FOX Continues Quality Programming By Devoting 2 Hours To Octomom

Octomom Y'all, Christmas is coming early! Fox has acquired "all access" tapes of the first seven months of the Octomom's gaggle of kids coming home, and they're giving us a two hour documentary about it! I'll wait for the applause to die down before I say...

Really? Really. Fox, we had dismissed Nadya Suleman months ago. She dropped off the radar, and no one went a-searchin' for her. Even the tabloids gave it a rest. So surely there must be something of extreme import in this documentary that we have to rewind back to a time when we still had Michael Jackson; Jon and Kate were still together, and people gave two shits about this kookoobird and her tiny entourage.

Well Fox, being the upstanding network they are, promises big things for the documentary, so let's take a looksee and figure out if this is worth TiVoing.

Via Fox, here's what we're in for:

"witness the emotional struggles, physical complications and financial burdens of this single mother of 14 ... including the private moments and reactions of Suleman's family, as well as Suleman's own feelings, doubts and fears."

"It's emotional, it's compelling, you're watching her go from miracle birth woman to tabloid fodder," said Fox president of alternative Mike Darnell. "You don't even need narration, it's incredible footage. It's a little bit of a trainwreck, and it's really entertaining to watch."

You know, I almost gave Suleman a little credit when she dropped out of sight all those months ago. She ditched all her hired help - hell, even Dr. Phil gave up on her - and one would guess, went about attempting to raise 14 kids by herself. But now we get to catch up on all the ugliness that really transpired. When the President of Alternative" (I imagine he wears a lot of ironic t-shirts and has man-bangs) calls your documentary a "train wreck" one would think that the bottomfeeders who put this show together must have been giving each other high fives galore at the thought of this woman falling apart, yet again, on national television.

Will people watch it? It remains to be seen. But the vultures who created it want us to, oh MAN do they want us to. Why else would that "trainwreck" quote be in the press release? And of course people are going to watch it. If Jon and Kate's divorce is still front-page news, and people still care about the Duggars and their eleventeen thousand kids, why WOULDN'T audiences still care about Nadya Suleman?

Because if there's one thing "reality television" watchers love doing, it's judging. And Fox has done its best to see who throws the first stone. Bleh. Count me out.

"Man-bangs" has got to enter the common vernacular ASAP.

Are they kidding? Do we really need this garbage?

I assume by "tiny entourage," you mean tiny in stature. Because numbers-wise, her entourage is pretty massive.

I so will NOT be watching this. I prefer my TV trainwrecks to involve only those above legal drinking age (see: Rock of Love and well, really all VH1 "celebreality" shows). I assume her kids are going to be on camera for this little venture? No. Not ok. Not one tiny bit.

I saw a blurb about this on tv last night and couldn't believe it. I also was wondering though how much they're paying her. I bet you can buy a lot of pampers with the documentary money.

I REFUSE to watch this. Now that doesn't mean I won't read the follow-up Mamapop post...
