I generally rank types of live performance like this: Stage Acting, Band Performance, Stand-up Comedy, Open Mic Night, Magician, Mime, Karaoke, Homeless Bum in the Subway.
In television, I believe there is a similar ranking structure, with “Jackass”-style shock-tainment falling somewhere between Karaoke and Homeless Bum in the Subway.
Today’s example is of such variety. Behold MTV’s latest regression – The Dudesons in America.
Still uncertain that we’re careening toward idiocracy at high speed? Wake me up when MTV finally greenlights “Ow, My Balls:”
Thanks to you, MTV and The Dudesons, we’re one step closer….
