I pick neither.
Of course you do.

Please don't ever run a business or balance your checkbook or invest in the stock market. Leave that to other people.

Seeing as that was pretty clearly a binary question, I'm curious to hear this option "C" that only you seem to know about.

Or was that simply refusing to answer the question, since by doing so you either contradict yourself or you point out what an asinine statement your original comment was?

Why am I reminded suddenly of Paul Giamatti at the end of Private Parts?

I hear ya. Making business decisions is hard.

Criticizing the business decisions you don't have the sack to make yourself, however, is apparently easy.

Not meaning to pile on any more than he already has been (and at the risk of killing the momentum)...but strike Paul Giamatti in Private Parts. I'm reminded more of Bartleby in this case.

Doesn't help that Reality TV is all a lie. It is NOT really real.
Reality Shows are the work of the Illuminati. This is fact.

My acquaintance at the local bowling alley said so.

That's why you don't run GSN.

As crappy as it is that GSN is banking on DWTminorcelebrities, if they thought it would turn a mass-market profit, then there's no question that's what they should do. GSN is not our church or our museum, it's a for-profit business catering to a demographic that is not us. It is sad, but it is true.

If you don't like it, then you're free to raise a couple million dollars to start your own television station and run it the way you'd like.

I don't agree with GSN, but I can't help but tune in once a while. I think that it will never be as good as the true niche channel it started out as, but tastes change and it should be known by now that I nor any of the current detractors are what GSN cares about (as they shouldn't). America rules television now and if Dancing with the Stars reruns is what they want, then by golly they want it.

As for this promo, there is nothing wrong with it. They are using simple advertising technique to gain more viewers. I heard lying was the new black.

/DWTS with GSN Interactive would be so awesome.
//On second thought, maybe not.
Me: Of all of the game shows you've hosted besides Jeopardy!, like High Rollers or Classic Concentration, which is your favorite?
Alex Trebek: I'd have to say To Tell The Truth, because it was the first time in my career that I got to sit down while I was hosting.

Is Ralph Macchio today's Dick Gautier? I think not. The retorts of Len and Bruno are nowhere near Brett and CNR. What's next for GSN? Dog shows? America's Funniest Videos? For a company that owns rights to incredible library collections, why aren't they using them?

Last I knew, which was 2010 or so, they only have rights to single seasons of CS, FF, and MG.  They have to pay for Sony product and have had to for at least five years, maybe closer to eight or nine.  They no longer have unfettered access to the incredible library you speak of.

The level of melodrama I'm seeing regarding this programming decision is really making me sad.
