OK, I thought I'd give today's show a chance, but the teen moms didn't seem to have a clue about kids. The comment from the one mom - it was is the tease - about people not realizing how hard it is on them or something to that affect really makes my blood boil. They want it all at the expense of their children.

What is going on with this show, pandering to the reality tv crowd - I'm done.

The only part of today's 'Anderson' that I liked was the girls from Teen Mom, especially Farrah. The other two were from Teen Mom 2 and I really don't watch that. Anyone who thinks Teen Mom glamorizes teens having kids really needs to look at the show. It shows it as it is and doesn't sugar coat it.

With the death of Whitney Houston on everyone's mind, it makes shows like "Anderson" which is taped weeks in advance, much less relevant. Not that is was relevant to begin with.
Really, who cares about any of these topics when your mind is somewhere else.
My mind was somewhere else even before Whitney's death, but what a bore of a topic or topics for the week.
Taping live is for the here and now and in the moment and that's why shows like TDS will always do well.
It is and always will be relevant.

ACAnderFan you sound like a reality show junkie. Sorry but there is more to life than Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. As for Whitney's death I saw something on FaceBook that Hilary Rosen posted - 1 dies a million cry, a million die one cries that sums up my feeling about Whitney's death - I am over it. Three days of nonstop talk is too much.

@anonymous 9:38pm I do watch a good bit of reality TV. I watch more reality tv than scripted tv.

Ugh. I've seen this pop up here many times before. What is up with people getting online thrashings because they watch reality tv? Or having their intelligence questioned because of it. It's like assuming someone who eats burgers must eat a lot, and must be fat. Seriously some people need to get down from their ivory tower.

@ Judy. I know while the show was taped before Whitney's death, it was taped less than a week ago. I think it really depends on the story. Like he jumped on the Penn State stuff. And I know the episode I saw filmed aired less that 24hrs later. But yeah other stuff is filmed weeks in advance. I don't know (or understand) how they work over there.

@acanderfan I've never watched any of the Teen Mom shows, but a friend of mine had concerns about her daughter watching it, until one day she came up to her with her eyes wide declaring that after watching that, she never wanted to get pregnant! Then my friend decided maybe it wasn't such a bad idea.

9:38PM: Very profound statement and true.
But with Whitney Houston, she did open a lot of doors for other entertainers of color, especially women.
And she came up the hard way.
She started singing at school and in church.
Unlike Bieber on UTube, and instant success.
