More Cruelty on 'Steve Harvey's Big Challenge':

On Sunday, Feb. 13, the Steve Harvey 'Bigtime Challenge' show (WB Ch 11, 9 - 10 pm in NYC, check local listings for time, station, etc) featured diving pigs - as he proudly announced, "From an eight-foot high diving board" into a pool of water appx four feet deep.

Three pigs climbed a narrow ladder to the diving platform; there was obviously no way for them to go back down.

Two pigs hesitantly jumped.  The third animal was OBVIOUSLY TERRIFIED, AND REFUSED.

THE AUDIENCE BEGAN CLAPPING AND YELLING 'JUMP, JUMP' and 'GO PIGGY GO.'  THEN THEY BEGAN STOMPING, YELLING, 'JUMP NOW, JUMP NOW.'  

MORON 'JUDGE' TRACY ROSS, DIANA ROSS' DAUGHTER, YELLED, 'MAN, I COULD SURE GO FOR A BLT!'  STEVE HARVEY YELLED 'BACON AND EGGS!' 'THE PIG IS CHICKEN.'  

THE THIRD PIG FINALLY DEFECATED IN FEAR, WHICH CAUSED STEVE HARVEY TO SCOLD HIM.  NOT ONE DAMN PERSON IN THE ENTIRE STUDIO EXPRESSED THE REMOTEST CONCERN FOR THESE ANIMALS.  THE LAST SHOT WAS OF THIS POOR ANIMAL BACKING UP IN FEAR.  I FELT SICK WATCHING IT.

WHAT IS GOING ON?  ARE WE GOING BACKWARDS AS A SOCIETY?  HAVE WE MADE NO PROGRESS???

THIS SHOW HAS BEEN CITED TWICE BEFORE ON THIS LIST.
