You Americans and your TELEVISION! I feel out of touch in this topic, this is how I feel.
Not all "Americans" do nothing but watch TV, but at least we know how to spell "fell". :P
But seriously folks, has anyone ever stopped to wonder that maybe they're doing this on purpose? Drama and controversy does nothing but increase ratings, you getting all worked up and pissed off enough to post a bulletin or two about it means you're either watching their shows, or paying more attention to them than you used to. I'm not really a fan of TV in general, but this is just classic misdirection intended on getting you to watch more TV. I'm not judging anyone for watching TV, or choosing how they waste their own time, hell I'm posting on a newgrounds forum. But this is just another classic example of the media creating garbage and the sheep who follow it, just like "Jersey Shore". The show probably would have failed horribly, but since everyone and their mother is "boycotting it" more people are watching it. If you want either of them to go away, just turn off the TV.
