Journey into the jaw-dropping, frequently nauseating world of absolute crap accumulation
Published: October 20, 2010
Networking: NBC has halted production of its Friday night newcomer Outlaw after three weeks of saggy ratings. Why can't Jimmy Smits catch a post-NYPD Blue break in primetime? ... Has ABC lost its natural mind, announcing the arrival of Skating With the Stars for later this season? You may remember (but probably don't) that FOX tried a Skating With Celebrities series four years ago that bombed miserably. Why? Because celebrities can't skate, that's why! You think there are a lot of injuries on ABC's smash hit Dancing With the Stars? Wait until the first time a skate blade severs someone's artery. The first victims — uh, participants — are expected to be announced on the DWTS season finale Nov. 22.
