SOS - SAVE OUR SHOW!
Y’all, this is for real. I’ve looked at the ratings and they are bad. Like really really bad - the worst it’s ever been. I think there is a very strong chance this will wind up being our last cycle.
That’s a shame because this show is amazing. Yeah, I make fun of it relentlessly, but I love engaging with the show. There’s no reality TV show that makes me chuckle quite like this one. The editors are straight up hitting it out of the park the way they’re putting this show together lately. [If you work in post on ANTM, please say hello - I love you.]
If we want the madness to continue, we need to do our part. Tell your friends how hilarious this show is. I brought it up with some friends this weekend and their responses were, “Is that show even still on?” “That show can’t be any good” and “I don’t give a shit about modeling.” To which I responded “It is still on, it is not necessarily ‘good’ but it is super entertaining, and this show is far from a serious modeling competition.”
You’re not going to hook many new people with the modeling competition angle. Instead, tell ‘em why we actually love this show. Tell ‘em about Tyra covering the house with pictures of herself. Tell ‘em about silly string runways. Tell ‘em about DNA spit tests. Tell ‘em about Tyra obsessing over some guy’s “manaconda.” Tell ‘em about a witch casting spells on his competitors. Tell ‘em about the beard weave. I did this and people were like “Okay, fuck, I have to watch this show.”
I often get kind messages from people who says they started watching the show (or restarted watching the show) just because of my blog. So thanks to you readers/fans of the show who reblog these posts and help spread the word to outside audiences. I’ve added some Facebook share/tweet links to the bottom of each post (I think? Coding is confusing) to make it easier to share these posts with new people, too. The more people who realize how hilarious ANTM is these days, the more that will watch and keep it on the air, I figure.
I’m sure it also helps when you watch the show on Hulu and CWTV.com since they can count how many people are tuning in (and watching the ads) via that as well. I’m not ready for this to end!
Side note: I will always know Nick Cannon as “the new, not-funny member of All That.”
