boy, some of the specimen that were featured there.
This guy and his family.
OUR LORNE AND SAVIOR!
And now Chris Hansen himself has a thread here.
I stopped watching Real World after Seattle, though I came back for the first New Orleans series before basically abandoning the franchise. A couple of years ago, the nostalgia bug hit me and I downloaded a bunch of the classic seasons (2-6) to watch, of which S2 was the first time I got to watch the entire season from start to finish.Multiple seasons of “The Real World” on MTV.
Especially when they moved to places like Cancun, France and Portland.
