NBC Dating Shows

I wasted 2 hours of my life yesterday watching two really stupid shows on NBC. Apparently, the programming execs at the Pea-Cock network have decided to flood their summer schedule with dating shows. One is Age of Love, which stars unranked Australian Tennis player Mark Philippoussis who has to decide between 6 cougars in their 40's and 6 kittens in their 20's. The other show is Science of Love, which stars NFL bench-warmer Adam Johnson who has to decide between a girl he chooses on his own and a girl that "science" chooses for him.

Let's ignore the obvious fact that these shows are degrading to women and reinforce insecurities and stereotypes - because despite the fact that I often post about hot weather women and models, I actually do care about their well-being. The ridiculous thing is that some bag of douche actually gets paid to come up with this crap. How hard could it be to find some C-list athlete and pit desperate girls against each other who have nothing else going on for them other than the desperate hope to hook up with a C-list athlete? In the 5 minutes I've thought about this topic, I've come up with some other, equally awesome shows:

Alphabet of Love
A-cups vs. B-cups vs. C-cups vs. D-cups. Mouthful, handful, or two-handful?

Dance of Love
Las Vegas strippers vs. Atlanta strippers. Which group will put out the most for $20 bucks?

Labor of Love
Nurses vs. Stewardesses. Both professions are in the service industry, but who has the hotter uniforms?

Love of Grooming
Women who groom to 1970's standards vs. Women who groom to 1990's standards. Is it better to play on grass, or does grass not grow on playgrounds?

Fever of Love
Attractive looking Caucasian women vs. mediocre/below average looking Asian women. How extreme can yellow fever get?

Wait, so you're concerned about the well-being of all women? Or just the hot weather women and models? And Paris Hilton, where does she figure into all this? I'm confused...

Your obviously way to caught up into the Hollywood scene to have a decent opinion. Now I know why you blog and dont come up with tv show ideas. Both shows are great the problem is Mark has no personality but then you guys have that in common. Get off your couch and quit being lazy, you should just be called Asian hater, I like both shows.

dear anonymous-

thanks for the feedback - i really do appreciate all points of view, especially those in opposition to me. However, it is hilarious that you used the wrong "your" to start off your comment. clean that up, and I'll respect you in the morning.
