The Scourge of Summer Television

I'm really scraping bottom in my television viewing of late. In the past 24 hours, I've tuned into both Scott Baio is 45 and Single and Rock of Love with Bret Michaels. The question begging to be asked is what's the story with VH1 making reality shows with all of Pam Anderson's exes? Tommy Lee's already dabbled in reality TV a couple times, so surely, Kid Rock is up next.

If Kid Rock gets his own reality show, I'm canceling my cable. I've got Time-Warner on speed dial just in case.

BTW: I could only stomach about 5 minutes of the Scott Baio show and found it self-serving and less real than your average "reality" show. Let's remember, these people are actors. As far as Rock School, that's a really good show. I like my traiin wrecks loud, drunk and willing to embarass themselves for a has-been.

Do you get USA and TNT? Some decent summer programming can be found there:

USA - Monk, Psych and Burn Notice
TNT - The Closer and Saving Grace

Otherwise, if I didn't like watching Angels' baseball, I wouldn't have much need for a TV

Yeah, VH1 has turned into a really crappy channel. It makes MTV look decent.

For me, it's just not summer without a RockStar series. Whatever happened to RockStar Supernova, eh? Although I did hear that Lukas Rossi married a porn star a few weeks back.

You all have GOT to check out "Mad Men". Its fookin' wonderful.

Its a new show.

Mad is short for Madison Ave and a take off of "ad" because the show is about Ad executives in a big New York firm in 1960.

The clothes, hairstyles, sexism, smoking and set decoration is spot on.

Its on AMC (American Movie Channel" and may have been produced by that channel because they sure are pushing it.

I've only seen one episode so far.

Really recommend it, even if just to see the clothes and hairstyles from those days.

I've been drifting more and more into just watching CNBC, CNN, and The Weather Channel.

Kid Rock is releasing a new album - what are the odds that it will be the WTF was I thinking album for someone in a few years/weeks/days?

I'm so out of touch with what most people seem to be watching. That is, of the group of blogs I read, several people seem to be on the same page in terms of what they watch and like. I'm more of a History Channel or local news guy.

Dan: don't feel left out. I love the History channel too.

If you have Showtime, check out Big Love. Can't get enough of those polygamist Mormans!

Big Love is my summer show.

Also, I can't believe I am admitting this, but I have, ever since I was young, watched AS THE WORLD TURNS. I watch it at night, when I get home. That is the great thing about soap operas, they never take a hiatus.

Oh, and they just added a homo storyline. I am sure the majority of viewers in the Midwest and South are finding it hard to stomach. To that I say, Wake Up!

I really hate the history channel. As a huge history buff (with a degree in it) for what ever that is worth, i have a difficult time with many of the documentaries shown on the history channel. I find many of them biased and lacking in true information. They spend too much time on Hitler as well.

When I want read history i get books on tapes from reliable sources.
