We can only change what is being presented one person at a time. I do not watch trash. I am sure others feel the same way.

Not quite sure what that means, as it is the quintessential incomplete sentence. However, more apropos to the original intent of this thread, watching "trash TV" seems to b The Great American Pastime. Time and time again I see well written, thought-provoking programs fall by the wayside only to be replaced by yet more 'reality shows'– there seems to be a real love affair with rednecks these days (2015)! Whether it be the now defunct Honey BooBoo or good ol' boys hunting 'gators on the Bayou. I say that if someone needs to have subtitles when they are ostensibly speaking English, they don't belong on TV lol!
