Bigfoot experts clash with TV critics!



TV critics took on Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot during a contentious panel at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour in Beverly Hills on Thursday.
 Reporters have spent nearly two weeks in a hotel interviewing actors and executives promoting TV shows, including the Finding Bigfoot show.
A critic points out: If these guys actually find bigfoot, such huge news is not going to really stay quiet until a regular episode of Finding Bigfoot airs. One asks: Has Animal Planet run out of real animals to do shows about? Yet another wonders: First Animal Planet airs a mermaids special, now this — isn’t Animal Planet damaging its brand with this stuff?

Animal Planet’s president, Marjorie Kaplan, is good humored about the situation. “Animal Planet has many shows about animals that may be more familiar to you,” she says. “Finding Bigfoot is an exploration of the secret corners of the planet … There are places on this planet that we know about and places we don’t … New species are being found all the time.” Kaplan also points out that the Mermaid special had a very high rating.
Kaplan's reply was spot on and a very good way to respond. The same maybe can not be said for Matt Moneymaker and  James “Bobo” Fay.

“I’ve had one 15 feet away growling at me,” declares bigfoot researcher Matt Moneymaker. “So that’s why I think it’s [unfortunate] when people say they’re not real. They exist … I don’t think people realize how many witnesses there are out there … For those who don’t think these things exist, [famed primatologist] Jane Goodall thinks they exist** — and she may know a little more about it than you do.”

“You can’t equate bigfoot with mermaids,” said bigfoot researcher James “Bobo” Fay. “You’re ignorant of the subject matter.”

So it was a fiery exchange between the critics and some of the Finding Bigfoot cast, but chances are the "critics" will be watching and hanging on the edge of their seats for each episode.
