Stop it, VH1

I’ve procrastinated starting a blog for so long that I don’t even know where to begin. How about something low-brow and shallow? Fine: I’m going to try my hardest not to watch “Megan Wants a Millionaire” this week.

Yes, I’ve allowed myself to be entertained by certain shameful TV shows that no one in their right mind would watch. I could (sort of) justify watching “Rock of Love” because of my background as an employee of Metal Edge magazine. And, OK, I caught a few episodes of “Daisy of Love” mainly to observe the spectacle of rocked-out, heavily tattooed male contestants crying and whining just like their pathetic female counterparts on “RoL.” And maybe I occasionally had “Charm School” on in the background while I was doing the dishes, totally by accident.

But there’s no reason to watch Megan, one of the most charmless of all RoL contestants, put a bunch of arrogant and/or socially inept “millionaires” through myriad humiliations all for the honor of winning her hand (or whatever), right?

And yet, and yet…there’s that one creepy mama’s-boy type whose piggy bank was smashed by that obnoxious, crazy-eyed malcontent in the first episode. And the guy who made his millions stripping under the name The Punisher. I feel my will power waning…

    Yes, it’s heard to read these confessions of an esteemed colleague. And I thought ANTM was scraping the bottom of the barrel
