The second aspect is the vile, sycophantic “comedian” (who has yet, in the five episodes I’ve seen been even a teeny tiny bit funny) Johnny V. V reveals himself in his most heinous pig-likeness in the episode where he “sets up” Baio with a pizza girl who is actually a stripper (the focus of the show is that Baio, per “Dr. Ali” has to stay celibate for two months/eight weeks.

But then, the episode before is pretty horrid, too: Baio and his pathetic posse jet over to Palm Springs in one of the sycophants’ Bentley and pick up a group of intoxicated girls out for a bachelorette party. The girls fairly quickly on tell Baio that they were five-years-old when “Charles in Charge” was on.

Now that we’ve revealed Baio for the liar he is (btw, spoiler! he is having a baby with Rene…thus effectively ruining the eight episode run of can he commit?), we have to add that the girls Baio has been with (they are peas in a pod, cut from the same mold, one dim blousy busty – very important to Baio, so he says – blonde after another), seem to kind of get what they’re asking for.

The question is Why? Well, it makes sense for Baio– he’s been out of the limelight for years, (and no, we didn’t forget his regular stint on “Diagnosis Murder”) he probably hopes this will secure him a place on the next season of “The Surreal Life.” And the network? Well, we watched it. But we have gone from having little-to-no opinion of Baio to thinking him a shell of a human being who’s left a string of confused and betrayed big-boobed blondes (many famous).

As for The Two Coreys, we really think there are probably enough fans from the mid-80s who still have a fond spot for the once teen idols. BTW, Baio was a teen idol (yup, in our youth), too. All three were plastered around Teen Bag, Tiger Beat, Teen Bean, 16 and the successors to those magazines.
