    Are you Hot?.....ewwww NOT!

    Is it just me or is this the worst show on television? I can't stomach shallow moronic people competing to be crowned the hottest in America.... like who really cares!

    There's no substance behind the entire series. AND to make the first episode 2 whole hours.... PUH-LEEZ.

    doesn't really matter if you like the show, what matters is your watching, abc gets one more viewer and sells that much more advertisement, like they give a S**t if you think it has substance

    I think it's a good show, it's entertainment. It's not that I really care all that much who the hottest person is...

    I'm not looking to it for any intellectual meaning, and if it bugs me, then I'll turn the channel.

    I don't watch it... I saw the first 15 minutes of the first show out of curiosity... the show is actually doing terribly in the ratings, so therefore, I'm not the only person who thinks this! What they've won is a big fat lawsuit for knocking-off one of Howard Stern's ideas.

    I actually liked the concept when it was on his show... but everything about abc's rendition is just so off... the judges, the contestants' attitudes, the live audience, and the host... NOT only is there no substance, but there is no chemistry and witty dialogue/banter. The show just falls short (IMVVVVHO).

    Please don't take me as one to be opposed to terrible TV (I mean I religiously follow American Idol and the Bachelor)...

    I don't mean to offend, I just wanted to state an opinion.

    I know that the show is bad, because I'm one of the recappers for it. I tape the show (it's opposite CSI, after all), and I find myself more motivated to do other things like take the garbage out, watch paint dry, have my fingernails pulled out with rusty pliers, etc. before I actually sit down and watch the tape.

    John, you're too funny. I love your Simon pic too...

    How long would you give it before the series got axed?

    I would have hoped the series would have been cancelled in normal ABC style - 2 episodes. But, it just keeps hanging on. I think there are only 2 more episodes, so we'll probably see it die a natural death.

    I respect your opinion, and I see your point. I'm just saying that it's entertainment and part of the entertainment for me is the "shallow moronic people competing to be crowned the hottest in America".

    Unfortunately, it's an attempt by ABC to use thinly-veiled softcore porn to gain eyeballs. Sure, it works in the short term. But are those viewers actually buying anything that the ads are selling?

    Based on the fact that about 75% of the "ads" are advertisements for ABC's own shows, I would say the advertisers are onto ABC's plan and aren't biting.

    dvm and 13 times, I respect your opinion but don't you think it's a little unfair to the people on the show? I mean, granted some of the people on the show were selected because of thier attitude and a little shock value but there are some quality people on the show... It took a lot of guts for them to set themselves up for such harsh slandering by the judges in front of millions of viewers. Also, many of the things behind the scenes aren't shown to the public and what is shown is most of the time taken out of context. There are some very smart, intelligent people on the show. College grads, very successful business men and women. So before you go and assume that all of the men and women on the show are shallow and moronic, remember, what your seeing is only what the producers want you to see.
