    15 Reality Shows That Are Destroying America

    WTF? Bridalplasty? Animal Hoarders? Toddlers in Tiaras? I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant?

    I didn't know a lot of these shows even existed. And I thank God for this.

    / Minor fail points though... they forgot about Celebrity Sex Rehab. With Dr. Drew, of course.

    .
    Monkhouse: I want to die like my Dad did, peacefully, in his sleep... not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    SystemShock: I kicked Lance in the nuts. Err, nut.

    Platypius:
    I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    AM999: Romney 320 Electoral votes, Obama 218. Colorado profs' [prediction] model, 100% accurate since 1980.

    Seamus: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day,it blew my teenage mind

    At some point we will see 16 year old girls getting pregnant on purpose just to get famous. Unless it has already happened.

    Also wasn't there something about "false idols" in the Nostradamus poems? 2012! OMG!

    If people didn't watch they wouldn't make them. Plus they are a lot cheaper to make than a traditional sitcom.

    Yea...and they missed a bevy of reality shows that The Soup lives off of?

    Where is the I love money ( a show so ruining america one of its contestants killed a check while he was on Megan's reality show )...that one was cancelled only to be brought back with different contestants (who did not go on to kill themselves).

    Then you have the Bad Girls Club...pure train wreck.

    You're cut off--staged train wrecks and of course how can you leave off Tool Academy? (since they were doing shows that are no longer airing anyway)?

    Certainly the Kardashians are destroying what people think an ass should look like? And it must be confusing to have a wookie speak english and not...err...wookinese.

    My wife and I always thought the bachelor, bachlorette shows were weird. A bunch of strangers trying to convice one weirdo that they are their match made in heaven.

    Undercover Boss can be OK. It is cool to see the head honcho relate to and do the tasks of the grunts.

    I like undercover boss. I would like my boss to live a day in my shoes trying to do what he's asking me to do on a daily basis.

    I also like Undercover Boss. Some of the shows don't really interest me, but over all I do like it. I'd love to see some of people making decisions in any of the companies I work for actually do the job they want us to do. (Not my manager for most of the companies as they actually are out in the field working right along side of us.)

    Will Paulie and Paul Senior ever make amends? I HAVE TO KNOW!






    These sorts of TV shows are just a symptom of the disease, not the root cause. I also don't understand why if people like watching others build motorcycles, trucks etc, they don't just go out into the garage and fawkin build one instead of watching TV.
