I could be wrong but isn't this topic in the wrong place- unless lighthouses osmehow became Italian. :D

I wouldn't waste my time watching any reality show- let alone one as silly as this one.

However I've never quite understood the argument about how portraying people in an accurate manner is wrong- nobody is saying that all those of italian descent are like these people. However there are some that are- that's why stereotypes are stereotypes.

The other salient point is that the end result from this type of outcry is usually to bring something that would have gone by the wayside quickly on it's own low merits more attention than it ever deserved.

Great. Another culturally-incorrect word I have to keep track of that I barely even heard before and had no clue that it was now 'bad'.....This is getting riduculous.

I don't watch 'reality shows' because they're not real....If you want reality, come film at my house, won't get any ratings or sponsers because it's boring by broadcasting standards today.

Give us back our shows of the 50s and 60s.....

Dennis is right, this stuff doesn't deserve attention.

If we had a ‘shake-you-head’ icon, I would use that here….

Everyone having seen the punch by now, since it’s been all over the airwaves the past few days, seems a PR move to ‘remove’ it from the episode…

With ‘anger management’ issues, no way should that guy be a teacher…..

Keeping this under wraps for 4 months must have been an arranged deal…Another PR move…

Just another nail in the moral degradation of American society.
