I put it on the DVR as a joke and we made it 5 minutes into the first episode before we had to turn it off in disgust. Oh, TLC....is there no bottom to your depraved sinkhole?

I can't watch it. I've seen some smart analyses of it but for me it's like watching Hostel or something. Torture reality porn. It makes me feel like I'm watching TV in the Robocop future. "I'd buy that for a dollar!" seems almost tame.

Holy cow.  I just watched that extended promo video and just...

The stupid nicknames are one thing, but these people apparently own them!  Like, seriously own up to being called "Chubbs" and "Sugar Bear". 

Doing some basic math though, "Mama" was all of 15 when she had "Chickadee" which would have made "Sugar Bear" 23 at the time.  Yeah.  I guess it's progress that "Chickadee" is the "pregnant-est" at the grand old age of 17.

Unless Mama is lying about her age.  It's not unheard of.  I remember telling my sister that she had to stop being 29, or I was going to wind up her older brother (she's almost 10 years older than me).

I was at a bbq with some old friends week before last. Guy who was hosting it is letting his boy and the boy's old lady/baby mama stay in their basement. The baby mama looks exactly like that chick.

With worse teeth and more jack daniels.

I keep hoping they were right and Quetzalcoatl will return to bring his enlightenment.  But alas, I think we're not that lucky.

I don't think we'll even be lucky enough for Cthulhu to fart and wipe half of us out.

I remember when the Learning Chanel was about, learning.

They had some interesting shows. Not anymore. Now, awesome shows like "How its made" are on the Si-fi Chanel.

You're probably right, but Ragnarok isn't close so Thor isn't going to be saving our asses from them any time soon.

How it's made is awesome!  I love coming across the marathons and just wasting hours watching that show, because it's so damn interesting.  And they do all sorts of things you wouldn't think you'd care about, but seeing how they make it is just neat.  I've also caught a few themed shows where they've put together similar items, like golf (wooden drivers, tees, golf balls) and "western" (lasso ropes, spurs, saddles).

No, there really isn't. At least they call themselves TLC now and have dispensed with Learning as a regular part of their identity (even though it's still technically in the name). Because nothing says learning like abbreviations and shows about the family of 2-legged puddings who regularly overdose their children with sugared drinks and rampant prideful ignorance.

I only use it when appropriate. If you drink a bottle of Jack Daniels every night and the only reason you're shacked up in some poor sap's basement is that his drunk redneck son didn't pull out in time, your ass is a 'baby mama', not a mother.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

Yes, it's true. Though if you take the aggregate numbers of all 4 networks showing the convention instead of each network separately then, no, it didn't beat Romney.

You should still fear for this country, however. And weep.

I will likely be watching it because my wife is absolutely entranced by it. She didn't grow up being related to people like that (well, at least not with those accents). Of course, the faces I will be making while doing so are  ACK! Ohhhhh, I see. swamp poop Facepalm embarassed Eek! Cry Argh! headache ಥ_ಥ ಠ▃ಠ ლ(ಠ_ಠლ)

Partly vouerism, like watching firemen cut someone out of a wrecked car, and partly being able to say "My family is fuckstupid, but at least they're not that.

When times are good, we watch things that make us feel worse about ourselves. Healthly living unrealistic lifestyles we only see the highlights for.

When times are bad, we watch things that make us feel better about ourselves. People we can point and mock and hope we don't live next door too.

The ad revenue remains the same  awesome, for real

This show is bad taste, but the shock value started with all that girl pageant shit once it started getting air time years ago. I don't understand how some of this stuff hasn't resulted in Child Protection Services showing up.
