I have to agree with you and as much as I hate to admit it, my daughter loves Barney. I let her watch it because it is teaching her how to count, ABC's and how to interact. I find that most programs, like yo gabba gabba, have absolutely NO point to them. They do not teach anything, and the shows are just a bunch of dancing around with characters that you can barely understand. I feel that shows like this will only harm children and hinder their learning but that is just me..
