this is about the only show worth watching on TV anymore. If you haven't seen it you have been missing a very entertaining show. It is our favorite and even watching reruns is still better than most of the shows on the cox lineup.

I resisted watching this show for some time, but one night after a few Jack and Cokes I watched a episode. This is one of the most entertaining programs on TV. It kind of reminded me of the people who sit around in a pink cafe in Springdale drinking Coffee, it's just for laughs.

This show, like the other "reality" shows is as fake as can be. You might as well watch reruns of the Beverly Hillbillies or HeeHaw. Everything is scripted and the cameras just happen to be in the right place at the right to time catch something that is supposed to be spontaneous. It only takes about 5 minutes to tell everything happens on cue. It's all about the merchandising, as this article uncovers.
