ABC Surprised by Viewer Reaction

Naked, desperate housewife throwing herself at an egomaniacal professional athlete as the primetime lead-in to Monday Night Football. What's the problem America? Next you'll object to the gang-bang between the cast from Lost and the Kansas City offensive line that ABC has planned for next week's intro.

ABC, obviously still green with envy of CBS and their nipple-gate during the Superbowl, had a collective synapse malfunction, but has now apologized. Looking at ABC's pathetic ratings, it's easy to understand why they don't have a clue how to properly capitalize on the success of a hit show. But here's a tip: when the hit show is about slutty housewives fornicating with every warm body in the neighborhood, it might not be a natural tie-in to a show that's been marketed to the "whole family" for over three decades.

Moreover, this brand of crap-ola is what the "values" voters object to from the liberal media companies and Hollywood. Again, "values" is not a code word for abortion or gay marriage. It's not a synonym for the evangelical right's most extreme positions. It's not a issue that Carville can "wedge" or "neutralize" with spot-polling. But multicultural, relative-moralist liberals are too busy equivocating the terrorist's (p.c. correction: freedom fighter's) beheadings of aid workers to the American military's collateral damage. So it's a convenient timesaver to rely on tired cliches and stereotypes to explain away the values gap between the Red states and the Blue states.

I strongly disagree. You guys at Neo Warmonger always blame the "Leftest" Blue state citizens. In reality, the problem stays in the red states. Let the recount begin.
