On “What Not to Watch,” each week a new, regular person who was volunteered by a friend or relative is made fun of for the TV shows and movies they have scheduled to record on their DVR and own on DVD. Then the hosts throw out their DVD collections and their recording schedules, to be replaced with what the hosts consider to be better viewing. The new selection usually includes “What Not to Watch.” But not “What Not to Wear.”
This is just too hilarious not to share:
Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories. But two things made me take it down.
