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.

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!

The most retarded idea ever made. It wouldn't be so bad if every single reality show wasn't as scripted as watching a sitcom. The real world is not REAL. Why do you think in EVERY season the black dude always goes crazy and doesn't get along with the white people. Because he's paid to and thats what the script says. Reality tv is as real as Santa Claus. MTV specifically seems to like to air shows with stupid teenagers trying to get a date by going out with thier mom or trying to not get "next-ed" but their stupid shows have teenagers in it that are not convincing at all and have way too many coincidences for it to ever be real. People who actually like that shit are retarded 30 year olds that live in their parents basement still crying about the fact that they had no friends in highschool so they cut themselves at night and listen to emo music.
Reality TV wouldn't be so bad if it was actually real and not all writen on a script in every single fucking show ever made.

A good example of how easy people can be entertained in the world of today.

Usually consists of 20 or so people, whoms IQ would add up to 64 if combined and have absolutely no chance of making it in the real world. Instead, you watch these people make total asses of themselves for public tv.

A waste of time, and a good example of how networks just have too much money and no good ideas. It was started my Road Rules of MTV(figures)
Person 1: Are you gonna watch that new reality tv show about two monkeys scratching their balls?

Person 2: No, I'm gonna watch that new one about people inventing stupid shit.

The stuff people watch when they want to get away from their own pitiful realities.

Like soap operas, but with a cash prize at the end.
The Apprentice, Survivor, Girls vs. Boys, etc.

The mirror through which we can see the decline of our civilization.
If the Roman Empire was aroung today, reality TV would be the cause of its decline.

A really stupid idea those fuckshots from FOX decided to develop.
Guy #1: Did you see that new reality TV show on Fox last night?
Guy #2: Uhh..no, it looked too gay. Besides, jumping off a skyscraper for 200 bucks isn't reality...IT'S A FUCKING GAME SHOW!
Guy #1: Survivor doesn't have that!
Guy #2: Survivor was an excuse of a TV show. They interviewed a bunch of fucks on nation TV, turned them against each other, and then gave the winner money. GAME. SHOW.
Guy #3: Yea, and besides, they starved themselves. We're doing a hella great job of making sure our youth aren't becoming anorexic or bulemic aren't we?
Guys #1&2: Where the fuck did you come from? How did you get in?? Get the fuck outta our house!
