Reality tv will not peek till Shartfoo Master Tango makes his debut on the small screen.

I could not agree with you more. I don't know how people can even watch many of these shows.

Other than Top Shot, yea it is over dramatized, me and masterPsmith do not watch reality shows. Most of them look really stupid anyhow.

I certainly hope that they are soon to be gone forever.

The Biggest Loser is ok, they actually help people that don't win the big prize. That show with the Whale chasing Greenpeace guy was can't miss TV. I thought for sure he was going to get someone jailed for life or sink a ship in freezing waters.

I truly think it will be ramped up until it is a life and death thing. Remember the movie Running Man? Something like that will happen before we are all said and done.

They haven't done a real:

Survivor, where a group of wannabees are stranded on a tropical island and have to fend for themselves for a month, then the audience votes for the one winner from those who survive!

Running Man, where a convicted murderer is chased down and killed by trained assassins.

Kung Fu, where martial artists have to endure a gauntlet of Ninja in order to survive, with the audience choosing a winner.

Sink or Swim, where contestants are stranded aboard a sinking boat 12 miles off shore and have to decide whether to sink or swim!!

Please don't stop the reality shows until Tango has a chance to show American Idol what he can do.

"Ultimate Fighter" doesn't even do it for me anymore.

None of these people are important, even celebrity status, which was cheap to begin with, has further cheapened.

I'm interested in one reality show, and I WILL see it produced...

I can honestly say I have never gotten involved with any of them. "reality" tv is just not reality.

I'd much prefer to watch Deadliest Catch or Dirty Jobs before any competition based reality show. That or pick my nose while taking a shat and reading Calvin and Hobbes
