FOX pulls Seriously Dude, I’m Gay.

FOX pulls Seriously Dude, I’m Gay.
Just under two weeks before it was going to air the two-hour special Seriously, Dude, I’m Gay, FOX has decided to kill the series. The network pulled the series before meeting with GLAAD about their concerns, and they were concerned after seeing a tape: In a statement, GLAAD says the show was “an exercise in systematic humiliation, with contestants referring to the experience as their ‘worst nightmare’ and complaining that they were ‘trapped in gay hell.'” GLAAD also reports that “One contestant had to tell his former wrestling teammate that he liked the sport because he enjoyed ‘close contact with sweaty boys.’ And later in the week he had to fork-feed dinner to a blind date, get the man to spank him and fool him into securing a second date.” FOX says the show was pulled “for creative reasons.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
