The Carbonaro Effect. After watching a rerun of The Carbonaro effect I started to notice how stupid I thought the show actually was. At first it was something I just watched or used as background noise when not listening to music, or can't listen to music *coughcertainfullscreengames*, while I waited for better shows to come on. It's supposed to be a "hidden camera magic show" which doesn't seem like all that bad an idea on paper but they have this yuppie smartass running it. Mike and his stooges barely "act" out their mechanical reactions to the "tricks". Impractical Jokers. While this show is obviously more interesting than the carbonaro effect, after the first handfull of episodes it started to feel like I seen it all already. A bunch of fools horse around and do stupid to people in public (most likely stooges). I have never got a single laugh out of the entire show I've seen so far. Which shows do you think are top shelf stupid?
