" I think the biggest loser in all this just might be either The Amazing Race or Kid Nation ... if they did it to Markie-Mark, what's stopping them from doing it to Bruck?"
You know, irony was rampant on a field of hypocrisy at CBS today ...
On the same page announcing the network's decision to summarily dismiss its Pirate Master audience for the inconsequential number of demographic undesirables that they are, the trumpets were sounding to herald the latest award nominations for Jericho and The Amazing Race.
Embarrassment, I have to assume, is now a foreign concept there.
But then I knew that when the third CSI and Katie Couric (who should never be left unattended in the company of adults) hit the evening schedule.
So, I would certainly agree that there doesn't seem to be any ethical deterrent sufficient to stop them from doing what they will to consumers and producers alike. And that's why I have no intention of watching the first installment of Kids' Nation: it sounds far too suspiciously like a program that I would like. A lot.
I won't, spineless addict that I am, be able to resist The Amazing Race, should CBS decide to show a few installments just for the hell of it, or ...Survivor.
And that's the one that scares the dickens out of me. I am much too old to get along swimmingly with tattooed young ladies in jumpsuits and much too young to be sent home with an ankle bracelet and a gift certificate for the Scooter Store.
