Yeah, there really isn't anything much that is worth watching. I don't mind the America's Got Talent type shows but the idiotic stuff where some overweight person is trying to walk on big inflatable balls on water or something else equally stupid - these shows have to go.

^  Oh no!  Honey's sister might be pregnant??!  Oh dear me.  This is horrible!  What am I going to do?
 
Well, if she's pregnant, I'm just going to have to accept it and send her a nice gift, just as I did with Snookie.  We all need to be brave and come together during this time of crisis.

I just picture most fans and the target demographic of this reality Crap, as 300 pound, mouth breathing women who never leave the house, have the blinds drawn, and are drawing social security disability payments from obesity related health problems. Their whole world and existence consists of waiting to find out which bachelorette will be picked or anxiously awaiting the results of Honey Boo Boo's 14 year old sister's pregnancy test....

Pathetic.

These people don't have that problem. My 600 Pound Life, going on 3 seasons(why?)now.
I'm surprised these people are still alive as much as they weigh!

I remember a "what if" series about what would happen if other planetary disasters happened here on earth. It broadcasted around the millenium. For example it featured what would happen if a hurricane the size of The Red Spot hit Miami. Not surprisingly it eviscerated it. It depicted scenarios with very well impressive CGI! I miss those type of series.

Cry Well that sucks. Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll replace it with ANOTHER Alaska or gold hunter show. We all know we could use a few more of those.Confused Bastids. I guess I'm completely done with the Discovery channel now. I actually remember when it was a good channel.

Does anyone actually watch the Discovery channel anymore? It just seems like Alaska, gold hunters, survival, car stuff now. Where's the Discovery part now? The only reason that I even check it on the guide is looking for Mythbusters. No Mythbusters, no watching. It's all looped repeats now. What a shame.

I could sit here, and post many of these shows that claim to be 'reality' and bash the shows in to death. But, I'm not. Rather, I'm going to say what I think is the problem with 99% of reality shows, in my opinion. To me, the major problem is the networks. Most networks today want to be on the cutting edge, and be 'hip' with the in crowd, and to them reality is where it is, and the sad fact is, it's what the alleged 'charts' say we watch the most. Second, this is not a networking decision, it's a production decision. Instead of promoting the good things, many times they only film the negativity and often exaggerated 'dramatic' moments, because drama sells. It's sad really, but unfortunately that's how it is. Sure, we have 1% of them that actually try to be real, and straight forward with you, but, when the majority come off feeling contrived as f*&%, then it kind of ruins the image the few good ones display. My solution: Cancel the majority of these shows, but, evaluate the genuine from the absolutely ridiculous, and once the ridiculous ones are gone, allow the good ones to come back, but drop the 'reality' title, and instead use the title, 'actuality' instead. Reality sounds as fake as masked potatoes being served with doughnuts, instead actuality actually sounds like, "Yeah, it actually is happening." But, until we can have these production units, and broadcast networks actually admit the truth about 99% of these programs, we will be stuck with them. Not forced, mind you. Because, even with who knows, how many channels, we can find something to watch or constructively criticize. And if we can't do that, we have the Internet, DVD's Blu-Ray's or something else to occupy our time when we are absolutely disgusted with what we see on the television.
All it takes is one bad commercial, and you're off to CIH to share your distaste for the offending advertisement.

Animal Planet has reality shows even. Yesterday I flipped through the channels and found "Tanked" - these two not-funny guys are working on fishtanks.
Even though it's a reality show, I do have a real guilty pleasure on Big Brother. Summer is no-man's land usually except for reruns and a couple of really stupid shows...Big Brother might be one of them at times but it is fun to see the Veto competitions, HOH, evictions, etc. Amazing how long that show has gone on...15 years, now in season 17 now with Julie Chen hosting every single one.

My 600-Lb Life is a no-no here. I'd rather jump off a cliff than see an hour of women eating until they die.

Even the Discovery channel is mostly reality shows now. I don't mind some of the survival shows, but there are way too many Alaska, fishing, redneck shows now. The History channel is mostly the same stuff, but add Pawn Stars and Counting Cars.

The real reason that there are so many reality shows is because they are relativity cheap to film, and there are many people who are fame hungry enough to allow producers and camera people to film what should be private business in their homes. Just give them a few dollars and they're ready to air their private dirty laundry for all of America to see.

These people don't have that problem. My 600 Pound Life, going on 3 seasons(why?)now.

I've watched a few episodes of that.  OMG.  

I once went above 200 lbs, and I was mortified.  I dunno how those people can get to 300 lbs, let alone 600, and continue eating all that they do.


I've been missing out on a good topic, that woman is a foolish slob.
I'm one of the smaller people here, only 5-7, but I've never been over 180.
I'm about as porky and out of shape as I have ever been but I have no desire to turn into one of these suicide machines, disgusting.

And how do they wipe themselves?  How do they reach all the way around back, get their hand deep between those pillow-sized butt cheeks, and wipe?

I can only imagine how bad they must stink between their cheeks and thighs, and in those big ol' rolls of blubber.  I mean, some of those peoplke have these huuuge things hanging off them that you don't know what they are.

I mean, look at those things behind her.  What is that?  Shocked
