Welcome to the troubled world of Sellevision, America's premier retail broadcasting network. When Max Andrews, the much-loved, handsome (but lonely) and gay host of Slumber Party Sundown accidentally exposes himself in front of 60 million kids and their parents during a "Toys for Tots" segment, Sellevision faces its first big scandal. As Max fails to find a new job in TV, another host, the popular and perky Peggy Jean Smythe, is receiving sinister e-mails from a stalker about her appearance.

This is the first audiobook I've completed (second attempted) and I really enjoyed it. The narration was great - I was happy with the changes between characters and I found the narrators voice to be pleasant. The story itself was funny, engaging and sometimes dark. I felt that even though there was an ensemble cast everyone was given a good amount of time and I wasn't left wondering where anyone's story left off. If you're looking for something that will hold your interest I definitely recommend this.
