This is television, that’s all it is. It has nothing to do with people, it’s to do with ratings! For fifty years, we’ve told them what to eat, what to drink, what to wear… for Christ’s sake…Americans love television. They wean their kids on it…They love game shows, they love wrestling, they love sports and violence. So what do we do? We give ‘em what they want! We’re number one, that’s all that counts…

The Running Man (1987) Directed by Paul Michael Glaser from a script by Stephen E. de Souza
