And now for something completely different......

I just have to comment on the ludicrous nature of television programming today. 

There's a new show on ABCFamily called "Switched at Birth".  This is not a made-for-tv movie, it's a full-on series about two families who took home the wrong baby girls.  Said girls are now teenagers and (apparently) just now finding out that they're not who they thought they were (insert dramatic music here).

Is it just me or is this a really stupid idea?  I mean, sure there's all kinds of drama when everybody finds out, but then what do you do next week?  "I'm sorry Sarah, you can't go to the prom after all.  You were SWITCHED AT BIRTH!"  Or how about this: "Oh, now I understand why our baby had somebody else's name on her hospital wristband!  She was SWITCHED AT BIRTH!"  Or even better:  "I'm sorry, but you're not my real daughter.  I'm going to stop paying for your expensive designer jeans because you were SWITCHED AT BIRTH!"

I may have to swear off TV for awhile until they get their collective act together :)

Drama and chaos when boyfriends dump their girlfriends who were SWITCHED AT BIRTH! "I just don't know who you are anymore."

Between that show, the Cat Whisperer, and the guy who puts maple syrup on everything, I'd almost prefer QVC.

At least Futurama is back this week.
