Extreme disappointment

I have recently begun watching America's Funniest Videos on Sunday evenings for a couple of different reasons.

1) There is always something to laugh at.

2) The new announcer is so much better than Bob Saget.

3) I can leave the room and not miss much of the plot.

Imagine my disappointment when I settled in tonight to play with Dillon on the floor. I turned on the television to have AFV in the background, only to discover that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is on instead.

What is this? Why is this show always two hours long? Can we rename the show, please? I have a couple of suggestions.

Extremely Long Makeover: Home Edition

Extreme Makeover: Long Edition

Extreme Makeover: Editions 1 and 2

Excruciating Makeover: Will they finish in time?

Extreme Makeover: How to Beat a Dead Horse

Ooooooooh I like the last one, but probably a future episode involves a family who's horse died, so maybe that wouldn't work.

That's why I love TiVo. I can spend ten minutes watching the heart-wrenching back story. Then--*blip-blip-blip*--fast forward to the reveal. All of the tears and none of the tedium.

ha! i like your titles. though i must say that the company i work for participated in this project and built a home for a family, and so by default i am not allowed to say anything negative about it. :)

I haven't watched the show, but I've seen the last couple of minutes of it, waiting for "Desperate Housewives" (I Can't believe I just admitted I watch that) anyway, I think it should be called Sappy Show. That's all they do is cry. Not for me.

I usually only watch the last 15 minutes of the show since the rest bores me.

Is it just me, or has that show becoming increasingly cheesy? Like, Ty is gonna "call a friend" who just happens to be a famous country music star who just happens to have a hole in his/her schedule to come sing at some fundraiser for the down-on-their-luck family? Yeah, OH SO spontaneous. Way to go.
