FX to Develop Esquire Column Into Reality Show
Everybody's doing it so let's do it too. That has always been the mentality of television programmers and it is no different with FX. They have struck a deal with Esquire magazine to produce a reality series based the magazine's "What It Feels Like" column. The column covers first hand accounts of topics such as Tourette's syndrome and shark bites. As this moves from Esquire to FX, there is no doubt in my mind that this will turn into "What It Feels Like to Find Out My Wife is Transvestite". The glory of lowest common denominator reality television. Oh sure, ratings will be great. Another indicator of the unfortunate mentality of most people in this country.
