Thursday, November 4, 2010: Fairy Jobmother

There's this new show on Lifetime where a woman comes into a household and helps people get the confidence to find jobs. After watching the first episode, it's not exactly perfect, but it is somewhat better than Trump doling out a job to one lucky out-of-work executive. I mean, it's very timely and it's something a lot of people can relate to, but it sort of glosses over a lot of issues.

Hayley Taylor is more life coach than a job coach, and this Brit comes in like Supernanny before her, examines the household of the unemployed, then tells them how to raise their children, keep their houses clean (some hoarder tendencies apparently go along with unemployment) and how to fix their hair and dress properly for interviews. She's got a bit of a holier-than-thou attitude with her little scarves, and there are lots of tears. I just wish the show really delved into the process of finding a job, instead of making it look magic and easy. Just go store-to-store. They'll be happy to interview you because a woman with a TV camera told them to. Don't worry about that eviction notice on your door. You'll find a job and be able to pay it off in no time. Ignore the fact that you won't make 400 dollars the instant you find a new job. If they fixed that, then this could be a valuable tool for those who are out of work and looking for gigs, instead of just another makeover show.

The show airs at 9 PM on Lifetime. There's also CSI: Original Flavor, The Office, Grey's Anatomy, Fringe and Nikita ... just for a few other options.
