Drunk driving reality show coming to TLC

Pin it

Moving ever more swiftly away from the name "The Learning Channel," TLC has picked up the reality TV series D.U.I., which, as you can probably guess, follows people getting pulled over and arrested for driving while drunk. Basically, it will be like COPS but with fewer high-speed chases and more broken lives filled with quiet desperation. I have to assume, though, that not every person they pull over will be drunk — that would rob the show of all the tension. (And maybe during sweeps they can get a crack addict or two?)

But I know what you're thinking: "James, shut up already and show me a video preview of what is obviously my new favorite show! (Sorry, Animal Hoarding, you're bumped down to number two.)" Well, ask and you shall receive:

Quick poll! Which of the following will be more uncomfortable for you, an intelligent TV consumer, to watch: D.U.I., 19 Kids and Counting, Sister Wives, or Toddlers and Tiaras? The answer's probably irrelevant, but TLC should think hard about the fact I could even ask that question.
