For a while now, we’ve known that “More to Love,” Fox’s “Batchelor” with fatties show, was in the pipeline. Fox has been rightfully derided for this waste of a show from Day One because, while the overweight seem to be one of the only groups it’s generally still acceptable to mock and belittle anymore in our PC-ified culture, it’s one thing to crack a fat joke and another to intentionally humiliate people just because they’re big and lonely. Which is, of course, exactly what we all figured “More to Love” would be about.
Now that there’s a 30-second ad out, it turns out the show’s going to be even worse than we thought. It would be one thing if this was an utterly tasteless mockery of the Lane Bryants of the world. “Look at all these poor lards who can only find love on the bottom shelf of their fridge!” At least then some folks could get all good and riled up about how offensive and base Fox is. But Fox clearly had a more insidious plan, it seems. Because “More to Love” looks like it’s not going to be low-brow and offensive, it’s just going to be mind-shatteringly dull. If you watch this show, I gar-on-tee that your brain will slowly drip out of your ears and nostrils and get lost in your sofa cushions. And then Fox will have you exactly where they want you. What they intend to do with their new lobotomized army, I can’t tell you. But I’ve got my shotgun pumped and I’m fucking ready, so bring it Fox!
