I tried watching this mid-2013 when I was trying to forget about Dance Moms.
I've only seen a handful of episodes (and those last year). I didn't really get the potty humor, eating habits, and some other stuff; but the people got along, seemed to love each, and weren't fighting. I kind of expected them to be miserable (based on photographs in reviews), but they weren't that either.
Anyway, I worked on some of the templates here; and I still stop by to undo super-obvious vandalism, since there's no active admins or anything.
