On an early episode of “Storage Wars,” cast member Darrell Sheets bid on a storage locker that contained cash hidden in the back of a painting. “Well,” I thought, “that looked pretty fucking fake.”

Another early cast member, Dave Hester (the “Yup!” guy) now claims he was fired from the series because he complained that producers were salting and staging the storage lockers.

“This Is 40” star Robert Smigel used to write for the show Jimmy Fallon now hosts:

Premiering tonight:


Amish Mafia (10:30pm Discovery)

 

"Raising Hope" managed yet another new season low last Tuesday.

CBS’ Victoria’s Secret special did a lot better in the “Vegas” slot last Tuesday than “Vegas” ever did:

    Well, it is a Victoria's Secret special...

    I mean, of course that's going to get big ratings no matter what. For guys who haven't discovered porn. Not sure what happened above. Sorry.

    Amish Mafia?

    Get the fuck outta here with that shit.

    I've met some pretty corrupt Amish folks

    by OutsideChance

    They're like any other group. Some of decent folks and some aren't. I lived in a community that saw Amish wife beaters, Amish animal abusers (especially the puppy mill operators), Amish child molesters and Amish thieves among the good ones.

    Stop shitting on Vegas all the time

    by sinus111

    It does a hell of a lot better than most shows on tv. I'll follow USA Today's Neilsen ratings before the ones on here.

    I can't watch New Girl with Olivia Munn in it

    by Beebop

    Bad actress, stunt casting, and she's completely unappealing. She looks dirty, like she has visible STDs crawling all over her skin. Also, Amish puppy mill owners should be locked in cages and not given food or drink ever agai. ALL puppy mill people should suffer that fate. Go to the humane society, people, and get a rescue.

  • Dec. 11, 2012, 8:22 p.m. CST

    Hate to admit it, because I hear she's not nice,

    by Hercules

    but Olivia Munn is a solid actress. She knows how to sell the comedy on HBO's "Newsroom."

  • Also, Vegas would've been so much better without Dennis Quaid.

    Herc do you like Raising Hope???

    seems kinda weird to single it out like that, what gives???

    Olivia Munn...

    by mongo126

    who gives a fuck if she's nice? Did you see the nasty shit she texted her BF Chris Pine? Oh, gee, here it is.... Chris, I <3 when you… finger my in the doorway, lick my tight asshole and choke me so hard i can't breathe… pull my hair, push my head down, shove your big, long dick in my mouth so deep i tear up and choke… slap my pussy til I come… fuck me in the ass slow and good. it hurts me but you won't stop because you know how bad i want it and how good it feels to force your dick inside my tight ass. slide your raw, perfect dick inside my tight, wet, warm pussy that i've saved just for you… on top of me, dick in my pussy, it's so good i can't take it. you grab my face, I look at me with the fucking look in your eyes and tell me to take it like a BIG GIRL… come so deep inside me… kiss me… slap me OVER and OVER, HARDER and HARDER until i learn to do what you say… <3 Olivia xoxo

  • Chris, I <3 when you… finger my in the doorway, lick my tight asshole and choke me so hard i can't breathe… pull my hair, push my head down, shove your big, long dick in my mouth so deep i tear up and choke… slap my pussy til I come… fuck me in the ass slow and good. it hurts me but you won't stop because you know how bad i want it and how good it feels to force your dick inside my tight ass. slide your raw, perfect dick inside my tight, wet, warm pussy that i've saved just for you… on top of me, dick in my pussy, it's so good i can't take it. you grab my face, I look at me with the fucking look in your eyes and tell me to take it like a BIG GIRL… come so deep inside me… kiss me… slap me OVER and OVER, HARDER and HARDER until i learn to do what you say… <3 Olivia xoxo

  • I mean don't tell me there's a pour soul actually jerking off to it. Sure I was too, in like 1993 when a special edition of Playboy or something was my high end wanking material.

    Storage Wars is staged?

    by Chairman_Kaga

    What a shock? You mean abandoned lockers aren't full of money and pricey antiques instead of old clothes, toys and junk?

    Munn Wars

    by SuperXY

    Never liked Munn until she was on The Daily Show. Since then she has slowly gotten better. Now she has developed some pretty good timing to go with the hotness. And, frankly, the "dirty girl" look is what makes her appealing. If you don't get that then go back to church or grow up for a few years. As for Dave on Storage Wars... Maybe he got fired because he was the only douche on tv that was actually so bad people didn't want to watch him. Imagine that in this world of reality tv. An asshole so big that we don't want to deal with his crap. I mean that's 90% of reality shows but he is such a dick that he broke the formula.

    The one thing I know about an Amish Mafia

    by smackfu

    is if it did exist, they certainly wouldn't pose for a tv promo documenting their shenanigans.

    yahweh3000, the short answer is no.

    by hst666

    For whatever reason he doesn't appreciate the humor. Sometimes I believe Herc has a vendetta against the creator of Raising Hope, the same creator as Raising Earl. Both shows were very very layered and smart with a Simpsons like mix of highbrow and lowbrow humor, but Herc ssill does not enjoy them.

    ...who didn't know that Storage Wars (and all other storage auction shows) were fake, I have some beachfront property in Kansas I'd like to sell.

  • I have evidence that conclusively proves that wrestling is fake! I've been sitting on this sensitive material for 30 years.

    Parenthood

    by eck_iii

    Parenthood has some of the worst and the best writing of any network show. It can go to sweet and sublime to awful within the hour. I've gotten to the point of not caring about most of the characters. Despite his disability, I have trouble believing any parent would let Max get away with what he gets away with. They tell him no and then by the end of the episode he gets what he wants. Really? It's become more soap opera than drama. I may give up even before the season ends.
