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.
