TLC is Down With More Polygamy

... I'm proud of you guys, really I am. Community's Halloween episode, which was hilarious (I'm assuming, because I haven't actually watched it), was the highest rated episode of the comedy since last January. 5.7 million viewers and a 2.4 rating among adults? Not bad at all! [The Live Feed]

... Showtime is making a show about a self-centered woman who craves attention by writing a blog about her sexy exploits and whining about men. At least that's what I got out of it.

Yeesh! [Deadline Hollywood]

The woman who writes that Boycrazy blog is just plain crazy and boys should be the least of her problems.

I don't know what happened to TV and good programming. This stuff is all junk for the most part. It is funny how channels change, TLC as you said, MTV which doesn't even play music anymore, even VH1 has changed.

Seems to me that 4 women who would allow themselves to be duped in this fashion, pretty much deserve what they (don't) get. I am very sorry to hear about James MacArthur. "Take a well deserved break, Danno"!
