1. It's set in Georgetown. Where all the best clubs are frat boy hangouts. The problem is: frat boy drunken tomfoolery - from going through the drive thru with a blow up doll on the driver's lap to dropping watermelons off the library balcony - only amuses the direct participant. Anyone who has to watch. Or, god forbid, hear the story over and over and over again (until forced to dump the loser) is unlikely to be amused. It's not good television.
2. It's set in Georgetown. This town just doesn't do uncensored self-expression. From Puck to Omarosa to Tim Gunn, the ONE THING that makes good television is someone willing to say whatever, no matter who will hear it. That doesn't work if you're trying to keep a security clearance. Besides, I'm pretty sure I worked with one of these girls (Or maybe it was just some other well-dressed blond with a habit of throwing up after lunch). She had nothing to say. None of them do. If they did, they'd already be somewhere ELSE. Politicians control the conversation here, and politicians are boring. There is a reason that James Carville with his severe adult ADD, has starred in the only watchable political documentaries in existence. Because all politicians do is answer their phone, duck calls, and have boring, meaningless conversations with people they don't want to offend. Then, sometimes, they offer long-winded speculations about either possible race outcomes or past race outcomes. Then they argue about it forever and no one ever wins because who the hell knows anyway. Like the frat boy problem, this stuff is only interesting if you are a direct participant or a recent victim of a serious head injury.
3. It's set in Georgetown. I've been on the Late Night Shots boards, and it's not that interesting. The racism all seems faked for shock value. (Not that that's ok, but anything like that wouldn't make it on tv anyway). Posters claiming to be girls are either obvious Penthouse-style fakes "I was POUNDED by a tall dark and handsome LNS last night - do you think he'll call?" Or provide lectures on appropriate footwear (Ok, that part I found quite useful. But it's not everyone's cup of tea). There isn't even a can't-turn-away-from-the-car-wreck angle. It's more like a low speed car wreck that you knew was coming and won't matter because their parents will cover any damages.
4. Finally. It's set in Georgetown. Have you been there? Are you KIDDING ME? The residents of Georgetown (deservedly, I think) are so serious about saving their national treasure of a neighborhood that they turn fights over sky lights into to-the-mattresses-wars. Plus 98 percent of them are lawyers. The show's producers can pass out waivers like candy and they're still going to spend the next 15 years in court.
I like reality television. I like Georgetown. Anyone who has paid any amount of attention to either would know that these two things do not belong together.
