This week, Lifetime — the Network for Women — renewed “The Client List” for a second season of 15 episodes based on the early popularity of the drama. Now, I’ve never seen the show. In fact, all I know about the show is from TK’s real-time review of the pilot, and his assessment of the show wasn’t exactly great: “It’s the dumbest fucking hour of television in the history of dumb fucking television.” So why would the dumbest fucking hour of television in the history of dumb fucking television be so popular? My first thought was: Well, Jennifer Love Hewitt’s cleavage, obviously. According to TK, “J-Lo-Hew’s cleavage is magical. It listens to your problems, it fixes marriages.” But discounting the lesbian demographic, why would J-Lo-Ho’s magical cleavage be such a huge draw on Lifetime: The Network for Women?
It was a real head scratcher. Then I did some sleuthing on tumblr.
Now I understand.
