"Operation Repo" on TruTV. Can anyone tell me what entertainment value there is in shows like this? Especially this one, since it's all reenactments. Honestly though, is it really that enjoyable to watch people get tickets or get towed or have their possessions taken from them in anything but an extremely low 'at least it's not me' kind of satisfaction? Also, should you happen to have any of these things happen to you, why would you sign the release form to allow it to be televised? That last question also applies to any and all police shows that use actual footage.

"Toddlers and Tiaras" on TLC. Fourth season summer finale. I feel like these pageants would be way less distasteful if the point was to make cute little girls look like, you know, cute little girls. Pigtails, fluffy dresses, mary janes, little girl clothing. The fact that the point seems to be to make them look like tiny versions of grown women is where it turns the corner for me. Aside from the fact that many of the mothers seem absolutely insane. That's troubling as well.
"Truck Stop, Missouri" on Travel
10:30pm: "Jon Benjamin Has a Van" on Comedy Central. First season finale.
