    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.

    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.

    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.
