Restaurant Stakeout, to Painful to Watch

Or rather too painful to watch.

And that's just the host. Loud and obnoxious, and barking through the whole show. A total jackass and living up to all negative New Yorker/ New Jersey or whatever stereotypes. This show could be good but they've ruined it with this idiot.

There was another thread on this a while back. The common consensus was that it was too horribly staged to watch. Combined with the obnoxious host and I only managed to watch a couple episodes.

I watched the first episode and had a feeling it was fake. Then I watched the newest episode last night and was convinced it is fake. It seemed interesting in the trailer though.

premise = potential.

execution = fail.

There were a couple in a row this weekend. I caught the first one from half-way through...and by half-way through the second one I had already found other things to do.

Yeah, besides it being painfully fake. As my Wife said "Like the employees don't see those HUGE cameras hanging down in the ceiling!!"

The host just beyond kills it
