The television show I worked for, MDN, has just launched its staggeringly awful website.

Okay, I get it. The idea is to make it look corny and cheesy - like the sort of awful website some inexperience dude might make. But instead it falls horribly flat, and is painful on every level to look at. It's provides no actual information, and it's attempts at "humor" (where I can detect them) fall horribly flat. Purposefully bad grammar and spelling do not make it any "realer". They just make it stupid.

The show, in case you're wondering, airs at 1am on the SpikeTV network starting on July 10th. It was a comedy/variety show sponsored by Mountain Dew, and it is everything you'd expect from a comedy/variety show sponsored by a giant, soulless soda corporation.

There are some interesting things on the show, and some stuff I'm proud of. But given the complete and utter lack of any advertising on SpikeTV's part, and now this crappy website, I am less and less enthusiastic.

Watch it if you get a chance, let me know what you think.
