Bill Brownstein executed a selfless mission: he sacrificed one full week of his life at the altar of a satellite-equipped television in order to produce the cynical and hilarious cultural commentary that is DOWN THE TUBE. It's a laugh-out-loud ride through the seediest and most appalling corners of the television universe, from the muckraking depths of daytime talkshows to the wildly (and inexplicably?) popular heights of the prime-time trivia wars. Brownstein is an expert and irreverent guide. His observations range from the insightful to the goofy to the risquÇ, but he never strays from his central task: to show the familiar world of television in a new light-one that makes us laugh as much as it makes us think: 'What on earth are we watching?' Brownstein answers the question, show by show, minute by minute, page by uproarious page.
