MY TWO CENTS:

I‘m glad that Jeremy Piven won best supporting actor in a comedy. I found it fitting that he won the award the same day that his character, ARI GOLD, had his best episode so far. I’m a huge fan of 30 ROCK, and I don’t know many people who are so their wins lifted my spirits. And I’m just going to say, I hate MAD MEN, I don’t understand why it’s so loved…it’s a show about douche bags that have no redeeming qualities at all, and it’s boring beyond belief.

    Not all the characters are “douche bags,” as you claim, but I agree that the show is not at all entertaining and I don’t quite understand the attraction people seem to have to it. I find it boring and difficult to sit through. It moves along at a snail’s pace and the few episodes I watched were obscure. I had no idea what was going on and didn’t really care. I don’t find the show appealing but I think it does appeal to the Boomer crowd. They can relive their youth, so to speak. On another site, all the Boomers seem to sit around and recount their glorious childhoods, and argue with other Boomers about the sixties and the show (if they think they are right and the other Boomer is wrong). All boring. If the show – and the site – went off tomorrow, I wouldn’t care.
