Yes and I found it classless when he did it. CBS could have easily edited it out. They have plenty other crap to choose from. They had to know the backlash they would get but they probably hoped it would help ratings.

Default Big Brother

Network TV is nothing but garbage. I havent watched it in 35 years and suggest you all do the same.

Uh, well...*chuckles* thanks for the tip, big daryle, but I didn't watch this on TV. A friend who is also a parent of an autie sent it to me via email.

I enjoy various programs, usually found on the Food Network, A&E, TLC, or HGTV. That's only if I have time--which, for the most part, I don't.

Even if they did not show it on tv it would have been seen on the live feed and word would have gotten around. It was very rude though and if he worked for me I would be having a very serious talk with him when he got back to work.

I used to watch it all the time. I caught a few minutes of it last night... classic moment where one guy made some very cruel comment about a girl's dad who committed suicide.

I am sooo OVER reality TV!

I seriously can't see that this oaf has a job to come home to. If I was a parent of one of the kids he supposedly works with, I would want his head on a plate for that nasty comment. (figuratively, of course.)

I don't see why anyone cares what this guy said. There will always be stupid people around, sorry but I wouldn't get all worked up over this guy.
