I'm being serious! According to a recently published report, Law & Order and so-called "must-bleed" TV shows of its ilk (CSI, Criminal Minds, The Closer and what have you) that depict death and violence are linked to people buying and eating more food. Something about when being faced with one's own mortality -- because violent, ripped-from-the-headlines murders really get you thinking on a deeper level -- it's easier to rationalize eating that entire can of Pringles. Not that I've done that.
We were trying our best to forget this show was coming, but while we were watching the delayed Amazing Race, we were inundated with commercials for it, hyping it as "MenDay" and showing clips of it and Barney on How I Met Your Mother. So I guess they are ignoring that the other two sitcoms that follow it have female-centric titles and that there's a woman in a leading role on Hostages? Why didn't they just pair this show with Two and a Half Men so we could have obnoxious guys saying horrible things for a solid hour? Or call it "Men Hour" or something? Instead, the promos just added to the list of things that annoy us about this new sitcom, even though it isn't directly the show's fault.
