Another television snob ... aw, screw it, I'll just recycle an old post about another TV critic:
I've said it before, but it's offensive that so many critics bash network reality shows as low-brow entertainment. But they praise public television's Frontier House, Pioneer House, etc.
Just because those shows are on PBS they're virtuous, and just because [fill in the blank] is on commercial television it's vulgar?
Granted, there's plenty of crap reality on now, but this guy considered himself too culturally superior (or maybe he was just lazy) to learn enough about the genre to tell the difference.
