“Because television officially ran out of ideas six years ago”

The fantastic blog Deadspin has been a little less-so in the absence of founding editor Will Leitch, who left last year to concentrate on his new gig as contributing editor to New York Magazine.

Nonetheless, I still find myself checking Deadspin daily to get their unique take on the latest from the world of sports. 

And nowhere else on the world wide web can provide the proper perspective on something as ridiculous as The Glorious Return Of The “Superstars”.  One click will bring you all of the requisite links (along with a classic clip from the original “Superstars”) and a great take on the “can’t look away” trainwreck factor of this summer programming, premiering June 23rd on ABC.
