And just how does that make it a stupid sport?
For some of us, sports are based on physical and intellectual challenges, not on popularity with spectators.
If you prefer to watch rather than participate, and if your preference as to what you watch is based on how many others also watch, then by all means go watch. But don’t go pitting sports for being stupid on that basis. Hey, whatever floats your boat (oops, I forgot, you don’t paddle, you couch potato or whatever the verb form for couch potatoing might be).
