Wow, Josh, I was just thinking about TV today. How funny that you would mention TV turnoff week! I was thinking, “I wonder which exec at ABC took a dump and then said, ‘Wow! I’ll turn that into TV show, and we’ll call it The Bachelor.’ ” I’d like to thank Genevieve Roja at Alternet for her lucid critique of this affront to humanity. I guess The Bachelor (and all its ilk) exists for the same reason these things do.
