Dude just watches all the same stupid fail videos we all do, talks shit about the them with his co-workers, and gets paid tens of millions a year to do so. The show is essentially a mixture of Youtubing, stand-up comedy, and podcasting.  It's probably pretty fun to do. The disgusting part is the profits. A 90% top marginal tax rate like the US had in the '50s and '60s would make the show more palatable. But then who knows if Rob would still want to do it. No great loss if not.

Forget what comedy podcast I saw it on now but apparently they also just machine gun thru them and film like 20 in a standard work day. So it's not just easy work its also fast

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ridiculousness_(TV_series)

28 seasons, I'd guess an average of 35 episodes a season, equates to 980 episodes or 49 filming days.

1 season even has 58 episodes

Can't blame him for hustling Viacom hard where his TV shows were a money printing machine that he later used to buy back AWS / Habitat from the VC company.

The funny this about this is that Rob is now like the last person making money in basic cable television.

Yeah it's actually baffling to me that a show like Ridiculousness can still exist in 2022 but I guess there are still enough cable TV holdouts and people watching in their hotel room to afford Rob a Bel-Air mansion.

On that 9 club interview, i was really impressed with how self aware and humble he was with his skate career. Said something about building his career off like 2 skate parts or a few tricks, something like that.
His self fulfilling prophecy shit was a little much.

Read a super interesting article how once people start making a lot of money it becomes addicting. Wish I had that link. I find rob pretty fascinating and funny still til this day. I thought the recent 9 club interview was great.

Itís inspiring to see a skater thrive especially later on in life.

I wish we could all agree to never be impressed by rich peopleís self indulgent purchases.  There should be some shame in how selfish people are with their money when they have enough for generations.  Other than that, good for him, glad he got to pay to pretend to have the job of car designer.

These shows cost next to nothing to produce and can be syndicated around the world for decades. Itís insanely profitable.

Dyrdek is great at ruining things for his own benefit.

It is amazing how he played a big role in the death of Mtv, but made himself rich from its death and it is amazing how he played a role the Olympicization of skateboarding and SLS can't seem to make profit, but he made money for himself through this venture.

Dyrdek is an amazing capitalist, he creates no value for anyone and doesn't make society better, but somehow gets richer and richer. He's basically an uncool Frank Reynolds at this point.

Why not just watch anything else in the world, youíre too hungover to change the tv channel to king of the hill or something? for five hours you are so hungover that you donít fall asleep or something you just watch ridiculousness for five hours? are you in bed watching terrestrial tv? on an actual tv? but you canít change the channel? the remote would have to be right there, even if you were on a couch in the living room or something. you didnít have an opportunity to change it? you just went all in on watching ridiculousnes for five hours? why didnít you watch anything else? you willingly watched ridiculousness with rob dyrdek for five hours? you didnít switch the channel for commercials? you sat through the commercials? if you didnít then you had to switch channels to another show, but you would switch back when the commercials on ridiculousness were done? Or would you switch back when the commercial on your backup show was done? Iím having a hard time wrapping my head around this whole scenario. you didnít get up to go to the bathroom or get water or something? You didnít have a single opportunity to change the channel? why would you that to yourself.
