No. It just started low and has been on a downward spiral ever since. :)

We've ceased using snorkels and have gone to periscope depth?

We need the extra-long extensions on the periscope just to see the underside of the ones at periscope depth. :)

He's a lady..
Someone must be watching.. Someone must be looking at charts and saying.. HEY! .. people are watching our channel while this is on! Hey! lets pay them to keep their crap on our channel! .. And.. Then.. somewhere out there.. someone paid says! .. hey! .. Lets think of something even more stupid to watch! .. and then somebody announces it.. and somebody.. Somebody REAL.. One of YOUR reletives, takes their sorry bum, and parks it in front of this show to watch it.

In this case.. Those reletives of a friend.. Are quite specificly, My aunt sharon, and her children. :>

You should have seen...
...thr reality show High Concepts that didn't make it to the screen.

Like...
Human Autopsy -- self-explanatory.
Jackson Five -- trap five Michael Jackson impersonators in a Big Brother house & let cabin fever run its course.
Pimp House -- like Big Brother and Jackson Five, except it's five working pimps running their stables out of the house.

And a Reality/Game Show I've wanted to try:

High Concept -- actual wannabe TV Show proposals (with one hoax mixed in) get pitched to the contestants, who vote on which one --
1) they'd most like to see on the air;
2) they'd least like to see;
3) special "Have You Gone Stupid?" award; and
4) which of the pitches was the hoax.

(I once saw a for-real Hollywood "pitch sheet". The three reality shows above are actually mild and intelligent compared to what I saw on that sheet. Actually, The Eye of Argon or Salem Kirban's 666 would be a masterpiece compared to what I saw on that sheet. Half of them began "Just like fill-in-the-blank, except...")
