Reality TV

JWoww,Snooki, DJ Pauley D, The Situation, Sammi Sweetheart and the rest of the Jersey Shore crew are out of a job as MTV has announced the upcoming sixth season will be the last. The sad thing about this? I was able to name all of those people without having watched a single episode of the… read more


The cast has been announced for the spring 2011 season of Dancing With the Stars.  And, again … how many times can you scrape the bottom of the barrel? While a couple of people this year were once big names, they have definitely lost their shine.  It’s kind of sad when the biggest current name… read more

NaOnka and Kelly S. (AKA Purple Kelly) both quit Survivor: Nicaragua tonight.  Could someone please explain to me the thinking of people like this? While I have given up my constant reality TV recaps of years ago, every once in a while something happens that just makes me comment, and this is one of those… read more

Okay, the definition of “star” is getting stretched a bit thin on Dancing With the Stars this season … The eleventh season of Dancing With the Stars kicks off on Sept. 20th and this latest round of “stars” leaves a lot to be desired.  The Spring 2010 season at least had a few more people… read more

Hundreds of episodes, 20 seasons and 301 contestants later, Survivor is still going strong, and can easily be blamed for the explosion of reality TV programming in… read more

Survivor Gabon Thoughts

I haven’t done anything relating to Survivor in ages, mainly because I decided to take the blog in other directions, but this last season, Survivor Gabon, had some real stand outs in the, “How do you function in the real world?” category. There is no denying that each cycle of this show, this was the… read more

I’m not sure who I first heard make the analogy that reality TV was the modern day equivalent of the Roman colosseum, but truer words have never been said.  As I’ve mentioned before, I watch Big Brother (BB).  I’ve been a fan since season 1, but I have seen it sliding deeper and deeper into… read more


It happened the other night, I was watching Big Brother After Dark on Showtime 2, and I realized I have officially become old. As regular readers know, I have been a faithful viewer of Big Brother since season 1 (though I skipped season 2 as I hated the format change), and each season I complain… read more

Amazing Race 12

No, don’t worry, this isn’t a return to weekly recaps of reality shows.  That is long dead. When CBS canceled Viva Laughlin, there was a benefit to those of us who love The Amazing Race… we didn’t have to wait until January for the new season!  Instead, it starts tonight at 8 EST/7 CST. This… read more


Well, after all the back and forth with Martha Stewart you would have thought the premiere of the new season of The Apprentice would be sky-high. Nope. Only 9 million viewers. To give you an idea of how that measures up is the closing ceremonies of the Torrino Winter Olympics drew 12 million and the… read more

Martha informed the listnerers that the Donald’s open letter had been sent to the press before it went to her. She is now referring to him as “juvenile,… read more
