Last night, I watched a recording of American Idol, and since I have the myth
system set to record 10 minutes previous to the beginning of the show, I had recorded the last 10 minutes of a show called "Moment Of Truth".
The whole premise of this show is to take a polygraph (lie-detector) test previous to the show, and then go on live TV to tell the nation whether or not you told the truth. Seems ... simple enough.... right?
Well.. Basically, it seems this show has no intent other than to make people look and feel stupid. No... It actually goes way beyond that.
The 10 minutes I watched of the "Season Finale" of this program showed nothing other than a devistatingly beautiful woman answering questions about her fidelity in marriage in front her husband, and someone who I thought to be her husband's mother.
All of the questions she answered made her husband feel uneasy about their marriage, all the while this woman was cheering for herself because she got money for telling the truth.
What a crock of horse puckey.
I was disturbed the whole time I watched. I have no desire or intention of watching any more of this program.
The kicker, came as the teaser right before the time was up for this segment, and it went as such:
"Watch as this beautiful woman destroys her marriage one question at a time.
What kind of a world do we live in, where this type of show can hold ratings in a prime-time slot on a popular network?
Kind of a slap in the face for me, at least.
