BEIJING—China's satellite broadcasters have eliminated more than two-thirds of prime-time entertainment programs such as dating and reality shows to comply with tough new government restrictions, as Beijing increasingly seeks to rein in cultural trends it finds problematic.

The state-run Xinhua news agency said on Tuesday that satellite broadcasters have winnowed the number of entertainment shows aired during prime time to 38 from 126. A new rule that came into effect on Sunday limits the number of entertainment programs the broadcasters air to two each week and a maximum of 90 minutes daily between 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. [...]

We can start with Jersey Shores every reality show ever made. While we're at it, we can make it high treason for a channel with the word "history" in it's title to have shows that no longer contain anything even passingly confusable with history.

Sounds like they need to teach more Western history in China. "Bread and circuses" doesn't work if there's no circuses.

China is like the democrat party east. They keep an iron grip on the culture because it's the key to keeping their slaves in line. Same reason the democrats here have worked so hard to dominate education news and entertainment.
