    The popularity of reality tv, as it's called, is dismaying to liberal media elitists. But they're still sick to death that fox cashed in first, behind mtv, of course. The number one ingredient in 99% of all reality tv shows is competition. We all know liberals really don't understand competition; at least in the context of market forces, they're woefully ignorant. This competition, in turn, is what drives people to display the full gamut of human interaction in an effort to manipulate , compete with, and ally with each other.. These are real people, acting for the most part, how real people act. I must say however that most of the contestants are young, beautiful, vain, selfcentered, and volatile. Well adjusted people are just not as fun to watch. Who remembers Norman from season one of MTV's real world?

    The libs will say: why this is no better than the base human urge to watch a train wreck and is therefore immoral. To them I say, "no, it's a fairly real unfoldment of real human emotion and drama". And then I ask"You look at train wrecks, don't you." Then they usually lie and say they don't.

    Also, these shows are putting writers who usually write the shit dialogue, right out of business. Oh yeah, and those are liberal writers.

    Which do you like best: train wrecks with chemical explosions, or simple derailments? :D

    I have no problems at all. I love "reality tv", libs hate anything that is economically successful, which they think shouldn't be. They think they and their liberal ideas are the shit. anything else, they think, should be outlawed, or at least disdained.

    I'm not fussy about reality tv, or anything on tv for that matter. However, I do have a weakness for the Supranoe's (spelling??). In the end, it's a person's choice to go on these shows. If I watch porn, am I supposed to care about the man/woman's personal history or.....well you know:D

    I am fussy about it. I like to explain to people who hate why I like it. And then watch them flail around to explain why they hate it. Of course they don't say they think they're supposed to hate it because it's lowbrow. Such sheep.

    And I love the soprano's too!

    Lowbrow, degrading to women, show American's in a bad light blah, blah blah. That is assuming all people viewing are idiots. Look at the ratings, some of those people are not telling the truth anyway. As for myself, I don't have the attention span for much these days, but I do tune in at the end to see the final few contestants.
