Dirty Sexy Money: Crappy Silly Show(y)

On Monday we talked about the upcoming premiere of the worst-titled show in history: Happy Candy BlowJob Dirty Sexy Money. Well, last night I checked out the first episode and learned that watching New Booty Diamonds Dirty Sexy Money is no passive affair. Instead, I suffered the three following extreme reactions:

Only Baldwin seemed to strike the right balance of drama and the playfully absurd that a completely ludicrous fluff piece like Steamy Sugar Orgasm Dirty Sexy Money needs to survive.
