Is It Me, Or Are Reality Shows Going Overboard?

OK...MTV has them, Fox has them ABC and any other acronym for a frickin' channel. From Real World to the Bachelor and Married by America. To me, reality isn't when someone follows your every move with a camera 24/7 and puts it on TV...either way, you know America's watching so they aren't natural either.

Is it me, or has the US gone completely bonkers with all these reality shows? Are all of them bad? Which one's do you think are the worse? Which one do you like? Are there too many? What is everyones opinion??

Reality TV is the craze nowadays.

I personally like "The Amazing Race". Because of the race, and time contraints, I don't think these people have time to act for the camera.

I hate ALL of the bachelor or bachelorettes show.

I secretly enjoy Real World and Road Rules though.

Well I personally love the 'Real World', it is the only reason I do not block MTV on my cable box. That and Surf Girls, which I would like to nominate as the greatest TV show ever created. I love nothing more then to watch girls in very little clothing in water, it deserves an Emmy.

The rest of the shows are pointless, and play on the stupidity of Americans, which to me is a slap in the face, I don't like being manipulated.

Yeah, I agree. I asked myself the other day "when's this gonna stop" ? My dad said "Whenever people stop watching them".
so -

reality tv will never end.

yeah that stuffs pretty gay. TV stations like Comedy Central has noticed and they've made some fake commercials like "Handicapped House" and "While You Were Drunk" and they looked like they were gonna be funny as hell but then at the end of the commercial they said, "get real". But it was a good idea while it lasted and they should consider carrying it out. Anyone seen them?

I personally like The Osbournes and Real World...but that's b/c Real World has been on for years and was one of the first reality shows ever. They had it on like 10 years ago if I remember correctly...And the Osbournes...well, just b/c Ozzy's the greatest and with his family, they are a hilarious trip!

And that's about it...unfortumately JayHay was right...they will never end...until someone finally complains enough!!!

#1: You shouldn't be watching MTV unless it's for the show Undressed. MTV needs to understand that they're a music video television station...maybe one day they'll realize it and go back to showing MORE music videos and less reality crap.

#2: How many of us are actually going to get married in Alaska? Or date someone wearing a mask and then marry them? What if some idiot is pressing button #3 to make us marry some a-hole? Being single on an island hopefully to hook up with someone that's hot and let the whole U.S. see! Yep, that's in my future plan
