She is a business woman and will give the people what they want.
So see, you already one happy Indian there already.
Best way to enjoy these serials (if you really must watch them that is and if you have a bunch of loony friends around) is to turn off the volume and feed in your own dialogues.. gives a new lease on creativity.

you are comparing oprah show with saans bhahu serials?
atleast in oprah she tries to solve real life problems
& it is a talk show which is far more different than those saans bahu serials

there is a defference between being funny because being rediculously stupid & doing some monkey business
& being funny because of talent

one thing seriously I don't get is why don't indian tv producers use concept of "season" ?
e.g. one season runs for six months then next six months its something else
instead they keep on adding generations after generations upto some thing like celebrating 3000th episdoe

I didn't equate the two. I'm simply saying that Oprah is as much about glycerine as the Saas-Bahu serials. I don't understand why a whole bunch of people in the studio as audience cry in unison for someone's problem. In any case i am not a fan of either Oprah or the Ekta Kapoor products.

whats wrong in being ridiculous and silly if it takes your mind off other troubles and makes you laugh ! or are you saying being ridiculous cannot be funny ?

i prefer anyday being ridiculous and laugh - maybe i live up to my nick !

and yeah my view on oprah - idiotic !
