Show glorifying our boozing is a disgrace

In this day and age when our culture is facing real and very serious problems from alcohol through massive binge drinking and underage drinking, why does TV3 insist on promoting and glorifying our ridiculous culture of alcohol abuse by showing this programme 'Boozed Up Irish Abroad'?
The amount that Irish people drink should be something shameful, not something we wear around like a badge to promote ourselves. The programme description this week read: "The first programme in a series exposing the antics of Irish holidaymakers in Crete and Majorca to discover whether their reputation for drinking and partying hard is well earned."
Campaigns like drinkaware.ie are going out of their way to try and save our society from drowning in alcohol and to prevent our current crop of teenagers and young people from becoming complete drunken wasters and alcoholics.
