The most shocking thing on Big Brother 17 is the smoking that they allow. You do not see it on any other tv show. Cigarette commercials were banned from tv in 1970 and since then actual smoking disappeared from soap operas, dramas, police shows, etc.. You would still see Someone smoking on a tv movie but never on a sitcom or talk show. the last Person that smoked on a talk show was probably Johnny Carson and that was early in His career.
So, yes, I found it shocking that Jason (the small gay guy) has been smoking on every episode. Jeff was also smoking but He got voted off Wednesday, the 16th.
Does CBS not feel any obligation to young viewers? Do they not think there are young gay People that might look up to Jason and see Him smoking and think that is cool?
