RSS icon Comments on The Dumbest Show on Television


Ummm yeah, I kind-of-accidentally watched last night and damn. Um. That was hot.

Also: I have never heard anyone on America's Next Top Model express themselves with even half the coherence and/or humor of some of those models. So dumbest show? Not likely.

"Which one of these is not like the others? Which one of these just doesn't belong?"

Which one is Monica Crowley? I hate that chick. What happened to Tony Blankley?

It's depressing to see how eager some people are to be humiliated.

Dumbest show? Dumb yes, but come on anyone could name a few dumber ones. I'm not sure it would make the top five dumbest shows. In the top ten, yeh I would go wih that.

This show is great. I like how it has both men and women, and so far I like some of the contestants. I looove Perry, and a few of the girls are ok.

In my opinion ANTM is just stale and needs to try something new. Tyra is a much better host than Niki Taylor and Tyson Beckford (soooo hot!) are, though.

Caught one episode. The models on this show, at least, have a much better chance of doing something more than showing up in an occasional Crunk & Disorderly blurb. I thought these guys/gals were much hotter than the bland mall girls on America's Next Top Model.

It's terrible, a little better than A Moment of Truth or whatever that show is called. Strangercrombie models and photos kick the shit out of anything that comes out of MMAS.

Posted by Deacon Seattle | January 25, 2008 10:49 AM

Useless, yes but three of the boys are deliciously gorgeous!!!

Posted by YO | January 25, 2008 10:50 AM

This looks like "Make Me a Porn Star." Weird. Aren't supermodels supposed to be sorta classy or something? "High fashion" and shit? Ah, who cares.

".the dumbest show after McLauglin Group" Grrrrr... Those are fightin' words Dan, fightin' words!!!! Grrrrrrr!!!! Snarl!!

it is pretty awful. that guy on the left in the bottom photo is pretty hot. but not hot enough to watch the show.

Posted by brandon | January 25, 2008 10:53 AM

Ok, granted there's no actual nudity in those photos, but it's not something I'd want so prominently on screen if a coworker walked by. Please, put things like that behind a link or after the jump, and tag 'em as NSFW.

Yuh, pass.

Posted by *gong* | January 25, 2008 11:00 AM

I haven't seen it, but now I kinda want to.

Posted by Greg | January 25, 2008 11:05 AM

Did you see the part where the photographer gave the two girls a banana to pose with? A banana?? So fucking lame. This is a bad show. But worse is Celebrity Rehab. Who wants to watch a pathetic old guy going through the DT's for an hour straight? I'm throwing my tv out till the writers strike is over. Or till Lost comes back on.

We don't need no stinkin' writers!

The future is here.

Posted by CCSea | January 25, 2008 11:15 AM

I don't know, those pictures could be pretty interesting if someone photoshopped them into scenes from a George Romero movie...

Make Me The Undead!

If you just turn the sound off, it's fine.

Posted by Gitai | January 25, 2008 11:26 AM

At least they have boy models. LET'S LIVE SLOG IT!

Posted by SeattleBrad | January 25, 2008 11:34 AM

I'd tap Casey's ass... (Or Perry's for that matter...)

Posted by You_Gotta_Be_Kidding_Me | January 25, 2008 11:36 AM

Dan, I think it could be much improved with some Tim Gunn cameos, scrutinizing their poses and generally lending the air of gravitas a fine show like this deserves.

Posted by OklaHomo | January 25, 2008 11:41 AM

Dan you are the world's greatest chicken hawk! Thank you for posting these!

Posted by Tally Sellvalles | January 25, 2008 11:44 AM

No wonder THEY hate us.

Posted by Sargon Bighorn | January 25, 2008 11:56 AM

DAMN! I haven't watched it yet, but if they have pretty boys making out, I'm certainly going to watch it now!

Posted by Missy Miss | January 25, 2008 12:08 PM

That pose is... I just don't know, it makes you look frumpy. You really need to make this work.

Now excuse me, I am going to appear on Top Chef and discuss the presentations on the next Quick Fire Challenge. Carry on.

Posted by Tim Gunn | January 25, 2008 12:27 PM

Ben and Perry: straight or just straight-acting? Both are just nummy. And I'm hooked.

Posted by Spoogie | January 25, 2008 12:43 PM

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I saw the dumbest show on TV at a friend's house the other day. I think it was called Funniest Whacked Out Videos. It was a very small step away from Ouch My Balls.

I've never appreciated TV writers more.

Posted by Lauren | January 25, 2008 12:43 PM

Agreed-- at least it's not as bad as Moment of Truth. I wish I had that 20 minutes of my life back. At least the people on Make Me a Supermodel are pretty... a little Tim Gunn would spice things up though.

Posted by SDizzle | January 25, 2008 1:29 PM

#6: Agreed.

Yes, I've been suckered in, at least a little bit. The models seem more high-fashion than ANTM and I like the fact that they include both genders. Only this particular episode was about sexy modeling, unfortunately.

Posted by me | January 25, 2008 2:13 PM

Those boys are hot!

Posted by Phil | January 25, 2008 3:21 PM

They should call it Make Me a Sandwich.

Posted by julie | January 25, 2008 3:44 PM

I LOVE the McLaughlin Group! Best yelling/arguing on television. Why be a hater, Dan.

"When you hear my voice, RELENQUISH!"

Posted by grace | January 25, 2008 5:11 PM

@11: Well, the photo on the top and the one on the bottom certainly look like they could be porn. The first picture could be soft-core lesbian porn, and that last one looks like it could be soft-core gay porn.
Clearly, the guy with the buzz cut in that bottom photo is a Top. I mean, just look at how he's grabbing the other guy's hair!

Posted by Anna | January 25, 2008 7:51 PM

No (especially since I don't reside in the States) but that last photo is just about enough to tempt me.

Posted by Donovan | January 25, 2008 10:45 PM

Excuse me, EXCUSE ME! McLaughlin Group is some of the best television around. Take it back, Dan.

Posted by Stephanie | January 26, 2008 9:37 AM

This show is the most delicious guilty pleasure since Kid Nation. Tyson Beckford is hilarious- arrogant, kind of mean, awkward, sexy, and charming at once. And my Perry (the top in the gay pic) is the only man on television whose hotness can rival Chris Meloni. He broke his foot and then waxed philosophical: "Sometimes you gotta play hurt." He LICKED Casey's face, commenting later that it was "salty." I love him so.
