Default Take Me Out....

Before I THROW UP!!!

After a stressful day, came home from an early evening meeting, turned on the TV, and nothing on. I stumbled on the show Take Me Out.. hosted by George Lopez.

George Lopez is now in charge of choosing the comedians for Carnival Cruise Line's ships.

I sure hope he excercises better judgement in choosing the comedians, than he did agreeing to work on this show. UGGGGGH

Kuki, at least you watched the show once. I would not even do that.

I saw a commercial for it a while back - that was enough for me!
Seriously, aside from the Big Bang Theory, (even the re-runs), there is NOTHING worth watching on tv these days.....

The only good show on tv was cancelled. Harry's Law. I looked forward to that on Sunday evenings and now it is gone. All that is left are the unreality shows. The pawn show with the two siblings whining to daddy all the time. This show is so filled with filthy language all you can hear is a constant stream of beeps. Cant believe that a good drama like Harry's Law is axed before this filth.

I thought it curioius the George Lopez was selected by Carnival to bring talent onboard. It reminded me of the old Love Boat show...the "B" liist actors getting booked for the show, because their career is no more. This sounds like George's last gasp....No "A" lister wanted the job...

Guy Fieri with the popularity of celebrity chefs, is another story...good choice..his upbeat peersonality is a good fit with the brand...George. ahhhh, not so much.

IMHO Carnival made a big mistake with Geo Lopez.

I trust no man who takes a kidney from his wife and then divorces her. He should take all her assets and then divorce her.

Lopez was ok a number of years ago but he's lost it. I do know that some of the new comics on Carnival are funny but a couple are just too vulgar and if you know me they have to pretty dang vulgar for me to be offended.

Take care,
Mike

Now days, on tv we watch mainly the news. If we want to watch a tv series or old movie we do Netflix...

At the end of our current cable contract we're canceling. We have hundreds of available channels and nothing worth watching. It's like television is aimed at 'dumbing us down'.
