The *Real* Ratings Grabber!
Has anyone else noticed the promos where the Average fellas are getting picked on a lot by the ringers? Perhaps it's just me but the producers really seem to have punched up the "jocks vs. nerds" aspect.
I read somewhere (probably here) that NBC recut the show hastily during the last season to be more sympathetic to the AJ's after audience reaction was not what they anticipated -- America rooting for the Joe's and not the pretty boys. Judging from the promos though, they seem to have forgotten that and showed the PB's harshing on the Joe's.
My hope this year is that one of the Average Joes is a third degree black belt or former Golden Gloves contender who after getting an egg broken over his head by some gym-rat underwear model throws that wicked right cross.. and we watch the pretty boy spit teeth and unwillingly join the ranks of the Average.
THAT would make my sweeps week, lemme tellya.
