American TV

Ireland imports most of its television programming from England and the United States, and while some shows are worthy of traveling across the Atlantic Ocean, others are a bit puzzling. Every night around dinner, there are a few episodes of Friends and How I Met Your Mother, which are two acceptable shows. Every day around lunchtime? ABC Family's Wildfire. Yeah, not so much on that one. Judge Judy is also on quite a bit. That woman must be raking in the money.

But this morning's television choices at the gym took the cake. There are three TVs--one is always a morning talk show, one is always sports, and one is always an MTV type channel. Except today. Today, the third TV was airing a rerun of Ricki Lake's Miss Drag Idol II...as in it was popular the first time around to need a second competition.

I really, sincerely hope that the people watching do not think that Ricki Lake's drag queen competition represents American life. Then again, maybe it does.
