R.I.P. "Targeted Women"

Hello All,

Many of you who follow the blog probably know of my love for Sarah Haskins, the host of CurrentTV’s “Targeted Women.” The show had been a comedic, feminist beacon of criticism for all the crazy products that companies target toward women. Unfortunately, the Haskins era has come to an end (moment of silence). I know, I know, you are all probably just as sad and outraged as I am, but there is hope.

CurrentTV has brought in Erin Gibson to do a new series that follows the general theme of Haskins’ show. There was even a symbolic passing-of-the-torch ceremony (or, in this case, golden tampon) to usher in the new era of Gibson.

Gibson’s show is called “Modern Lady.” It might be a little too early to say whether or not she lives up to the standard that Haskins has set, but I am still excited to hear her views.
