Two and a Half Morons

So I'm on vacation for the 4th of July today. Just hanging out at home watching T.V. and I come across the show "Two and a Half Men". Knowing that what this show lacks in humor it makes up for in stupidity, I change the channel. But not before hitting the "Info" button on my Comcast Digital Cable remote control and I couldn't beleive what I saw. The name of this episode is "Love Isn't Blind, It's Retarded". Seriously.

Now, while I may not be blind or "retarded" I think that's kinda mean. But who's to blame here? Sure, Charlie Sheen is the easy target. The guy isn't really someone for kids to look up to. Aside from being ordered to stay 3000 feet away from his wife and kids at one time, and being accused of playing a key role in the death of a porn star/hooker he allegedly paid $15,000 to sleep with....honestly I can't remember where I was going with this.

Maybe writer/creator Lee Aronsohn is the one to point the finger at. After all, this is the guy who brought us "Grace Under Fire" and "Who's the Boss". Not exactly quality programming.

I don't know. CBS greenlit this show and somebody thought the title of this episode was funny. I didn't. Maybe I am "retarded" after all.
