'Storage Wars: Texas': 4.1M casualties

Apparently everything really is bigger in Texas.


In yet another sign that Americans are way, way too fascinated by other people’s stuff, the Tuesday night premiere of A&E’s “Storage Wars: Texas” was the once-highbrow network’s most-watched original series launch ever, with 4.1 million viewers.


You could, of course, argue the definition of “original” here, given that the show’s apparently a spinoff of the network’s most popular series, “Storage Wars,” which follows the fortunes of people who bid on the stuff in storage lockers left by people who’ve stopped paying rent.


Me, I’m just waiting for the inevitable mashup between “Storage Wars” and that other A&E classic, “Hoarders.”

As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
