    Anyone watching Nik Wallenda walking across Niagara Falls on a high wire?

    ABC bought the rights and part of the deal was he had to wear a wire, essentially ruining the whole thing.

    There have been some rumors that he'd take off the harness about halfway through.

    This is so reminiscent of the 70s and Evel Knievel. Primetime network TV hasn't had stunt stuff like this in quite a while.

    That faraway shot they just showed really proved how tiny he is up there.

    Did he just say he felt like a jack off in between all of his prayers?

    I'm pretty sure the network isn't too pleased with all the religious comments.

    His dad asked him about the harness. He said he feels like a jackoff, then said jackass.
    Which is worse for TV?

    When he gets to the other side, Joe Rogan will be there with six contestants ready to go back the other way, but you'll have to change to NBC to see it.

    How hard can it be if he can carry on a conversation during this?
