E! is vastly underrated. Other than C-Span and basketball and anime, it’s the only thing I can learn from. Specifically: so much on E! is clearly fake, where people in “reality” shows are way too aware of the audience and playing to the camera, that one can learn exactly how not to act on camera. E! might be the best argument I’ve seen for being yourself; when E! is at its snarky best, i.e. “The Soup,” it just lets the ridiculousness of other shows speak via clips.
