The comedian admitted on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet that she does watch The Bachelor but only because she feels she "can handle it".
"I'll tell you what's offensive: these shows that are on television, on ABC during primetime," Silverman quipped. "[It's] 25 women in JC Penney prom dresses, fully grown, going, 'He took us to a castle!' No he didn't. Producers procured a castle! And there's 25 of you - that's how special you aren't!"
Silverman went on to insist that shows like The Bachelor do not encourage women to carry themselves with respect.
"I think, 'Wow, some young girl is watching this, and there should be a warning saying this is not acceptable behaviour'. The biggest thing that a woman should realise is that there is not just one slot for a woman in any given thing," she explained.
"I think that's something that society - men and women both - have enforced. It's in the ether that one woman's success can only come at another woman's failure."
The Bachelor recently wrapped its 16th season, which saw Ben Flajnik propose to Courtney Robertson in the finale.
