The people who brought us the series of ...For Dummies books have brainstormed another way to target a different population of dumb. The newest bright idea? Target TV viewers. Moving beyond the bookstore and behind the camera, they're joining forces with network executives to make a TV adaptation of the popular book series. Is the idiot box on the verge of being schooled?
I don't know about you, but this frightens me. They don't call it the "boob tube" for nothing, and I'm afraid we're on the verge of trading mindless TV programming for "quality" television. What to do without shows like Breaking Up With Shannon Dougherty on the air? Seriously. I don't want to have to think about breaking up with my significant other. I just want Shannon to do the dirty work for me- why the heck not? It's a smart move. You see, we TV watchers ain't so dummy after all.
