It seems as if the newest fad in the business of television are "reality" series. People in appartments, houses or islands being constantly watched by cameras, much to the pleasure of the viewer at home. You can call 'em name, curse at 'em, say all sorts of stuff, but they can't hear you. (Wait a second! My dad does the same during a football game!) Countless reality shows have been spawned off since "The Real World" came out a little more than a decade ago.

So, for the reality TV buff, a channel with nothing but reality series. From "Temptation Island" to "The Osbournes" to "Big Brother", it's all here. Problem is, you can't call in or anything to vote someone off, because it's syndication.

[19 Oct 02] - Some think this was the first reality TV show (circa 1973). I'm sure that others disagree. [bristolz, Oct 20 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       Reality TV is an oxymoron in my dictionary. These shows don't need a network of their own to fizzle out and die...

       I suppose this would make it easier to ignore reality TV so I like it.
