There are really TV programs that don't show good influence to viewers. Sometimes it is stupid and not good to be aired on a national television especially when a program is making fun of a person's disability.

From the comments above, "Sometimes it is stupid and not good to be aired on a national television especially when a program is making fun of a person's disability."
Then don't watch. This is the joy of television, movies and books. If you don't like them, you can turn them off, walk out or put them down.
This essay (of sorts) is a breakdown of different stereotypes that show up on a variety of television shows. To insinuate that one or all of the archetypes listed isn't acceptable for television is more of a reflection on a person perspective of offensive pop culture.
Our author traced these stereotypes back to the 50s. This isn't new news.
