I agree with you; the realty shows should be named the Unrealty shows!  They are so phony from what little I have seen of the commercials for them.  I'll stick with Fox News, my few recorded shows that my husband doesn't like and dancing with the starts lol

I find the whole concept of "reality tv" to be ironic. You watch "Reality tv" on a device that was designed to escape reality. What a concept.

I like certain ones that have point, like the competition ones. The others such as bad girls club and jersery shore are pure trash.

How can you watch Fox news AND complain about tv being "phony"?

"Reality"?  Really?  Any resemblence between so-called reality TV and reality is coincidental, far as I can tell.  I don't do reality TV, as i don't really care who wins the race or escapes the island or whatever.  i don't really want to watch people eat bugs until they throw up or face down watersnakes or fend off giant alligators, either.  There's a lot of sniping and backstabbing I don't care for--and more than a few of these folks seem to have room-temperature IQs anyway.  Stick me in front of a reality show and I'll start feeling my eyeballs glaze over in five minutes.  I'll take a book over reality TV any day--and my books-waiting-to-be-read list is a long one.

Good Morning to All.

I don't enjoy many of the reality shows on air now, but if Dancing With The Stars has competitors I'm a fan of, I will watch a few episodes.

The ones like Deadliest Catch, Cake Boss, and True Life can stay. The ones like Real House Wives, and Jersey Shore should be removed from television.

Yes, I usually groan or cringe when thinking about reality shows. There are far too many of them. They're cheap to make, and the networks have realized that they can fill up time with them because of it. The only ones that are are even slightly tolerable are ones that are more like contests, but even then most focus too much on backstage drama. Reality shows bore me to death.

I like reality competitions (Celebrity Apprentice, Fashion Star, etc.), but I hate reality shows about some nobody's boring life (Kardashians, Housewives, etc.).
