    Unreality

    Why would I want to watch someone else's life when I can go out and live my own life to its fullest. The shows are all fake with poor acting and hyped up problems to the achevement of some form of drama for the show. I haven't seen any reality television that is actually real...

    Reality What A Joke

    First, I would like to say that reality television is far from reality. However, I still do not have any desire to watch anything pertaining to somebody's so called real life. I watch television to escape, I want to get lost in the lives of make belief, I want to see Buffy slay...

    The Formula Never Changes

    The few forumlas for reality shows seems to never stray from one show to the next.  If the creators had an original idea, it would die from boredom.  This summer is mind-numbing.  They select irritating personalities to co-exist, and then encourage them to...

    To be clear I only liked American Idol

    when Paula and Simon were judges on it and they cracked me up. I do like the X-Factor and Britain's Got Talent but I do find the rest of the reality show selections to be pretty bland. I don't like Hells Kitchen because I think Gordon Ramsay tends to be a bit of a *beep*, it...

    Honestly, if I find a product, a television show, a website or even a toothbrush that I like, it's gone within 6 months.   Maybe I'm a picky individual....or maybe I just know what I like and what works for me.  If I find a pair of jeans...

    They're totally fake. They follow scripts. The people are basically actors playing characters.

    Mindless But Profitable Dribble

    Why Do They Even Start It?

    Can the people acting not at least take real acting lessons? Because the suck more then the average acting amateur.. Why? Most of them arent even attractive.. Why do they have so many pointless shows that no one cares about?

    Fake *** reality Pawn Shop shows.

    ..... I've been in pawn shops many times. People don't walk in trying to sell a copy of the Declaration of Independence that has been in the family for years....They're usually just meth heads trying to sell their dead grandpa's gold tooth..........

    Reality Tv Is Boring

    I've not been a fan of today's Reality TV. It demonstrates the "easy" way out for producers.  It tells me that there are few good writers today and thus networks and producers are relying on these reality shows to fill the broadcast hours.   JoeD ...

    I don't mind the idea of it.

    Why Are There So Many Home Improvement Shows?

    Can't Stand It

    I'm sick to death of reality TV - Big Brother, Shipwrecked, The X-Factor, Britain's Got Talent etc. They're pretty much all the same and the most annoying thing about them is there is usually an episode of at least one of them almost every night! I'm sincerely hoping that...
