Not enough Skeptic TV shows.
I'm going to be honest I used to love and I mean LOVE ghost, alien, and psychic shows. I absent over them feeling that they held the truth to the supernatural. But then I found Penn & Tellers Bullshit. That show made me much more skeptical, and looking deeper into some of their clams I found it harder to believe in the old shows that I held so prominently.

I've been searching for some other Skeptical shows but I finding there are so few.

I mostly only know of Bullshit! 19
James Randi Psychic Investigator
Conspiracy Road Trip

But it feels like a really short list if you compare to the multitudes of Ancient Alien, Finding Bigfoot, Most Haunted etc etc. type shows that can be found.

Why aren't there more skeptical shows?

Or is there a hidden treasure troth that i'm not aware of?

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Instead of skeptical shows, you might find science shows fulfilling.

PBS has Nova, Nature, Secrets of the Dead, Nova ScienceNOW, and many specials.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Not enough Skeptic TV shows.
Adam Ruins Everything is kinda fun. Not your typical form of skepticism, but he uses facts to debunk common misconceptions, while poking fun at the fact that regular folks don't exactly appreciate it when you do.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Make one.

Only if you're my cynical side kick.

Plus I don't really have the capital to start anything like that. I've been trying for the last 8 years to get my cartoon show off the ground and it hasn't been going well.

You need a producer.

Make a skeptical cartoon, fill little minds with critical thinking skills before the church gets a hold of them. Thumbsup

RE: Not enough Skeptic TV shows.
Make a hardcore anti-theist cartoon, fill little minds with Hitchens quotes. I'm sure their parents will love your show Cool

"Mommy, I wanna watch the one where Binky marries the woman he raped, but then he stones her to death after he finds out that she's slept with other women."
"Ooooh, sweetie you love that one so much. Okay, but we'll wait until daddy brings your sister home from daycare, so we can all watch together."

Maybe I will. I'll post some short strips on here.
