Desperate for ratings

I just saw an episode of the much hyped "Desperate Housewives". More a case of "Desperate TV company in search of ratings!" In fact the only good thing about the programme was the artistic animations during the opening credits. Other than that, the series was rather predictable. The bored housewife who's husband is never around, the woman whose husband has dumped her for his secretary, the new guy on the block, the gals competing for his attention etc.. etc.. haven't we seen it all before.

If ABC want more viewers, they are going to have to do better than come up with a titillating title. (At least Sex in the City had original storylines!). Fortunately for ABC, I'm not their target audience, whilst millions of sex starved testosterone fuelled males are. I'm sure they'll be tuning into the next episode, and getting off on the fantasy.
