Spying on Myself

Last night I took one for the Junkette team and checked out Spying on Myself on A&E, the new reality show Bailey thought looked intriguing from the previews she saw while on her sick couch last week. And . . . interesting idea, horribly uninteresting execution. I had to fast-forward through much of it, which is saying something because it's only a half hour show and how much boring footage can a half-hour show cram in? (That's a rhetorical question, but if you need an answer my estimate is 27 minutes.) It was just . . . dull. From a situation that you'd think would have all sorts of drama (eavesdropping on conversations about YOU), the producers managed to ring not even a little bit, while the strain of trying to make something happen was painfully evident. Don't bother.
