Yes, I have a problem: I watch "One Tree Hill"

I'm a little ashamed to admit that I watch "One Tree Hill" religiously. I'm not sure why, since usually I proudly espouse the virtues of shows that others deride (e.g. "Degrassi: The Next Generation," "What I Like About You"). Maybe it has something to do with how patently trashy and ridiculous all the adult storylines are (i.e. any plot involving Dan and/or Deb). Contrived intrigue involving teenage characters is one thing — kids are idiots, everyone knows that — but am I actually supposed to believe half the atrocities that Dan commits?

Luckily for me, there was very little adult drama in tonight's episode. However, that meant more screen time for Chad Michael Murray, which apparently is unfortunate for some viewers. It turns out that there's been some kind of backlash against CMM (as he's been dubbed) since his split with co-star Sophia Bush. I had read in Entertainment Weekly that she cited fraud in her petition for annulment, which definitely piqued my curiosity. Sadly, I haven't been able to find any details on CMM's fraudulent offense. But I did locate news about one of CMM's more recent tresspasses, reported with delightful antogonism on this blog. Now that's the kind of drama I like to see!
