Re: TV is running out of ideas...

Don't know. I don't even watch TV at all, because most of the shows are pointless and the money being used to make those shows could be elsewhere to feed hungry children or create jobs. OR something productive at least.

Sarah Palin's Alaska = Waste of time and money

But the good thing about it is that you get to learn about Alaska. (something youtube or wikipedia could do.)

When kluang finds you creepy and wrong then you are beyond horrible.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe.

Being Malaysian is about driving in a German car to an Indian restaurant for an Indonesian food, then travelling home, grabbing a Pakistani kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV. Because we have no originality.

lolwut? I can't even... how could...but... you're so stupid. Do you even know why people make TV shows? To make money. You're suggesting that spending time and money to make even more money is a "waste," but spending time and money to provide something for free is not? Holy fuck.

Re: TV is running out of ideas...

But that's just it - why is Palin this popular?! She's a moron! I half expect here tromping through the Alaskan wilderness is just an add-on to an expedition to determine where the oil pipelines should go.

Oh, and a presidential run. That, too.

But still... why?

I have all but given up on regular television. Still watch the Daily Show, the few occasions Jon is not on vacation. Along with some other miscellaneous programs. With the web however and the ability to stream shows to my living room, I am awfully close to doing away with cable TV altogether.

My video watching has been reduced to Hulu, ForaTV, adultswim, and Leo Laporte's Twit cast. I miss TechTV. The Screensavers was my show before Leo left.

Cable's a waste when you can get free satellite tv.

Re: TV is running out of ideas...

OK, yeah - stupid people can be popular. But look at the context and it is a bit more damning than that.

First picture - rich father, does nothing to but be an embarrassment. I'm guessing schadenfreude. Who knows. Some people probably think she's attractive.

Second picture - no clue. That one boggles the mind. And reminds me of something else that amused me this week:
http://imgsrv.gocomics.com/dim/?fh=6...edb5cbd4a1d18c

Third picture: had a mildly successful music career, so could be said to have some talent, despite being stupid.

Sarah Palin - a one time elected official who is probably on the tip of many Rebulican/Tea Party tongues for their next Presidential Candidate!! If we are lucky, we won't see any of the other three run for political office, but the fact that there is this type of popularity behind Palin is flabbergasting. Particularly when you see how they turned on Obama.

I know... I expect too much.

I just recently moved out of my parent's house and simply didn't bother to get cable in the first place. So far all that I miss is being able to absent mindedly flip through the channels while eating, and watching the odd Discovery show.

Sarah Palin needs some young meat. Mine. But on topic I expect this to be cancelled after a few episodes. Fuck regular TV.

And many more. It seems some TV producers think that negative popularity is as good as the earned popularity, being the main reason why shitty shows are proliferating.
Again, I don't see Sarah Palin's popularity as negative. A lot of people believe in and support her.

I think it is a one season thing. I.e. Keep her name out there, show some touchy feely sides to her, show her in nature to hide her stances on minding, drilling and destroying the environment, end it all just in time for the beginning of the Republican primaries.

Dang, I'm answering my own question. OK, so if this isn't some sort of publicity campaign stunt... why else would this be on TV?

Also, Palin 2012... oh shit. The Mayans WERE on to something.
