I HATE THE DUGGARS
I hate the Duggars. I’m growing more than a bit tired of having to watch (because my wife controls the converter when it’s not hockey season) TV shows that feature couples who think reproduction is some kind of endurance sport where score is tabulated by how many offspring you have.
Case in point: “18 Kids and Counting” (formally called “17 Kids and Counting”). I don’t want to judge, but I think they might be taking the old “be fruitful and multiple” request a tad bit too far.
I love kids as much as the next person, but when you turn your womb into a Disneyland turnstile, you might get an award for having the most children on your block, but I question how much quality time you are able to give each of your offspring.
We also have the very popular “Jon and Kate Plus 8” (I am assuming it is a popular show because the couple is on every single supermarket tabloid cover). Jon and Kate recently broke up, but the TV execs won’t let that stop the popular show from airing. You would think that their break up would prove to be the ‘jump the shark moment” of that particular show, but it looks like viewers will be able to follow the unhappy couple all the way to their guest appearance on “Divorce Court.”
If there are any Hubbers out there who have connections to any Hollywood big wigs, can you please request them to develop alternative-types of programming for people like me who really can't stand the Duggars anymore? Perhaps something with the working title of “Bill and Meryl Go Sterile” .
