America is a damn joke.

    I can't believe that the USA would produce a show entitled "Marriage Ref". Wherein a panel of celebrities watch footage of a married couple fight and proceed to comment, joke, judge and ultimately decide a "winner". The American people gobble this tripe right up yet they are in uproar when the thought of same sex marriage comes up.

    The US has no issue making a mockery of marriage with such shows as "Marriage Ref" but wouldn't DARE sully the sanctity of the institution of marriage by allowing two people who love each other who happen to be of the same gender enter into such a union.

    I just don't get it.

    Of course the show is terrible.
    Jerry Seinfeld thought it was a great premise, but it's just lame.
    He should have run it by Larry David before he went ahead with it.

    Gay marriage is coming, and sooner than you might think.
    Why, it's already here (up in Canada) and in several New England states.

    TV executives are afraid of putting anything intelligent on the air. They know that most of the people watching are either bored or really stupid.

    Kind of an extreme thread title for an example of little substance.

    I don't think you should blame America for having shows like this, it's really the media that's at fault, and if you've seen the reality/game shows at other countries, you would know that these American shows are actually pretty soft.

    I think it's actually not a bad idea to provide some sense of humor to this type of issue that is more serious in real life. Perhaps when people watch this show at home, they'll feel that the fights and arguments they are having are just as silly as the one they are watching and rather than holding grudges against each other, they would look back at those times of bickering with a good sense of humor?
