Reasons Why I Hate....
Ok, I don't actually have a list of my most hated celebrities, but I am gonna work on it (seriously, what else am I gonna do?). At any rate, I already have some candidates for the coveted list and one of them is the subject of this blog...Joe Rogan.
Here's my problem with Joe- I don't see what he offers the entertainment industry. What is his talent? He doesn't sing or dance, can barely act and ain't that easy on the eyes. He also hosts 2 of the most annoying shows ever- Fear Factor and The Man Show.
The reason I don't like Fear Factor is simple. The show is not based on anyone's actual fears. Eating bugs covered in mayonnaise while your hands are tied behind your back in a flourescent room while Bananarama's "I Heard A Rumor" plays over and over? Yeah, that's not a fear...that's COMMON SENSE. Most people are afraid of rational things like heights, the dark and even going outdoors. But to make people do gross things and put it under the heading of conquering their fears is... just...wrong.
But back to Joe. I hear today that Comedy Central has opted to cancel The Man Show. The reason? From TV Guide.com "Man just hasn't been the same since Rogan and Doug Stanhope took over for Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla." Yeah because it was such a nugget of inspiration when the other two guys were a the helm. BTW, Carolla, don't think I forgot about you. You're on the hit list too damnit...whenever I finally make it.
