Dancing with the Stars (As if any real star wants to take part in an amature contest)
America’s Got Talent (As if we need to remind outsiders were not all imbasils.)
So you think you can dance (even more amazing, you think we care)
It’s the Andy Warhol phenomina “Everyone should be famous for 15
Minutes.” Do we really need this logo to come to pass? Of course amatures are cheap. It doesn’t cost as much to build drama with attention starved smucks. Just aim the camera, they smucks do all the rest. And they work cheap. Try to get a high paid movie or TV star to spend months on an island competing with other back stabbing twits. How many famous personalities is Jerry Springer able to humiliate on his show? None. But the common smucks who will never have their name spoken outside their home will go on TV while their wives/girlfriends/brothers/mothers and what ever, make fools of them so they can be known to the public at large.
It’s cheap and the networks have embraced it. Crapy TV shows devoid of any real substance are the in thing right now and will be as long as people watch that garbage.
