Is this a bike post? Maybe they could turn it into a recumbent.

Shows I avoid
1: anything on FOX except news and cartoons
2: any show that ends in "island"
3: any show where sedentary people vote themselves off and then complain about it.
4: game shows created within the last three years

I guess you can consider it a recumbent. It is a recliner chair.

Yeah, great show. My high school has got a thing just like it that the drama club puts on. I always go to it.

Yeah. I do. Heard somewhere that it's not as ad lib as you might think (i.e. they know what's on the cards before hand). I do enjoy it tho because it gets a little racey sometimes (considering KABC is owned by Disney).

Ok. I would love to see the host (whatever his name is) develop tachycardia as Chris L. tops out at 60 beats per minute, then voluntarily jumps to 170.

John McEnroe? (I can't spell it, either... )

And HE is monitoring other people's heart rates?

Isn't he the "temper-tantrum-tennis-champion?"

:confused:

Yeah, there lies the irony. Not sure if you've caught it but it is a pretty dumb show. Oh well, I'm sure the ratings will take care of that.

Shows to avoid....
1. Any game show
2. Any show with a laugh track
3. Any show listed as a comedy
4. Any two or three part drama (a 15 minute plot stretched to 3 to 6 hours less commercials)
