Just as every meal doesn't have to be steak and caviar....every TV show one watches doesn't have to be some monumental comment on the human condition.
A little cheese now and then is perfectly fine. It's amazing how many like to always say such things are "beneath them" and hold their nose up in the
air...while they secretly sit back and laugh at America's Funniest Home Videos, or Cheaters, but then never admit it...
Yet, "Dancing with the Stars" is ranked as the number one and three show each week...(for both nights). Go figure. SOMEBODY is watching....
It isn't about the "stars"...most are "has-beens". It's the classic fish out of water angle. We like to see people we recognize in completely
different elements (and let's face it, we like to see those who've had success fail), and personally, the pro's (at least in Dancing) are gorgeous.
I'm not too impressed with this skating version though, and it will likely tank just like Fox's attempt at it did.
I watch more History, Discovery, and Learning Channel shows than probably anyone I know, and enjoy more cerebral shows like Fringe, The Event, LOST
(when it was on), and many others that most people feel "safe" in admitting they watch....but I like my cheese too, and make no apologies for it...
(and yep, Walking Dead and South Park are two of my favorites...did you see the Cthulu episodes recently? Hysterical...)
