I'll tell you what I hate, it seems like almost every damn reality show or nonfiction show has to have socalled celebrities in it!  For example, I watch a show on Biography channel that is called, I Survived.  It tells the story of ordinary, average people who have been through some kind of experience that they thought they would die from (attacked/sexually assaulted, shot, knifed, floods, bears, etc.).  Its a very good show. 
Well now, they have came out with a show just like it only it is about d-list "celebrities.  We already have seen the ghost-busting celebrity show, and there are several others out there.  Well, I don't want to watch a bunch of washed-up, can't act, drug-addicted, losers all of the time.  Who do the producers think they are kidding?  These people aren't entertaining.  But why, oh why, can't we have shows about ordinary people?  It makes it much more interesting for me to watch "real" people survive these experiences.  I know we live in a celebrity culture but I am really tired of seeing all the same old people trotted out in a zillion reality shows sadly and stupidly trying to cling to some last little bit of fame.  Irritating as all h*ll.
AND, the definition of the word, celebrity, is getting thinner and thinner.  If Kathy Griffith is "D" list then many of these celebrities are E,F & G.
A new study finds that people who are chipper & happy live longer. Which is surprising because people who aren't chipper & happy want to kill people who are always chipper & happy. David Letterman

As usual, my problem isn't whether they're "so-called celebrities" or "real" ones, or even whether I like them or not. Or even reality shows themselves. My problem is that entertainment has this obsession with taking a FICTIONAL story and plopping a real person into it. If they're alive they play themselves and if they aren't (like that "Thank you - thank you very much" guy) someone else plays them. And they don't seem to care whether it's any kind of good idea to plop them into the story, it seems to be just "what you do." I just wish that kind of thing belonged to reality shows, period, and not a hundred other things that are supposed to be FICTIONAL.
