Why God Why: Stupid Blogs Run By TV Shows

Throw a rock and you could hit another pud starting his/her own TV blog (hi), but nothing makes Eye question the stupidity of man more than the ol' promotional blog put out by a TV show itself. Participate in special contests sponsored by Downy dryer sheets! Witness fictional TV characters blog like live humans! Worse—network execs blog like live humans! (We see you there, Bravo VP. Since when does America know "Andy" on a first-name basis?)

Eye's current favorite: the Slim-Fast Challenge Blog for Dancing with the Stars. Working mom Tysonia is paired with dancing instructor Bruno to lose weight through the magic of ballroom dance.
