Yes, it’s a reoccurring theme on this blog: TV.
But I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about the shows even I can’t watch. Me. I am a tv-aholic. But even I have standards.
If you routinely watch the following shows, could you explain their appeal?
1) Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. This show is apparently a spin off of another show I can’t bear to watch, Toddlers & Tiaras. I watched the first three minutes of the “pilot” out of curiosity as I had seen people tweeting about it this week. OMG. It’s shameful. The fact that people like this exist make me worried. If anyone outside the US watches this show, I’m worried they will think the rest of the country is like this. The mom is 32 and has 4 daughters. Her 17 year old daughter is pregnant. This 32 year old is going to be a grandma at MY AGE. And that’s just the beginning…
2) Bill O’Reilly (or any other talking head, regardless of political affiliation).
3) Suze Orman. That woman gives terrible financial advice.
4) The Good Wife. I compare this phenom to doctors that can’t watch ER or Grey’s Anatomy. This show, along with other lawyer shows like Harry’s Law, is so wrong on so many points of law that I can’t sit back and enjoy it.
What shows can’t you stand? I am sure many of my favorites are on your list!
