She is so over taken by that next group of nothings, the Khardas.. Kardass... the tramps.

who?

Everything just has to be a reality show. Who in their right mind wants to watch that crap

I never watched. I will never watch it. I hate reality shows.

NC,

I don't believe that they are reality,. They pick weird people and insist that they act stupid or they won't pay them since normal people aren't interesting to the mental midgets who watch these progeams.

Can you imagine a producer asking someone to deal with an issue in a mature manner?

This would be a reality show of my life:
Get up in the morning, alarm clock screaming, run around house making sure kids are fed and dressed, while simultaneously trying to make hair/make-up presentable for work.
Take kids to school.
Go to work, sit in office drinking diet coke, surreptitiously read Dave's blog, yak with clients, and churn out reports.
Go pick up kids.
Go home and make dinner.
Maybe do some laundry. Probably clean some hideous messes.
Hopefully converse intelligently with husband for a few minutes.
Assist in homework. Badger kids to bathe, brush teeth, go to bed.
Go to bed, nearly dead.
Repeat, repeat, repeat.

I would not trade this "reality" for the "reality" of Paris or Kim or any of those "real housewives" for a million bucks.

Beckster,

Only if you did this naked.

there, i fixed it.

It lasted THAT long?

Exactly, Mikey! The truth is, if they don't act out enough they don't get on television, period. Did you ever watch those shows where the screaming kids throw tantrums until their parents spend hundreds of thousands for their Sweet Sixteens, or the Super Nanny shows with monster kids, or those evil JonBenet-like 4 year olds in beauty pageants, or Bridezillas?

Me either, but the promos tell the story. Idiocy and bad behavior sells. I had an article yesterday about a woman convincted of child abuse for pouring hot sauce down her adopted child's mouth as a punishment. The 'reality show' part is this: she filmed herself doing it to get on Dr. Phil!

I mean, WTFBBQ? is wrong with these people?

Jeff,

Like Rome before it fell, bread and circuses.

As long as people support the sponsors of this slush, they will stay on the air. Simple as that.

If we make people like the Khardas... whatever, famous for being famous, we have only ourselves to blame.

Mud, thanks for fixin' it.

Becker expect a call from the TV folks.

You can call your program, I am Becker than you..

hey, let's make up names/titles for our fictitious 'reality shows'.

mine would be called............Please change the channel.

There is nothing real about "Reality TV." Trainwrecks, all.

My husband would LOVE that whole "reality naked" thing!! WTG, guys!

So what does Paris Hilton do on realty TV? Sell hotel properties? No wonder Dave's blog fans don't watch.

Mine would be called, "OMG! You caught me picking my nose!" IT WAS A NOSE SCRATCH!

How about "Dumbasses I Have Known". My luck it would turn into "Dumbasses I Have Been".

Mine would be called, "Is She Dead?" The kids are grown so no getting anyone ready for school. I'm getting ready to have my last back surgery so I don't run around much right now. If anyone ever put a detective on me they'd probably put flowers at the front door out of sympathy. I like to watch a couple of programs on the same network that shows "Bridezillas". I've actually changed the channel in the middle of a program because I can't stand the commercials for that train wreck of a show. Now that everyone has let everything hang out I think it's time they started thinking about putting it back in for a while. I blame Jerry Springer for starting all this.

Mine would be "Tazing Students" Where I ask simple questions like. "Why are you late for class and why do you have a Starbucks in your hand?" and they have a nanosecond to give me their latte OR describe the universe.

What do ya think?

Watching "Cops" catch dumb criminals is always fun. And I think watching Mikey catching dumb students would also be fun. What are you going to wear for the show, Mikey?

P.S. Best of luck and least of pain, cindy, on your upcoming surgery!

eil,

I will be naked.

Thanks eil. Mikey you do realize the blog guys are going to want to see pictures don't you?

I call 'videographer' for Mikey.

Always glad to help out.

Appreciate the offers.
