Pictured are the good old days of The Jackson 5, one of the greatest groups in the history of music.
Yes, they were that damn good.
You know the one in the front - that's Michael, back before the skin treatments, countless surgeries and prolonged coverage of his death on CNN.
But can you name the other four Jacksons?
Interestingly enough, most people will probably remember Tito for the sole reason that his name is Tito and there weren't a whole lot of kids on your block named Tito. At least not where I lived.
The others are Jermaine, Marlon and Jackie, and they're coming to A&E with replacement / other brother Randy.
Yep, this is what our world has come to.
The most famous of the five-some dies, cable news channels cover it ad nauseum and the other members of the family find some way to capitalize on the coverage with a Reality TV show courtesy of A&E.
"Hey, Michael died and they're covering the crap out of it. We're pseudo-relevant again. We should reunite and do a cable TV show about it!"
Yeah, because that's always a good way to cash in on the remorse people feel over the passing of your incredibly talent / exceptionally odd brother.
Seriously, what the hell is A&E thinking?
How could the home of such insightful and educational programs as Dog the Bounty Hunter and Gene Simmons: Family Jewels sink to this level...
What's worse is that the only thought running through my head right now is, "If this show was on TLC, would Kate Gosselin be the new host?"
This is our world people... celebrities are dead, their less-talented siblings are stars and Kate Gosselin is the most famous women in North America.
Somebody shoot me.
