Rubber - Necking


Today, I want to talk about a little something I like to call "Traffic Accident TV".

You know the type of show I mean. You turn on the tube, see some bad TV. It's so dumb that you should just turn off and walk away from, but you don't. You tell yourself as soon as the next commercial comes on, you'll turn it off, but you don't. You justify it by doing some dishes or something, but you can't keep from rubber-necking!

Well, I've got myself hooked on two of those kind of shows. The past two weeks, I've found myself glued to the TV for 3 hours watching The Bachelor and True Beauty. But now that I've started watching, I can't stop. I already have my favorites on both of the shows. Ugh! Great, this is just what I need! Something else I can do while sitting on my butt!
So, here's what I want to know: what Traffic Accident TV do you watch? (If you're not too ashamed to admit it)

I watch 13: Fear is real. Now that is Traffic Accident TV for sure. I just like to be scared I guess!!

American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. Other than those, I don't watch TV. But I wish I did! My kids hog the tube.

OK, I watch American Idol too, but I'm too proud to admit that's rubber necking.
I don't have cable, which is proabably why I haven't heard of Worst Week or Fear is Real. I'm a baby though, and I HATE watching scary stuff. (ask Jason) so I probably wouldn't be tempted by that one. Sounds like it's a good thing we don't pay for TV. It would ultimately mean I was paying to have a bigger butt!!!!!

I have been watching both of those too! I have never watched the bachelor before. I only started really because I wanted to see the first True Beauty and couldn't remember what time it was on and got hooked on the bachelor. True Beauty is really SO stupid but it's kind of funny too. At least for right now that's the only stupid shows I find myself watching.
