I think you are correct, i.e. the question was about watching acts of shirk and kufr. The question is only indirectly related to your question, but I thought I'd post it anyway. If watching acts of shirk and kufr on television is not shirk and kufr in itself, then how can watching other programs which don't contain shirk and kufr (which are still 100000% haraam) be, in itself, shirk and kufr? I hope that is clear.
