I Hate Reality Tv

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 615 People

    I enjoyed the first series of big brother.

    Felt kinda weird watching CCTV all the time. Then,after the first two series,the flood gates seemed to open! There are now so many hours of airline/bigbro/look how huge my head is kind of stuff. It's cheap tv. And anyone over forty remembers Oppertunity Knocks, New Faces,Search...

    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...

    It's either overly dramatized reactions to

    staged situations, or it's scripted crap trying to be passed off as reality. All in all, watching people scream and bit%# at each other, every night for hours on end, is not my idea of entertainment.

    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...

    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?

    I hate reality tv, but sometimes

    when I'm bored I can't help watching a show where people curse at each other for no reason. Only when I'm bored though

    Always So Incredibly Dull!

    I fail to see how people can remain interested in the same tired reality TV shows every year. Out of the people I know, I appear to be in the minority of people that can't stand any of that stuff. It's generally exploiting people, I'm glad Big Brother is finally over. But...

    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 ...

    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...

    No Reality

    There is nothing real about reality TV. When you shoot 50 hours of film for a 50 minute program; what you see depends on how the footage is cut & the music/sound effects that accompany it. It will tell the story you want to tell. Not having anything to do with reality.
