There might not be a TV personality more apt for Spike TV than Adam Carolla, and there might not be a subject matter more apt for the cable station than addressing crooked contractors in To Catch a Predator fashion.

So it should be of little surprise that the channel is marrying the two into a show called Catch a Contractor, in which crooked or shoddy contractors are called out for their work on TV. Though the cause is somewhat noble, this doesn’t sound like very compelling television, on par with the show that follows people around giving parking tickets in Philly.

This sounds like more a labor of love for Carolla, who has an interest in home improvement, and is likely carrying the scorn towards an unscrupulous contractor with him. In short, this sounds like a show we would only watch in marathon format if we were hungover and couldn’t find the remote.

Which is to say, it’s a perfect fit for Spike TV.

Adam Carolla, host of the The Adam Carolla Show podcast, is getting some attention after sharing his thoughts about the Occupy Wall Street movement. The epic, profanity-filled rant lambasts the protesters and casts a light on a new problem that Carolla has noticed America is facing.

“There’s something that’s come up in this country that didn’t used to exist. And that’s envy. We’re now dealing with the first wave of participation-trophy, empowered, I feel so good about myself, everybody’s a winner, there’s no losers … that’s who we’re dealing with now.”

Carolla is no stranger to controversy though. His penchant for making off-color, uninformed, blanket generalizations have angered several groups. Can you really even get upset at him though? Everyone knows that curly haired people are stupid.

I’ve assembled a list of people and organizations that he has offended through his career, and they are quite diverse. Dude had better hope he never sits next to a gay person while traveling to Hawaii by way of the Philippines.

Philippines

Adam Carolla must have lost money on Manny Pacquiao or something. On a 2010 episode of his podcast, he said that Pacquiao is illiterate, brain damaged, and that he prays to chicken bones. He then described the island nation of the Philippines where Pacman makes his home. “They got this and sex tours, that’s all they have over there. Get your shit together Philippines. Jesus Christ. I mean, again, it’s fine to be proud of your countrymen. But that’s it? That’s all you got?”

Awesomely, he received death threat. The President of the Philippines even responded. Carolla apologized with the defense that his comments were made in jest. Get your shit together Philippines. Can’t you take a joke?

GLAAD

Carolla doesn’t have too many friends over at GLAAD after making harsh statements about the LGBT community. He wondered aloud when we started caring about transgendered people, in addition to stating that heterosexual couples make better parents. He later responded with, “I’m sorry my comments were hurtful. I’m a comedian, not a politician.” GLAAD criticized this apology as being empty. This is just like when watermelon farmers didn’t accept Gallagher’s apology.

Hawaiians

Carolla’s syndicated radio show, Loveline, lost affiliates in Hawaii after he made comments about the Aloha State. he alleged that Hawaiians are among “the dumbest people we have.” I’m not taking sides here, but if he’s right it explains why they like Spam so much.
