Nobody wants Gore to be successful more than I do. His new television network (INdTV) was supposed to be some kind of mixture of Comedy Central, CNN and MTV. Now, it looks more like it will have a heavy dose of America's Funniest Home Videos. The show descriptions sound pretty much, well, terrible. Here's one:
"That's F*&#ed Up: Is there something unfathomable going on around the corner or down the street? Some state of affairs that just doesn't make sense? You can rant all you want -- it just better be good TV."
They are calling it democratizing television, by relying on video submissions from "Generation Y" citizens, but it sounds more like they had trouble finding ideas and talent on their own. Hopefully I'm wrong.
