A Web Site Devotes Itself To ‘Stopping Ben Lyons’

lyons_header.jpgA person blogging under the name of “Scott Johnson” is so wildly offended by the very existence of E! personality (and At the Movies replacement) Ben Lyons that he created Stop Ben Lyons: Before He Destroys the Fabric of American Cinema, a virtually daily blog dedicated to tearing Lyons a new one:

“… the situation is just no longer tenable. Not only do I need a more serious film review show on TV, but more importantly BEN LYONS NEEDS TO BE STOPPED! He is making a mockery of one of the hallowed institutions of popular American film-going.”

The blog is interesting in that it’s not as mean-spirited as you might expect of a site devoted to the vehement destruction of another person’s career.

But we question how long this Scott Johnson can maintain this single-issue blog without becoming a bombed-out shell of his former self.

Don’t like Ben Lyons’ reviews, Scott? You’re not alone. But for your own sake, just change the channel… or better yet, e-mail us so we can psychoanalyze you in person!
