How many people go home after a hard day of work or school and turn on the TV to watch Ice Road Truckers? The answer, very few. Who wants to sit in front of the TV and watch a bunch of grisly old truckers talk about driving over the ice and snow of Canada? I, for one, do not. Heck, the only reason I ever have the show on is because the announcers' voice makes me fall asleep. That's probably why the show plays from 11pm to 2am everyday, to help its viewers fall asleep.

The points above are more than enough for a valid argument on why the show is so horrible, but for the sake of debate I'll add a few more.

Ice Road Truckers is horrible because:
-No one other than truckers or the family members of truckers can relate to the TV show.
-No one wants to watch extreme trucking. If anyone wanted to watch extreme trucking a show like this would have come on a long time ago.
-Very few people in life dream of becoming an Ice Road Trucker. I bet the number right now is around 10...

My opponent concedes that the show helps people fall asleep.

Thus, I contend that for people with insomnia, inability to sleep, the show is very beneficial.

Unfortunately for you my good sir, the argument is not whether the show is beneficial, but rather whether or not it is a horrible TV show. Sure, this show may be beneficial for those with insomnia but that still does not answer the question of whether or not it is a good TV show. Therefore, my arguments stand and Ice Road Truckers is still a horrible TV show.

It is clearly not horrible in the mind of those who are now able to sleep.

I agree with mikehughes. All these spin-offs of the Deadliest Catch, get old really fast.
