Game Show Network’s ‘Mind of a Man’ only occasionally rises out of the gutter

I am a man. I have a mind. So naturally, I was curious to watch the game show “Mind of a Man” (10 p.m., Wednesdays, Game Show Network).

Two female contestants must guess how men responded to survey questions. They can turn to three celebrities for guidance as well as occasional guest Ted Lange, who played bartender Isaac on “Love Boat.” A correct answer earns $200 to $300. The winner of the match-up goes for a $10,000 grand prize.

Is the show misogynistic? Low-minded? Lewd? You bet!

Sample question: What would a man do if a woman he hooked up with asks for payment: Protest? Pay up? Or call the cops?

Comedian Kym Whitley noted she always asks for the money up front.

Lange chimed in: “Speaking from personal experience, I paid the bitch.”

The contestants guess. Then host DeRay Davis reveals the top answer: “Protest.”

Excuse me: My mind needs to go take a shower.

P.S. In all fairness, sometimes the show rises from the gutter as it “reveals insights” into the “crazy minds of men.” For example: Men prefer staples to paper clips.

Marc Silver has been watching TV since the days when people wrapped aluminum foil around TV antennae to improve reception.
