Tonight, I found my new, summer guilty pleasure to take the place of American Idol. It is Beauty and the Geek on the WB. It sounds dumb, yes, but it was really entertaining! The premise is that the geeky guys are paired up with pretty stupid girls. The guys compete in competitions to show their social skills (that they are learning from the women, ha!), and the girls compete in educational areas (being coached by the geeks.)
Here's my favorite moment of the evening. The girls were being quizzed on a 5th grade level general knowledge. Here's how it went....
"Who was the President of the United States during the Civil War? "
"No, it was Abraham Lincoln. "
"Oh yeah! The D-day thing! "
Ahhh....this is some quality television!
