'Extreme Poodles' On TLC Makes Clear Why Sarah Palin Has A TV Show

I’ve had an epiphany.

For the longest time, I’ve grappled with the “why” concerning Sarah Palin landing a show with Discovery Communications. How could anyone take this woman seriously to make her a tour guide on the natural beauty of Alaska? I finally have my answer, and it comes courtesy of the new series Extreme Poodles on TLC.

You see, TLC is a giant joke. As Curtis Silver laments on Technorati’s entertainment blog, shows like Mall Cops, Jon & Kate, What Not to Wear and, as he calls it, “the blatantly disturbing Toddlers & Tiaras“, have changed TLC’s rep as an educational programming network into something more resembling the smell of bleach.

“It’s a wonder that this channel still exists under the flagship Discovery Channel,” Silver says. “I understand that there is a demand for low brow reality television in America, I get that. There are plenty of folks that have little or no drama in their own lives, so must feed off the televised drama of others like a modern day succubus. The problem here is that this material is being presented under the guise of a channel once dedicated to quality learning and educational programming.”

Which brings me back to Extreme Poodles. The stupidity of this show is beyond comprehension. Sure, it makes you pause while flipping between channels — if only because you’re witnessing some poor dog being turned into a f**king buffalo — but you can actually feel yourself becoming dumber for it. That’s TLC’s market. That’s the level of “intelligent” programming. And that’s why Sarah Palin has a home there. It’s all clear now.

If you don’t mind more than a few brain cells committing suicide, check out the trailer for Extreme Poodles below.
