The Latest Trend in TV Show Names

scrotal recallYou’ve seen some or all of them:

“Full Frontal With Samantha Bee”

“Scrotal Recall”

“Californication”

“Schitt’s Creek “

“Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23”

“$#*! My Dad Says”

And maybe The Curmudgeon has missed some.

Is this an attempt to shock us? To appall us? To attract attention? To inspire protests that attract attention (and viewers)?

And are we finding that the most interesting thing about some of these series is…the title, and that the creativity behind the program begins and ends with the title?
