As it turns out, the "balloon kid incident" from last week was a hoax! The sick parents were trying to market themselves for a future reality TV show!

I am not a fan of most reality TV shows especially these ones about "atypical" families. You know these shows about familes with a "freakish number of kids" or families that are "extra special." The networks love thse shows because they are dirt cheap to make. Even though the shows don't offer big name stars they usually end up turning these families into pseudo celebrities anyways.

I just think it's sad that there are plenty of talented, college educated actors and actresses out there that are stuck doing community threatre when you have these phony parents subjecting their kids to the airwaves. It's not good for the kids and its not even that entertaing or thought provoking to watch!

So do you like these shows? Or do you think they are the latest get rich fast gimmick out there?

Note: Just so you know, I don't coinsider "American Idol" a reality TV show I coinsder it a singing contest.

All celebrity culture has a bad influence on society in my view, reality television just sped up the process.

i really dont like that many reality shows because there all about people crying 78 percent of the time saying that "they cant take it anymore", why does anyone care about a family with 8 kids? half the time your watching things that you do everyday, the other half you feel stressed out

All reality shows suck.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

I think Reality shows is the worst thing the TV ever produced among Talk shows, gossip shows and in someway soap operas. But RTV tops them all.

It glorifies idiots. That's it. The only good "reality" show I ever saw was Last Comic Standing because the contestants were actually witty/fun to watch live and be people. I remember seeing an episode of the White Rapper Show and just being jaw-drop speechless at the sheer awfulness. It's the absolute laziest type of entertainment on TV--basically TV shows without writing starring people that aren't famous/don't cost money. That's like if Nintendo started releasing uninspired minigame collections that took little thought/development money instead of well thought out, kick-ass intellectual property......wait......

At least it's not Lifetime.

I hate reality tv. My ex girlfriend was a reality tv addict. Man that was a long two years lol. I like shows with a story. I have enough things going on in my life I do not want to watch reality stuff that has some real mixed in with some fake. I want something with a STORY I say !

Remember when Jade Goody offended India? That's what happens when you elevate stupid people to the higher echelons, you get diplomatic incidents.

I think the only reality TV show I ever liked was The Amazing Race. Pretty much all of the others are crap.

I still argue that "Cops" is perhaps the only genuine reality TV show.
