On Friday night I was discussing with friends TV shows that we are embarrassed to admit that we like. At the time I couldn't think of any that I could admit I watch in secret. But the winds of change are blowing and now I have not one, but TWO shows to come clean about.
1. Tommy Lee Goes to College
I want to shake the man's hand that came up with this show. It premiered last night and I must admit, I set my Tivo to a season pass (Mom that means it's going to record every episode) after the first episode. What genius thought "Hey, let's make famous drummer Tommy Lee try out for the school band and watch him almost fail the audition." I love love love when Tommy Lee moves into his dorm room that he must share with another student. yes! A shared dorm room! Or when Tommy Lee kicks his room mate out because his hottie tutor is coming over! I mean, this is the man that got to make motorboat noises with Pam Anderson's huge boobs, and he's getting excited about a college aged pre-med student!!! Brilliant!
2. My Super Sweet 16
I've been borderline about this show on MTV for a while now. Should I cave in and watch the spoiled girls get their ways or take some kind of stand that this show proves what is wrong with American teenagers today? Oh screw it, I can find another way to take a stand on American teenagers, I want to watch the show.
So what's so great about this show? ummm, Spoiled rich girls spending $400,000 on a sweet 16 birthday party and getting upset when mommy cancels their credit cards. Or crying when daddy says they might not get them the $100,000 Land Rover they want. How can you not like this show?
