Everytime my wife complains about not having enough time for this or that, I offer up the option that POLYGAMY migh well be the way to eliminate the problem. smiling smiley

But, can a show about (fictional) polygamy attract viewers?

I suppose they have a viewership of 100,000, spread out in 10,000 houses, right?

Leaving aside all of the stories people have about religious nuts marrying and abusing little girls because that could happen anyway and it's not central to the question...

What's wrong with polygamy?

It seems to be a good way to guaranty a familial support structure. Until the last few hundred years, most cultures had some accepted form of polygamy and the bible treats it as dogma (so to speak).

We're all in favor of traditional family values -- just not too traditional.

There ARE cultures which are still practicing polygamy AND incest.

GUYS are ALWAYS in favor of polygamy. But I don't know why, thinking about my ex-wife and some of the ex-girlfriends. God forbid I should have all of THEM in the house together!
