What is more beautiful than a tribute to the most obnoxious people on TV? What happened to the concept of the Discovery Channel creating shows about things that really mean something in history? As this so beautifully proves, today, all they can seem to come up with is a tribute to people that mean something to the paid programming shows on early morning TV. Basically, the lamest, most deceptive and obnoxious programming that exists on TV. Their products and the so-called "deals" are what they should really be busting myths about.
Why couldn't they just do a show about commercials? At least there's an amusing commercial here and there. The only thing that's amusing about this stuff is how many saps fall for the sales pitches of this junk. The show itself looks like it cost Discovery only $9.95, it wasn't even good enough for the $19.95 price.
You know, the only true difference between a pitchman and a car salesman is that a car salesman knows when they're lying to the customer. I give up. It's officially dead. R.I.P. Discovery Channel.
(by the way, I wrote this comment before I had heard about the guy's death, I just stumbled across the marathon of this on the Discovery Channel the other day)
