Despite the plethora of crap to be found on TV, FX canceled the critically acclaimed boxing drama, “Lights Out,” due to low ratings. That pisses me off. I’m not saying the show was flawless. In fact, at points, it was pretty stupid. But even so, its writers looked like the reincarnation of William friggen Shakespeare when compared to their competition. How is it that a well scripted, well acted show like “Lights Out” has less of a following than a show about some stereotypical Italian asshole who bakes cakes? I have no idea. But what I do know is that these five shows should not be on the air in a world where “Lights Out” gets canceled.
“CSI!” “NCIS!” WTF? I’m not even going to argue that all these shows are bad (even though they are mindless trash). Wha I am going to argue is that maybe you don’t need twenty different versions. This goes for “Law and Order,” as well. Doing the exact same thing in a different location is the height of laziness (although “Cash Cab Chicago” gets a pass). New York, Miami, LA: who gives a shit? Murder is murder. Could you please just cancel one of these to make room for my boxing drama?
If you want to watch a show about two guys pretending to fight, why would you choose WWE over “Lights out?” It doesn’t make sense! “Lights Out” is better written, better acted, more believable, and a thousand times less homoerotic. Granted, if you’re looking for homoerotisim, I get it. But if you’re not, why watch that shit?
Look, if you really want to watch a bunch of morons pawning shit, that’s fine. I get it. To be honest, I’ve wasted a lot of time watching it, myself. But do we really need two separate shows? “Pawn Stars” wasn’t enough for you animals? Jesus Christ!
Oh no! They baked the wrong cake! What the hell are they going to do now? Oh, thank god! They managed to make a new cake just in time! I can see why this show is so popular! Oh wait, no I can’t. Italians should be ashamed of this asshole’s antics. Fugetaboutit!
Watching Patti Stanger turn away girls because they aren’t attractive is like watching Chewbacca tell Bigfoot he needs to shave. Who the hell is she? More importantly, who the hell sits and watches that beast set up imbeciles on phony dates week after week? Well, my girlfriend does, but she’s only 13, so she doesn’t know any better. At any rate, the fact that this show survives while “Lights Out” dies is a travesty.
