My first thought when forwarded this article announcing a new ABC show called "Celebrity Wife Swap" was that somebody was playing an elaborate practical joke on me, and a pretty funny one. Astute readers will recall my item (and accompanying chart) last week revealing that the audience for Donald Trump's NBC show, "Celebrity Apprentice," is by far the most liberal on primetime television, which adds a frisson of extra idiocy to Trump's already idiotic undertaking. Readers may also recall my subsequent item, pointing out that the same audience-demographic data shows that the second-most-liberal show on television is "Wife Swap." So you can understand my initial skepticism--what sort of warped TV executive would create such a Frankenstein's monster of slavering lowbrow liberal viewership as "Celebrity Wife Swap"?
