Between this opening show and her appearance on the Howard Stern show in '95-'96 to promote "To the Limit" and "Skyscraper"... if this isn't enough to convince people of the long-term damage that drugs will do to you, then I have no idea what will convince them.

*My wife's reaction to Anna Nicole was actually the funniest part of watching the show. Just this "why in the blue hell are we watching this" look on her face had me in stitches.
*I don't know if it's drugs or just plain bad acting; you see her interviews meshed in with the b-roll, and I think it's more of a split personality complex (and you could fit more than one in *that* body of hers right now). I am, though, tempted to watch just for that kooky interior designer. Maybe he could manage Billy and Chuck?
The even scarier part about this train wreck of a show is that it has apparently set a Neilsen record for a cable series premiere with at 5.5 rating. Compare that to the 0.7 that the 10 pm Sunday time slot usually gets on E!
But how could you not give it a shot if there was nothing better on, and there wasn't here, givent the potential for an extended Farrah on Letterman experience? Of course, I didn't make it through more than about 5 minutes and I won't go back.

We watched a little of the Biography that was on before the show and that was plenty. With all the freakin' commericals they kept showing for the show, I don't see how anyone could see any purpose in watching this pile.
He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.
5.5? FIVE POINT FREAKING FIVE?! Alright, that's it, pull up the truck, throw the whole damn human race in the back, and drop it off somewhere far away. Time to start over with a new group of creatures to populate the planet, as this one obviously is beyond help or hope.
This is seriously one of the most depressing things I've heard in a long time. You really can sell anyone anything with enough effort I guess.
You never know when you'll meet that special someone... the someone that's mysteriously blind to your flaws. or, you know, stupid enough not to realize that yes, you really are that cynical.
Hey, when the 5.5 (or 4.1, whichever number you believe) gets cut in half this next week, everything will be back to normal. Hell, I watched a few minutes of it, and then realized that I never want to see ANS again. I'm pretty sure that more people will be like me and avoid the show like the plague from now on.

Never get excited over the first weeks ratings as they tend to be an abnormality. The real key will be what the ratings are after Week 4.

I'm with Zed on this one... it's rather humorous to hear wrestling fans (I'm assuming that the majority of you are wrestling fans) criticizing the viewing habits of others.
Our esteemed leader said:Didn't people say the same things when wrestling was getting ratings like this?
I couldn't agree more. Shouldn't wrestling fans be the champions of all things gaudy and outcast from "normal" society? Or at the very least, keep their mouths shut instead of going on and on about how they "can't believe anyone would watch that crap! Ugh, society is fucked."? Just a thought...

Oh yeah, snopes is invaluable. Great place to check for suspect "news stories" that get mass e-mailed. If you're looking for books of urban legends, anything by Jan Harold Brunvand is worth taking a look at.
