It's Not Just a TV Show

Friday, September 30, 2005
I love honest, genuine, from-the-heart people. That would be people like Marla and Steve. So it makes me sad that they ended up being badly hurt by a TV makeover gone wrong.

I think we've been Springerized to such a degree that we sometimes forget that there are real people on the other side of the TV set -- real people who have to live with the consequences of the way that their lives have been "sliced and diced" long after a particular TV segment ends. The producers of these shows should do their best to capture the realities of their guests' lives rather than trying to make their guests' lives fit a storyline that someone has decided will play well with viewers.
