The Calico Cat Confesses

Michael Kantor over at The Calico Cat confesses to his secret vice of late:

Despite the name of the show, Average Joe, these guys range from a little below average to downright ugly.

I expected to hate the show like I've hated all other reality shows I've seen. But I was surprised to discover that I actually enjoyed the show and I'm looking forward to the second episode on Monday night. What's going on here? Have my tastes in entertainment sunk to the lowest common denominator? Will I take up bowling and hunting next week?

Michael's post is, as always, well-written and entertaining. More so than the television show, I suspect, but then again I'm no fan of reality TV. He suspects that the guys are the butt of the joke despite the advertisements we've seen, depicting the show as a karmic payback to a pretty woman with overweening hubris.
