Channel 10’s ‘The Shire’ Pulls In 913,000 Viewers For Its First Run – A Salute To Australia’s Obsession With Being Braindead F*ckwits

Coming in #11 for the day Channel Ten’s repugnant THE SHIRE almost took out 1,000,000 viewers and came in line ball with THE AMAZING RACE for the night. Showcasing an Australian “Jersey Shore” cast it is shows like this that infuriate me dear reader. The morbid curiosity for us to watch the very lowest rung of the human gene pool for entertainment is really concerning. The fact that twitter and facebook were alive with jibes during and afterwards – what does it say about us?

Only time will tell but I would assume, considering the chatter, this time next week you’ll see THE SHIRE in the top 10.

THE SHIRE airs on CHANNEL TEN in AUSTRALIA.
