Tidal Wave of Reality Televison on its Way
If you or your clients are part of the group that loves reality programming then ABC is the network for you. ABC will be filling Wednesday and Thursday nights with the drivel launching 6 new shows.
Among ABC's upcoming reality slate, there's "Are You Hot: The Search for America's Sexiest People" (premiering Feb. 13), a six-episode show "where intelligence and achievement have absolutely no bearing," Lyne says. Feb. 19 marks the 15-night consecutive run of "I'm a Celebrity -- Get Me Out of Here!" A new season of "The Bachelor" begins March 26, with a star ABC described in a statement as "the son of one of America's most affluent and prominent families." And "Extreme Makeover" returns with more televised plastic surgery for six episodes starting April 3.
Thank God I have cable.
