Oh, boy.

So it’s November Sweeps here in the TV biz. That’s the time when networks pull out their big ratings-grabbing stunts in order to pull in larger numbers of viewers so as to increase the amount of money they can charge advertisers.

The upside of this is that you can expect to see lots of local news anchors being shot with Tasers (quality viewing no matter how you slice it).

The downside is that some networks will stoop to shocking levels of poor taste like, say, the FOX network (as if you couldn’t guess) airing an interview with O.J. Simpson IN WHICH HE DESCRIBES HOW HE WOULD HAVE KILLED HIS WIFE AND HER FRIEND!!

You know, had he done it...

  

You heard me. Simpson, the most reviled former Buffalo Bill not named Scott Norwood, will appear in a two-part interview on FOX, airing November 27th and 29th, discussing the killings and his upcoming book on the subject, titled, If I Did It.

Some might consider this kind of stunt to be downright obscene (clearly not as obscene as Janet Jackson’s exposed breast, but still…). It leaves one to wonder… what happened to the simpler times now passed, when FOX could be counted on to broadcast life-affirming stunt programming, like old ladies being attacked by bears? I suppose that world is gone for good. As always, Don Henley was right: this is, indeed, the end of the innocence.

Sigh.
