I watch too much TV!

but at  least I think when I watch, not just stare vacantly.... this has led me to a few burning questions:

1.  How the hell does Dateline manage to bust so many online pedophiles?  I mean, nearly every one of the guys they bust KNOWS that Dateline does these sting operations fairly regularly, and many of them show some sign of doubting the "child" they are going to meet, so why do they even bother?   (I know this is simplistic and niave, but it just boggles my mind every time I see a show and they end up catching so many pedophiles.)

2. (This may have been asked before, but what the hell, let's try it again) Does the premise of the new Survivor series offend you? (They are separating the teams by race)  Will you watch it? If so, or if not, does the "race" issue have anything to do with your decision?   

In my case, I'm not going to watch it, but I haven't watched Survivor since season 1.  I don't see what the big deal is about splitting them into race.... if they were rigging the contests so that a certain team would win, or portraying one race as "better" than another (which they may do, I suppose), then it would be a problem.  But, IIRC, there was a season where they were divided into teams by gender - am I forgetting a massive cry of "sexism", or was that not a big deal?

3.  Who won Rockstar: Supernove?  I didn't really watch that either, as I usually watched other shows when it was on, but I caught bits of it.  I DID know enough to have an opinion of all 4 of the finalists, and I liked them all.  Did the guy from TOronto really win?  I heard on the radio that the winner was actually decided weeks ago, and that it would be him.  Have you heard this rumor?  Do you believe it?  Do you agree with the decision?
