Say you are casually hanging out at home in the middle of a weekday with nothing to do. Would you pursue job leads or do craft projects or engage in some other worthwhile endeavor? Or would you turn on the TV instead? I thought so. And then would you be too lazy to flip to the Gem Shopping Network (it's real!) or The View, and just leave it on TLC, where it was because you fell asleep watching the latest episode of Hoarding: Buried Alive? Sure, why not? It seems harmless enough. After all, unlike TLC's evening parade of freakshows, the days are chockablock with programming about normal people having normal amounts of babies. How bad can that be? The answer is very bad.
