CBS's upcoming series Salvation looks boring and depressing as heck. What they SHOULD say as a reaction to "there's an asteroid that's about to hit the Earth in 186 days" is "Whoo-Hoo let's party!" And then play the late band R.E.M.'s song "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" immediately after. FFS CBS why so damn serious?
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

Thanks for the welcome aka ron!
 
To be quite honest, I've never heard of this grizzly bear incident.  All I can say is that a wild animal is not a friend and you respect and admire wildlife from a distance.  There is NO WAY IN HELL I would befriend a mute swan let alone a grizzly bear!  BTW, that coroner or doctor seemed a little off his rocker......Confused

Unfortunately, Jerry Springer and Maury have been renewed through the end of the 2017-18 season. Why are they still on? Do people actually care about whose the baby's daddy, lie detectors and fights with strippers? Steve Wilkos also should have been gone years ago. At least he yells at aholes to get off his stage, unlike the other two shows where the hosts don't usually take any action.
On the other hand, when Maury's 2017-18 season wraps up, he will be 79 years old. OK, what's the point of an old senior citizen giving a DNA result?
My local CW station is clearing a double run of Jerry Springer starting next week. He hasn't been in this market for years, and it sure was a sigh of relief. Bad, bad idea.

Shows like The Chew need to go - who wants to listen to several people whining on and on about some issue that no one cares about but them? Stupid shows need to go like America's Funniest Videos - they aren't funny just stupid. Things like The Bachelor, Survivor, Big Brother or anything else were not interesting beyond the first show. Kid shows where teens or kids are investigating something are boring - who wants to watch kids playing grown up? Jerry Springer should have been gone a long time ago.

This show had ONE JOB and didn't get it done as Abbie and Ichabod now have separate love interests. A show that had great potential but never lived up to it thanks to the wizards of smart over at Fox.

TOTALLY AGREE...we watched religiously and it seemed smart and stylish..then it went nearly incomprehensible and needlessly like Grimm, wasting any character development for introducing dumb witches and unconnected demonic presences...any charm was thrown out the window.

Another reality show they keep hawking on us and I will refuse to watch: Toddlers & Tiaras. Seriously. Why in the F__K is this still on TLC?!!! It's a horrible show - dressing up 3 year olds to look like Kardashians, rappers, and other celebrities. Absolute bulls--t.
I can't stand those Gypsy Wedding shows either. My relatives had to watch an episode of it and I wanted to puke.

Masterchef, Iron Chef, Hell's Kitchen, all need to go away. We've had our share of Gordon Ramsey f-bombs already. However, I do like Kitchen Nightmares and Bar Rescue (with Jon Taffer). It's amazing to see how disgusting restaurants and bars look. You never know what it's like in the kitchen or refrigerator of your favorite restaurant. I've seen episodes of Kitchen Nightmares where cockroaches were running wild on the kitchen floor and on the plates, and rat droppings behind equipment. Just some wild examples.

Enough with the Alaska shows. Unless you're on the run from the law or ducking the tax man, who wants to build a home in the middle of nowhere?

I sure do miss As the World Turns and All My Children. In response to The Talk and The Chew...I'd rather see soaps in that hour again. My relatives were big ATWT fans.

Bachelor is ridiculous, isn't it? Last night was the "Bachelor in Paradise" premiere, and Chris Harrison actually kicked out a contestant for being disrespectful to hotel staff and other contestants.
Would have been better to cancel the season right then and there. Even a Roseanne or Home Improvement rerun is better than these Bachelor shows. And it's gone on 13 f----n years?!

Oh, and Finding F'n Bigfoot. They still haven't found "bigfoot." Until I see one of these so called explorers mauled by a real bigfoot on camera, I won't watch.
This season's Big Brother sure is boring. The producers (notably Alison Grodner) sure cast a wide variety of great people, didn't she? Hell no. Just a bunch of 20-somethings, with a few returning contestants from previous seasons. I wonder if she roots for a certain person secretly. I remember the first season had a roofer named "Chicken George," a politician, an exotic dancer, and a bunch of oddball people.

There's this new rap reality series on Lifetime now. The Rap Game. Absolute BS. I miss the old days of Lifetime, when it used to be women's programming, lots of reruns, and the pairings of Shop 'til You Drop and Supermarket Sweep.

And you know why I watch so many older shows? Angry

Confused

 
After 11 years of "WHAT WAS THAT??!!" and "WHO SAID THAT???!!!", it seems Jason will be reuniting with Grant and going back to their Roto-Rooter business and giving up the 'Ghosty Hunters' franchise, this year. Yeeeaaaaa...gotta give up the ghost, sometime - especially if you find you are asking the same ol'stupid questions you were ten years before, doncha know...so, it's back to some dumpy little community somewhere in Rhode Island that nobody's ever heard of. 
The 11th (and final) season starts tonight.

How many people are all geared up and standing on their toes for the final season of bad reality(?) ghosty crap, starring people you will never hear of again and will totally forget by next year.

My list is as follows:
ALL of those god-awful Alaska gold hunting shows
Dr.Phil and Dr.Oz (Idiots hawking fake medical advice at the general public)
The whole history channel (pawn stars is garbage, American Pickers is okay, and all the stupid fake documentaries on religious stuff are cancer)
Pit-bulls and parolees (the most boring show to have ever existed - Animal Planet PLEASE bring back animal cops!)
I am Jazz (The show is okay but the medical advice given to transgender folks is really shoddy)
Steve Wilkos (this guy is a total twit)
The Talk on CBS (Bunch of ex-celebrities spewing pop-culture and alt-med bullsh*t at a camera for an hour)
NASA's unexplained files  (Quite alot of religious ufo-cult bullsh*t for a channel called "Science")
Say Yes To The Dress (The television equivalent of running into a swarm of mosquitos)
Blue Bloods (Show has outstayed it's welcome for many years, also really racist and boring)
Anything related to the Kardashians or about Jenner
The Bachelor and related tripe (People putting themselves through mental trauma inorder to make money and to possibly win over some not attractive girl or some idiot steroid using jock)

It's a cash cow for CBS. Les Moonves loves it because that's his wife hosting it. CBS gets boatloads of $$$ from the advertisers and the people who pay for the 24-7 live feeds of BB.
It is a guilty pleasure for me, as is The Amazing Race (whenever the teams aren't screaming at each other). I hate Survivor.

Did I mention Naked & Afraid? That show needs to be burned to the ground. Why does Discovery Channel air it? Shouldn't this be on Cinemax's "After Dark" lineup? Then viewers can see nudity.
Anything on TruTV can go away too. Impractical Jokers, Hardcore Pawn, the whole bunch. I'd rather see "In Session" again and live trials, ala Court TV.

The Odd Couple can go away too. It is boring to watch and not funny. I will take any Charlie Sheen Two and a Half Men, Seinfeld or Big Bang Theory rerun any day over that crap.

Love & Hip Hop, Botched, Catfish, Kardashians, it can ALL go away!

any doctor/hospital show that all have the SAME EXACT premise.....a rebel surgeon (usually a woman) who bucks the system and does things her way! And will somehow never lose her license or get sued out of the field or fired LOL
She also will have at least one scene per episode unprofessionally making out with a coworker in a closet or small room somewhere instead of working. 

also as an alternate, switch "doctor/hospital" with "judge" or "detective". Same cliches.
