Because many of my favorite programs are STILL not back up and running, I have found myself in front of an inordinate number of game shows recently. My thoughts are as follows:
* Deal or No Deal - What the HELL people, haven't you all heard of probability? It NEVER ceases to amaze me the way people keep picking and Picking and PICKING those stupid cases, as the number of opportunities for success "on the right" dwindle. And they're urged on by the freaking crowd who are apparently rejects from Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader. If I was there I would stand up like the dork I am and scream, "Do you REALIZE that you only have like a .00008% shot of walking out of here with anything more than $1000? Take the deal you MORON."
* 1 versus 100 - Man, talk about an easy way to win money (assuming of course you have more than 7 brain cells to rub together.) The questions they ask are ABSURDLY easy (assuming of course you haven't been in a coma for the majority of your life.) Where do I sign up for this one?
* Celebrity Fit Club - Ok, not really a "game show" per se but I just need to say this - can SOMEONE (I don't care who) get Dustin Diamond OFF of my television? His antics (as viewed through previews and commercials ALONE) are totally ruining Saved By the Bell for me.
* Dancing With the Stars - Speaking of programs that aren't really game shows involving people that drive me nuts - Samantha Harris. Let's talk. Her total F up on live TV aside, she really REALLY bothers me. First of all, her hand gestures are beyond distracting. Second of all, Madonna called, she wants her man arms back. Third of all, I don't know I think I should stop this post now, the my trian of constructive thought has clearly derailed.
