I hope they DO make it, so this "reality TV" phase finally gets the long, lingering, excruciating death it SO deserves. Reality TV as a whole is already suffering lower ratings this year, I hope this crappy show makes 'em continue to fall.
I dunno... I think a lot of the show are suffering low ratings because there are just so many of them. You know how it is- one thing works, so they make a million copies.
The most successful shows on TV still include reality. It's just that for reality to continue to succeed, they need to constantly do new things. The novelty is the key to its success.
If reality "dies," it won't be because people don't like the genre, because they do, but because they'll run out of ideas.
Frankly, I'm not surprised reality is popular. We've all seen every comedy sitcom show and crime/cop drama a zillion times. We know every plot, every charater archetype over and over. BORING. Conventional TV should die as quick as reality. Frankly, I'm more surprised that Everybody Loves Raymond and CSI are still popular than reality.
