The fact of the matter is that CBS is getting exactly what they want. They put Alison on the show to get people talking. In their minds more people talking about a particular team will probably ensure higher ratings. And guess what .. they are probably right!
Lots of us that post at the FORT can't stand Alison, but we have not turned off TAR just cause of her. In fact, just look how many pages of comments there are for the contestents ... Alison and Donny have double the amount of pages as the other players. Now granted the comments are (generally speaking) negative towards Alison ... but that is what CBS wants ... people talking about the show.
2ctheworld is now off SOAPBOX!
PS .. I still end up doing this everytime Alison opens her pie-hole
