Marry: Awful TV

I have a lot of stuff due next week which means I’ve been spending all my time procrastinating. Nothing helps me waste time more than awful television. If it’s not old re-runs Sabrina The Teenage Witch it’s the trashy ladies of The Bad Girls Club. I love quality programs and as soon as this week is over I will wonder what the hell I was thinking, but right now, I am enjoying the mind-numbing programming my boob-tube has to offer.

Bop: Adam Richman, Host of Man vs. Food**

Man vs. Food premiered this week on The Travel Channel. Host Adam Richman gets to travel to different cities across the country and take on some of America’s biggest food challenges. This week he was in Amarillo, TX where he hate a half pound burger with jalapenos and habenero sauce and a giant plate of chili fries. Then he learned how to make Chicken Fried Steak. All of this was to prepare for his food challenge: The Big Texan Steak Challenge. To win, Richman needed to eat a 72 ounce steak, a side salad, shrimp cocktail, baked potato and a roll in an hour or less. The best part about this show is that he’s not a competitive eater, just a guy who loves food…a lot. He plotted and stratagized and ended up finishing the challenge in about 30 minutes. It was borderline heroic…and made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. If that’s not someone worth bopping, then I obviously don’t know what love is.

Kill: Whoever thought of THIS.

They’re making pornogrpahic parodies of Married With Children and The Cosby Show. Nothing is sacred.

** I was this close to picking the Chicken Fried Steak as the winner of the Bop Award. This close. They sauteed it in clarified butter folks!
