Bravo’s Giving You A TV Show That’s Just About People Watching TV

Friday, September 13 by
Heavens, that doesn't look fun.  

It appears that the development team at Bravo just learned what “postmodern” and “meta” mean, and they’re in a hurry to use those ideas regardless of how dumb the concept.

And it’s dumb.

Fortunately, the Franco-esque series The People’s Couch will only run for three episodes and be limited to 30 minutes each of a diverse group of Americans watching and commenting.

It’s partially our own fault following the moderate success of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and those Talking Dead/Talking Bad AMC wrap-ups. If you comment here, you’re further demonstrating that TV viewers are looking for a more communal experience. How some jerks on a couch watching TV help nourish that desire is anyone’s guess, but whatever. It’s Bravo.
