I HATE Joe Rogan

As my daughter watches the decline and fall of modern civilization, or as she calls it Fear Factor, I am reminded, as always, how much I hate Joe Rogan.

First of all, it is incredibly sad what people will do just to get their 15 minutes of fame. Sadly, the show even included a Parents and Children special, so its sad what people will do to their children for 15 minutes of fame.

But the biggest reason I hate Joe Rogan is I blame him for the downfall of The Man Show. Yes it was sophomoric, yes it was sexist and yes it was stupid. But it was also funny, at least that is until Joe Rogan and co-host Doug Stanhope took over.

Luckily G4TV is showing reruns of The Man Show, sans Rogan and Stanhope and have billed it, "the way Jimmy and Adam made it."

And now, girls jumping on trampolines!

The thing about the Man Show was that it revolved entirely around the hosts. I can't imagine anyone could've replaced those guys. It started in poor taste but funny. Removing the "funny" part from the equation was a very poor idea.

Even though I am a girl...I really liked the Man was a sad, sad day after Jimmie and Adam left.

I so completely agree with you on both counts, Mike. First, I cannot stand Joe Rogan. That guy is the most obnoxious, unfunny, pitiful excuse for a television personality (well, right behind Carson Daly).
Secondly, the Man Show used to be hilarious with Jimmy and Adam as hosts. I tried watching one or two with Joe and that other spare, and all I got out of it was the satisfaction of having seen some nice breasts -- but no humor.
But then, I miss Win Ben Stein's Money, with good old Jimmy as cohost...

I'm not a Rogan guy either, but he does do a pretty good job calling the fights for the UFC.

I never cared about the man show..but dude...the rain.... rogan is the worst thing to happen to the ufc since they included weight classes...i remember watching ufc 1-9 back when they didn't have weight classes, didn't have gloves, and they didn't have could stomp guys on the ground...and the reff couldn't stop the fight unless you were knocked out...if you had a broken arm and no teeth but you had the balls to continue...anyways..those were the days...and now we have this gay shit with Joe "the twat stripe" Rogan
