    Are you sure you weren't watching a different late night HBO show since you claimed to have seen men in showers and what not?

      You really should watch the show before attempting to judge it.
      Look, you have your opinion and I have mine. Neither of us is likely to change the other's opinion which is fine with me. I simply can't see how having a TV production crew on site isn't a distraction.

      You are talking about what you see, not what it takes to make all of that happen. It's a distraction, as far as I'm concerned. I'd rather they didn't participate. If they are forced to, then they'll have to deal with it.

        false

        Sights and Sounds does not go into meeting rooms, classrooms, and coach conferences

          It was an honest mistake on his part, the show in question isnt hard KNOCKS

            I have HBO. But if I didn't and the Giants were on Hard Knocks. I would subscribe just to watch it.

              What season did you watch? I have watched almost every season and recall nothing that fits your description of the show.

                As I said before, I have watched a handful of episodes over the 8 seasons it was filmed. The "snapping towels" was hyperbole for emphasis. I assumed (wrongly, it appears) that would be understood.

                  Bingp.

                    every year the Super Bowl breaks the spike in viewers to the previous year, why is it hard to believe that depending on which team is on hard knocks the viewing will spike.
                    I said "globally", which means international. And I am one of the "displaced fan in a different state", so, no, I didn't forget that.

                      Well, THERE's a spike, right there. You got me, Morehead.

                        Ok, I was being a tad dramatic with the towels and such, to make my point. Shoot me.

                        FWIW, I watched a Ravens episode, one from the first Dallas show, one from last year's Bengals, and the Miami one a year before, when Chad Johnson was humiliated even more than he embarrassed himself, due to his head butting of his wife. Nice.

                        • As much as I dont want the giants to be picked, I would still watch it because I'm a fan. Guilty pleasure I guess

                              Apologies overlooked that for the premise of your argument.
                              Fact is that regardless of who is on there the ratings are gonna spike, even if it was the same team as last year or whatever year last it aired. I only watched two episodes myself, the one with chad ocho and the one where the bengals let go a lineman other than that it didn't strike my interest, but if you put my team on there then I might be tempted to watch. It's those fans the ones like me that will spike that rating.
