Adopt this!

Ugh.. Fox is up to their lame programming yet again! The latest moronic idea.. "Who's Your Daddy." A show that brings one blonde air head (see 90% of reality programs for the stereotypical character.. mainly the Bachelor and Bachelorette) to meet with an group of men who could be her father. If she picks the correct one she wins $100K. If not, the "imposter" wins the money. I'm sorry.. But what the hell?! Did someone lose their damn mind here? Making such a mockery of adoption is bad enough.. But then to put a price tag on it is absurd. Luckily there is at least one Fox affiliate that plans on not airing the 90 minute premier. In its place they will show "I Have Roots and Branches: Personal Reflections on Adoption." The whole story can be found here.

This whole show simply smacks of the typical immoral, assine ideas reality TV has become. Hopefully this will send it further into decline, and eventually we won't have to tolerate watching drunken twenty-somethings on MTV make asses of themselves on The Real World (cause having a big house, and great job handed to you is sooo real), or watch rich people get richer working for "The Donald."
