Overhyped, overrated television shows which are in no way, shape, or form, real.
Survivor was the catalyst which has spawned all the crap reality TV show that you now see on nearly every channel on cable and satellite.

It's what MTV has dedicated its airtime to, instead of music.
MTV has so much Reality TV shows. They may as well rename "MTV" to "RTV".

The downfall of Civilization as we know it.
Aliens will never visit earth because they will see our reality tv shows and think we're all dumbasses who need to be killed.

T.V shows that show real people doing what real people really would never do!
People being "stranded" on an island with fifteen other people and have to do challenges so you don't get "voted off"!

A very good example of how easy it is to keep people in today's world entertained. It's always about a group of 20 or so, very retarded people competing in stupid shit and rambling some of the stupidest things ever said. C'mon people, how can watching a bunch of people living inside a house while having their every move recorded be good TV?
GET A LIFE!!!

The shittiest thing to happen to the U.S. since George W. Bush.

Was started with Road Rules in MTV(figures)

Person 1: Are you going to watch that new reality tv show about 2 monkeys scratching their balls for an hour?

Person 2: No, I'm going to watch the one about people inventing really stupid shit.

not reality at all- seriously, who the fuck gets stuck on an island & wins money for it? you'll never see two rich bitches working on a farm, real top models do not endure contests/ challenges, a popular ultra-chic chick will never be caught dead with a nerd, and none of these 'american idols' ever become legends.

see shit
The surreal life, kept, strip search, fear factor, survivor, blow out, the bachelor, the bachelorette, beauty & the geek, the simple life, gastineau girls , americas next top model, american idol, pretty much every single fucking show- if you watch more than 3 of these on a regualr basis, you dont even have your own reality.

Like all forms of TV (except legitimate sports), reality TV is scripted. Oh, the dialogue may be improvised but the situations are scripted... CBS knows who's gonna win "Survivor" before they even film it!

The first season of "The Real World" (back in 1992) may not have been scripted... but every single so-called reality TV show since then was! You think Viacom or News Corp or Disney or General Electric is gonna finance a show if it ain't a sure thing?
I think we should combine a few reality TV shows. Let's broadcast the true story of 16 sorority girls (ages 18 to 23) picked to live on a tropical island who are competing for the affections of a wealthy, handsome bachelor...

IN A DEATH MATCH THUNDERDOME TOURNAMENT!
