Well, there's less than four weeks left for "Fashion House" on My58. And now, even I must admit that this show, which I had tried to convince at least three other viewers in the My58 viewing area to watch, has hit rock bottom.
And I do mean hit hard.
I did my civic duty Tuesday night and took in the election returns on the more serious-minded networks. I don't know what happened Monday night, but I think I watched football.
So Wednesday night was the first night in a week or so that I could catch up with "Fashion House." And what started as a show about, uh, a fashion house in L.A. has turned into a show with two women (Bo Derek, Morgan Fairchild) exchanging no fewer than six face slaps in a county jail visiting room; a guy getting snuffed out with a plastic bag, and this real low-life character operating a credit-card fraud business out of something that resembles the studio junk lot where "Sanford and Son" was filmed.
Hey, I'm all for the fashion and the passion, but bumping off folks was not what I had signed up for. And Bo's character in jail, with women making booze out of water and fruit stored under a mattress? I'm starting to think the writers have fallen off their stilettos.
The network has announced that "Fashion House," and its lead-in show, "Desire," will wrap up on Dec. 5. After that, two more passion in prime-time shows will debut.
I guess I'll see this one through, if nothing else than to see if sweet Michelle gets her design dreams off the ground. After that, I'm making no commitments to the new stuff. Besides, I'd rather watch Jimmy Stewart have a meltdown on "It's a Wonderful Life."
