14-Year-Old iTunes TV Critic Can’t Quite Wrap Head Around Tabloid Wars

tabloid_wars_itunes_reviews.jpg

Bravo is offering Tabloid Wars as a free iTunes download, allowing 14-year-old television critics and others to review it.

Writes “Tre“:

I didn’t enjoy this show very much, but I’m not trying to rate it on my personal opionion but on the quality of the show. It was informative of how stories actualy get in the paper and how different papers compete against one another. Obviously, it was cut and edited so it is a very narrow presentation into this field, but informative. It was entertainment, but I wasn’t really enjoying it. A lot of the show just consists of different reporters talking to each other to find information. It is like watching the high points of a reporters job. In my, 14 year old, opionion, I found it bland and would much rather watch something like curb your enthusiasm, lost, or family guy.

Others were confused by the War part of the title:

An anonymous, one-star review: The only war part is when a reporter shows up at a scene and another one got there first, OH MY GOD WHAT A WAR THAT IS.

BORING … Could there be anyone who leads a more worthless professional life?

We’re pretty sure that last one was Adrian Grenier, though.
