Emmy Caliber Programming

This, ladies and gentleman, is a sign that we’ve officially run out of ideas for decent television shows.   We’ve now resorted to selecting arbitrary blue-collar professions, and sending camera crews to follow the gentleman and ladies employed in that field. How do we even think they came up with the idea for these fine examples of American television ingenuity?   Were there other occupations that were in the running for similar style television shows?  I wanna know what South Beach Tow was up against, and what it had to offer that a show that followed, say, a troupe of plumbers in Reno, Nevada wouldn’t have been able to provide to viewers.   Maybe it’s sex appeal.  It’s near impossible for a female plumber to be sexy, but I suppose some men may find a woman strapping logs to the flat bed of an 18-wheeler attractive.
