HUGH DOWNS. HOW COULD YOU?

The first word that popped into my mind was "creepy." That creepy infomercial about alleged "natural" health cures now features Hugh Downs as host, interviewing the creepy nobody "doctor." I can't believe I'm the only one who thinks people drain their good reputations when they agree to do commercials of any kind -- but especially so when they do cheesy informercials for health scams. I will spend a little, not too much, energy trying to find out why Hugh has done this to himself, and us. (The TV Squad beat me to "creepy." Go see their rant.)

Actually, I was shocked to see Hugh Downs pretending to be an impartial host on an infomercial.

He did it for the money.

Show me the money!
