I never watched Smith and no it didn't sound too good but I don't get the point of pulling a show after 3 episodes.

I'd like to know what celebrity/weight loss/point-at-something-and-win-money reality show takes its place.

Meanwhile, Jericho keeps on truckin.' Jericho is soooo dumb... the acting is horrible, the characters are idiots, the plot is full of holes and ridiculous twists.... but I'm hooked just because I want to know what's going to happen!

I guess it's on tonight, but screw that, Mets/Cards!




I agree about Jericho being dumb with the acting and plot line, but it has had me hooked the first few weeks. But I think the hook is coming more from the mysterious St. Louis cop that I have a feeling has something to do with the bombs more then anything. Oh well, Pujols will be beating the Mets tonight, so that will be much more important.

I just wish NBC would stop airing Deal or No Deal on thursdays and move The Office back to its old time slot. I've missed the beginning of three episodes now because I'm still wrangling my one-year old to get her to bed.

Deal or No Deal I'm quite certain was spawned by Satan. It's just a stupid, stupid show.

Deal or No Deal is perhaps the greatest indication of our nation's brain-dead stupidity. Now, now, I don't want to step on any toes, I know some cafe-ers enjoy the show, but I can only hope an assume it's a guilty pleasure rather than a proud, intellectual exercise. Then again, many people scoff at the idea that television should be, in any way, intellectual or even go so far as to persuade you to think, but that's simply a debate for the merits of television as entertainment or it's contribution to America's brain drain.

Deal or No Deal; that is the question, and the only question which pits contestants with no skills whatsoever to point at suitcases like zombies and grunt as Howie Mandel attempts to speak ever-more slowly in order to invent a non-existent air of suspense while leading into a slew of idiotic commercials that advertisers scramble for because Deal or No Deal is the ultimate example of a "quantity, not quality" show whose express purpose is to maintain viewers eyeballs so that they can be influenced to buy their next truck from Chevy.

Whew!

Anyway, if this show is any indication, it means people want more mindless entertainment (sometimes for two hours at a time) in the tradition of other idiocies like Fear Factor and Joe Millionaire. It seems public interest in shows like 24, LOST, The Office, and anything on HBO is nothing more than a ruse, as money talks, creativity walks and people would rather go to bed with an empty head rather than questions of the practicality vs. the morality of the characters in a complex, continuing series.

I'm ashamed. Damn you Howie Mandel.

The families are great on Deal or No Deal though. They had this new jersey family on and man were they the biggest freak shows ever!

This is nice though:

Make it "Greedy people with bad math skills, randomly opening boxes" and you got yourself a deal.
