Scheduled to be on CMT 8 pm Wedsday, i feel like a moron even watching the promo. The description from CMT.com reads:
ABOUT THE FILM
Chicken may be just food for most people, but raising the perfect chicken is an all-consuming passion for some. CMT is teaming up with Emmy Award-winning Motto Pictures, also this year’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize (U.S. Documentary) Winner for Weiner, and Emmy nominated director Nicole Lucas Haimes forChicken People, a two-hour documentary that takes a charming and fascinating look at the colorful and hugely competitive world of champion show chicken breeders. A real life Best in Show but about chickens, the film follows the struggles and triumphs of both humans and their chickens on the road to compete at the Ohio National Poultry Show, considered the Westminster of Chickens. Chicken People is produced by Motto Pictures and Haimes Film, with Julie Goldman, Caroline Kaplan, Chris Clements, and Terry Leonard producing. Nicole Lucas Haimes executive produces and Jayson Dinsmore, Lewis Bogach and John Miller-Monzon executive produce for CMT
Ok I’m sure some of ya’ll are saying “So its just a chicken movie…whats the big deal”. The big deal is CMT (which is COUNTRY MUSIC Television the last I checked) keeps throwing stupid shit out there that makes Country Music like like a joke. Why of all things have a documentary about people that moreless molest chickens to win a trophy, when you could make a documentary about a country star or a legend ( you know actually living up to the name) instead of this bs or even stupider trash like Party Down South for example.
The network only has 5 hours of music videos a day, maybe 15 played over and over, that even remotely qualify and music let alone Country Music. And thats it, unless its time for the CMT awards, which are a joke anyway. Its bs to me that 19 hours of the day are filled with crap such as Roseanne, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Last Man Standing, Random movies etc.Ill take back one hour for the inclusion of Reba, but thats still 18 hours where not shit has to do with Country Music!
CMT has earned its reputation over the 10 to 12 years of being a joke because of the horrible original programing they sell to the masses. They either need to make CMT country agian, or lose the name altogether. Please quit making a mokery of Country Music and the fans that love it so much. Show a little respect instead of riding a name to pad your ass.
