Reason #15745 Why the Rest of the Civilized World Hates Us...

Here is a brief description of a new show being produced by MTV:

Shot in documentary format, the show follows the Electric Barbarellas as they shop their demo tape around in the hopes of landing a record deal. The group is led by a singer-songwriter named Claudia, who is described by a source as a "female Diddy" that tried out roughly 700 girls before deciding on the five in addition to herself that make up the band. Sources said to think of the group as a cross between the Pussycat Dolls and Spice Girls, except raunchier and not as musically gifted, if that's possible.

Oh, it is possible to be raunchier and less talented than the Pussycat Dolls and the Spice Girls, but why the hell would anyone want to watch it? Executives like to complain about the erosion of the television audience, but when they put this shit out there, can anyone blame the public for not watching it?

And that, my dear Homer, is reason #15745 that I am grateful to not be wasting money on cable or satellite.
