CBS files suit against viewers, recappers, and MediaJammers.
Almost exactly six months after the end of Big Brother, CBS has filed suit against a number of groups critical of what the network calls their “best show EVER!” MediaJammers, the group that flew the first banner over the compound, which resulted in a tidal wave of what CBS calls “disruptive” and “hard to read while staring into the sun” banners dragged by airplanes, is named, as are the people who wrote recaps of the “scintillating” episodes. Host Julie Chen was apparently “traumatized” that the recaps would “point out the funny way she stands” again, according to Insight.com, one of the two sites I regularly link to because I’m lazy. CBS also blames viewers for “blindly following the media” who panned the show.

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
