I found out recently that a good friend of mine won't miss an episode of "Teen Mom."
Me = perplexed. I don't know the demographics of the "Teen Mom" audience, but I doubt a highly intelligent 27-year-old with a penchant for political history and JFK memorabilila is the "Teen Mom" target audience.
But then I think about all the drivel I've consumed in the past ten years, and I understand.
Besides the shows I believe still stand the test of time ("Buffy," "My So Called Life," "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman") I've watched some really, really bad TV.
Currently, there's "Jersey Shore." So many of my friends watch this show, so I'm ALMOST unashamed.
But would they judge me if they knew my love for "America's Next Top Model?" What about "Toddlers and Tiaras?"
I watched both of those shows obsessively.
My biggest confession:
I've seen every episode of "One Tree Hill." I KNOW. This is the show they clip on "The Soup" because at one point last season, villain Dan looks on as a dog EATS the donor heart for which he's been waiting months.
Seriously. Here's the clip:
