'Real Simple' on a Real Television

You know what we hate about magazines? There's no, like, movement — as in, the pictures don't move on the pages. They're all so still, you know? And then there's the audio problem: you can't hear a single thing the magazine is talking about, right? It's just silent! Seriously, we'd love magazines so much more if they weren't so damn static.

But wait: Real Simple has come to the rescue of illiterates everywhere! Today the Time Inc. fluffjob announces that it'll be gracing PBS with a weekly half-hour show (just what PBS needs). Be sure to set the DVR for this one; you'd hate to miss the episode on how your mother can reduce bathroom cabinet clutter.

Full, over-enthusiastic press release after the jump.
