Reality TV is Our Own Damn Fault
Many of us, myself included, have blamed television executives for this onslaught of reality television programming. While those executives do greenlight the shows they only do so because research points to the fact that the shows will be hits. We keep watching and they will keep producing. It's a vicious circle.
So, it is our own damn fault for watching this crap that keeps it on the air. One good thing is that we get real tired real fast when it comes to anything trendy and this whole reality thing is definitely just a trend. Remember 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire" and all the crap that followed? It's all gone now and that was only three years ago. So, for those of you that hate reality TV, there is hope. You just have to wait a couple years. That is until lemming-like TV executives latch onto the next ridiculous trend.
