Why people want to watch dysfunctional people then praise it is goofy goofy goofy.
First, I assume people watch shows with dysfunctional people/families, at least in part, because it makes them feel better about their own situation. Second, one of the better ones I've seen was the movie August: Osage County
-- a bunch of A-list actors (including Meryl Streep) as a truly messed up family after the death of the family patriarch. Third, one of my sisters got me to watch Yellowstone. It was much better than I was expecting. Yeah, it is a goofy drama a lot of the time, but it has enough good moments to make it worth watching, at least IMHO. Jimmy's hospital visit from his new girlfriend was one of them.
