They want to but, the consumption of regressive shows is high. Who are these people who are watching it? We ask why television shows are made in such a manner. I have producer, and writer friends who want to make better content, but channels tell them 'nobody is watching your show. Why do I sell content that's not being sold.' People like to watch women in certain light and regressive shows."
