It's like being forced to watch a massive reality T.V. show.
Except you're not forced... Sure it's mainstream, but it can be somewhat ignored. It's similar to how Christmas is literally everywhere in the U.S. around winter, and being Jewish I couldn't care less about Christmas. Christmas decorations pop up in every store, my friends constantly talk about Christmas, every advertisement is Christmas themed, etc. but I sure as hell am not forced to pay attention or give a hoot about it. It's frustrating as hell, but I do my best to ignore it, same with politics.
