Today's Kids Shows

My 7 year old daughter loves watching shows like Suite Life on Deck & Jessie. What bothers me is that her favorite character always seems to be whoever has the worst attitude and thinks they control everything. Now my daughter is starting to act like these characters. Growing up, we watched shows like Andy Griffeth & Little House on the Prairie. Those shows show kids respecting their parents and learning valuable life lessons. No one at our house has attitudes like the kids on these shows so I am pretty sure that's where she's getting it from. Would it be going too far to no longer allow her to watch shows like these?

maybe just cut down on tv time at first slowly reduce it over time or to just certain days of course she is going to copy the bossy ones on them shows but have a talk with her and explain that it is just a tv show, if her attitude is becoming a bit too much then i would stop her watching them.
maybe try and get her interested in other programs like on the discovery channel like whats her favourite animal etc..get her interested in that.
