In my opinion (and the opinion of millions of others), “Pawn Stars” is the best show on the History Channel. The History Channel might agree, but they’re putting $3.5 million behind “Swamp People” with the purchase of a 30-second ad promoting the series in this year’s Super Bowl.
Don’t get too excited, because “Swamp People” isn’t nearly as cool as it sounds. Instead of being about mutated, flesh-eating, half-human swamp creatures who feast on unsuspecting campers, it’s a show about mostly normal humans who live in a swamp and drink lots of beer. I’ve never actually seen the show, so I can’t say for sure if the subjects drink lots of beer, but I’m assuming they do because they live in a freakin’ swamp.
