"skewing the norm," this idea was mentioned in a blog post earlier and I find it very intriguing. Shows like Roseanne pioneered a movement that elicit conversation about what is normal. The discussion at the time of Roseanne was, 'is this really the norm/reality?' Today, followed by the ongoing paradigm shift in mass acceptance, shows like honey boo boo are pushing the limits. Though primarily profit-driven, reality television does a great job of raising the question, just what is normal? the way I see it is a question of the chicken and the egg. which one came first, was it the demand or the supply of such stereotypical widespread notions?!
