I was watching some late night ET and they were discussing the upcoming fall 2012 TV lineup. They were praising such terrible shows as Two Broke Girls and Two and a Half Men, and hating on my favorites, New Girl and Happy Endings. Seriously? Is this what we’ve come to? New Girl and Happy Endings consistently make me belly laugh every time I watch them. I tried watching Two Broke Girls and with the canned laughter, crass humor, bad acting and god awful one liners, I just couldn’t see the appeal.
Then again, in a society where reality tv reigns supreme, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. Disappointed in my fellow tv viewers? Yes. Surprised? Sadly, no.
I just hope that the networks will use their brains and won’t cancel two of my favorite shows.
