the decay of society
30 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Finally a show that pays tribute to all the shallow, self-centered and outright moralless people who play the bars every weekend. It never ceases to amaze me how low the "contestants" can be, but they always seem to top themselves. And as if watching these miscreants take place in their parade of decadence isn't enough, we also get the privilege of the holier-than-thou host Aisha Tyler cracking jokes on everyone between segments. Can this be an entertaining show? Yes. Can this show also be used as a measuring stick of the decay of society? Yes.
