Did you watch the new show "Marriage Ref'' Sunday night. I missed it but the premise I read about sounded interesting. Jerry Seinfeld was having a fight with his wife over something silly in front of a guest who was about to excuse himself. Jerry said don't leave, we need a ref. I don't want to talk about this for three hours. The wife said that's a TV show. Seinford can't remember what they were arguing about.
So they sold the idea to NBC and the whole premise is that married couples argue about silly things -- like whether the dining room table is just for Thanskgiving or the husband can use it for a poker game. Not the big stuff like, say, sex and money. And then they have a marriage ref to arbitrate. The concept has already been sold to foreign companies so our friends in Australia will be able to see their version.
If you watched the show, I'd be curious about your reaction. And don't we all have silly fights fights with our spouses and think when it's over, why did we fight about that? Do you agree?
P.S. Speaking of TV shows, the final show of the Bachelor is tonight and the guy picks from he final two. There are web sites that have revealed the winner but I can't remember which one it is. I've written about this show before but it continues to fascinate me that it gets good ratings because the couples never stay together. I just watch the last 15 minutes of the last couple of shows in each series to see the loser go home crying like she (or he on the Bachelorette) has just lost the love of her/her life when they barely know each other.
Also, if you have HBO, Katie Morgan will have a 30-minute show on the History of Porn Thursday at 11 p.m. She's a porn actress but she's actually funny (or has good writers) and the show is kind of fascinating pointing out that as soon as the movie camera was invented, porn was a popular topic. Also, Morgan is nude during the show and the strange thing is that after a while, it's no big deal because she's not doing anything erotic but is standing there talking. She shows nudity can become routine. Really!!!
