Work It: an insult to everyone's intelligence

I don't live in the USA, so I've been spared exposure to the current example of media stupidity doing the rounds: Work It. This is a TV sitcom loosely inspired by the classic film Seven Year Itch.

In spite of universal condemnation and pleas not to be so bloody stupid and insensitive, ABC aired the first episode this week. It was panned from here to the Moon and back.
