Just bad all around.

Another horrible "reality" show. Obvious set up drama and scenes. Some violence and bad language.

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Car Lot Rescue underscores the three areas -- selling, managing, and offering fantastic customer service -- that dealerships must excel at in order to have any hope of success, especially in today's economic climate. It also reveals some of the tricks of the trade, like keeping potential customers on the phone, in order to make a sale.

Granted, some dealerships feature behavior so bad that you have to wonder if it is scripted in order to make the series more entertaining. But the show's overall messages about hard work, professionalism, respect, and taking pride in what you do, are valuable ones.
