Read it and Weep

It's August again and that means time for TV networks to drop their biggest turds on America. This year we pick three fine examples of cheap summer programming.

Stars Earn Stripes is NBC's post-Olympic explosion fest. Fake celebrities shoot real guns at fake enemies. They win real money for real charities but mostly they just talk about how great the military is.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is TLC's spinoff of Toddlers in Tiaras. If you're the most messed-up family on T in T, you are a train wreck of epic proportions. And if you're a train wreck of epic proportions, you're on TLC.

Oh Sit! is a game show on the CW that you've never heard of. It's like musical chairs but ... more complicated. You'll never hear about it again.
