    NO way! I would rather watch Regis Philbin do his show naked, (believe me you don't want to see that) I saw him at the gym once!

    I'd choose him too - especially over what's her name. "Octomom" is all I can remember - or care to.

    Well hold on to that TV remote control because they have already started auditioning kids for "The Michael Jackson Story!"

    As Meg says television (generally) pisses me off.

    There are three shows I watch regularly: The Vicar of Dibley (PBS reruns from the England), Showtime's True Blood, and Nurse Jackie. In my view that's TV worth watching. But two of those show are pay channel programs.

    With regard to the Octomom (so-named) Nadia Suleman? This is one very bizarre woman. I could see this coming as the media catapulted her to quasi-stardom from having all those babies.

    It should come as no surprise to anyone that the woman wants to make $$ from her "efforts". No I won't watch.

    The Early Show this morning did a segment where Paul Petersen (child actor advocate and once star of The Donna Reed Show) has filed - along with Gloria Allred :rolleyes:- a lawsuit against the exploitation of these infants.

    When this sort of thing becomes the sort of "stuff" people find enthralling (along with this John and Kate crap) it occurs to me it's a pretty sad statement about what grabs the attention of the general American audience.

    To date no network has picked up the show.

    I'm a glutton for punishment.:redface: I may watch an episode or 2, just so I can be specific in my disdain for her when I blog about it here. :biggrin1:
