Well even brainless famous people should have some kind of common sense. I understand what you are saying , but they are still humans acting ignorant
on national television i.e. the Jersey Shore cast. It is inexcusable in my view, if you got nothing positive to say or do then don't say it or act
it. Your setting yourself up for failure. B&B redefines the ignorance that surrounds us in everyday life. Like I said it's my type of entertainment,
I'm way beyond the television set.
I'm talking up a wall here. You don't get what I am saying because you seem to think I am defending people on MTV. It doesn't matter WHO is on a TV
program what matters is WHO makes it happen.
You also don't seem to get that MTV producers and execs put these people on TV knowing that people like you will hate them. They know you will hate
them, they know you will talk about them, they know this will polarize people making casual fans into die-hards. Backlash and hype do more for
advertizing than every commercial and promo put together.
You are essentially doing MTVs work for them by talking about some stupid inconsequential people. Now they are going a step further and pandering to
people who hate their product. Don't you feel like they are insulting your intelligence? They are playing both sides, how can you not see how
deviously cynical this move is?
Lastly "setting themselves up for failure"? Are you kidding? Are you at all aware of how many people have made millions by acting like an idiot on
tv? That isn't failure that is a brilliant marketing strategy. Some people love you, others hate you they both talk about you acting like free
advertizing. Then your evil execs can launch a show bashing your show and make money off of your fans and haters alike.
Honestly anyone who will watch a show just to see other shows from the same network get dumped on has no concept of modern marketing tactics.
