They Should Have Called It "Stay off Their Lawns!"

‘Sunset Daze’ Gives Older Folks Their Reality Show - NYTimes.com: "Ms. Hauncher, along with eight other retirees who live here, star in a new reality show on the WE tv network called “Sunset Daze.” How did the producers find her? “I was out with the Ho’s” — her term for her female posse — “and I guess we looked like fun,” she said. Her only stipulation for signing on? “I didn’t want to come off as a lunatic senior.”

Too late. “Sunset Daze,” which makes its debut on Wednesday night, pushes just that button as it tries to hold its own in the boozy, oversexed reality TV genre. The first episode has commentary on vibrators and going “commando,” slang for not wearing underpants. WE positions the series as “The Golden Girls” meets “Jersey Shore,” the ribald MTV series that spawned Snooki."

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

I'm so proud - this is where my parents live!

If they turn up on the show, however, I'll shoot myself.

From what I've read, "Jersey Shore" is all about people in their 20s being crude and stupid. In this case, I'm not sure that the concept of equal time for seniors is necessarily a good idea.

I can't bear to think of it.
