Roger Wilkos and Out!

I have long believed that those in charge of entertaining us and informing us on television and movie theaters have run out of ideas. My beliefs are always reconfirmed with each new fall TV schedule.

I will admit upfront that I have not seen any of the new shows. I believe it is the TV networks job to make me want to see these shows. So far, this has not happened.

Exhibit A.
The Steve Wilkos Talk Show (Syndicated - If you are lucky it wont be in your area.)
What? You've never heard of Steve Wilkos? A man so highly qualified to be transmitted into our homes and disperse his form of tough love. Steve Wilkos was the chief of security of ....... the Jerry Springer Show and a Chicago Police officer.
I saw a commercial where he threatened a guest with a baseball bat. This is why Phil Donahue is not on the air any longer.

Exhibit B.
Cavemen (ABC - They have you trapped.)
Have you ever seen those Geico commercials where the pitch line is, "So easy a caveman could do it."? Well, then you've seen the new sitcom Cavemen. Only now the commercial is 30 minutes long. I hope at least Geico does something creative with their advertising to reflect to show.

Exhibit C.
Miss Guided (ABC - They still have you trapped.)
All I will say about this, Produced by Ashton Kutcher.

Exhibit D.
Celebrity Apprentice (NBC - Check your local listings)
Didn't the viewing public already fire Trump last year? Now "hair-boy" thinks if he has celebrities, and I use that term loosely, on the show we will want him back.

How can one really blast a show they have not seen? I think the Geico cavemen are pretty humorous. It may not work for 30 minutes but then again nobody watched Seinfeld or Raymond in their first season either.

Easy, it's my blog. I can do anything I want.

Why? That's all I can say about any of those shows.
Oh well...the more crap they put on tv, the more time I spend online reading blogs ;)
