um...is there anything that ISNT a reality show now?

donald trump (at least his show was decent), then the next sportscenter anchorman (espn - forgot the name), the mark cuban show that flopped, the TWO next great champion boxer shows, that upn fashion show one with the black model, then i see the next great chef reality show and now the next great designer with tommy hilfiger.

everything is now a reality show. im sure next up will be the next great supermarket checkout lady and the next great mail man!

They need to have a reality show called "Boycott Best Buy" where they get a bunch of self-righteous internet posters together and see who can hold out the longest as Best Buy offers progressively better and better deals.

There isn't a reality show about posting on internet forums.

Worthless comments = big no-no.

Worthless thread topics, on the other hand...

If you're only watching reality shows, you're missing a lot of very good shows.

I was shocked to find out there's a silly reality show about "How to become a Hilton" which is hosted by Paris Hilton's mom, and it tries to make some hapless contestants learn how to do things the Hilton way. Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. I saw this on the 20 minute preview in front of movies at Regal theaters.

I totally want to see a whole season of Tiny House. Especially, if it was hosted by some cocky jeff probst-like midget who walked around the house with ease tempting the couple with regular sized items.

That girl from tiny house was pretty hot too.

Why do these insurance company commercial writers not have their own show? They could even have special musical guests like MC Jiggy Fly.

The marriage was built to last, but the house was built TOO SMALL.

Death Row. Five death row inmates compete to avoid the electric chair by engaging in daring, life threatening challenges. Like Fear Factor with real consequences.
