So come on then, whaddya really think to it all??

I don't know what's it like in some other countries but here it has gone mad!!
At the minute we've got a new series of Big Brother - a bunch of wannabies trying to stay in the big brother house for 10 weeks.
Celebrity Love Island - A group of Z list celebs on an island in Fiji.
Wife Swap - exactly what it sounds like (although this one is possibly the best out of them all, very very funny)!

Trerrible terrible trash tv, but somehow sooooo addictive!

There is enough going on in my life, why would I watch it on television?

I also think it is kind of sad that writers can't come up with any more intriguing stories anymore.

Just my 2 cents;)

I really don't watch any of these reality shows (give me sports, CSI or 24 anyday). The VERY first Big Brother (and I do mean the VERY first one, the one that was aired in the Netherlands before anyone knew the impact of reality tv) was great though. The people in that house had no idea how it would affect their lives and how many millions of people were watching them. After that, everyone joining up has known the consequences and acted differently accordingly....

Plus, I have too much to do as it is.

Just my 2p

okay, i've got my protective gear on for all the bashing i'm gong to get for this

BUT

i know its trashy, silly and over acted but I really like wife swap, especially when they swap countries (one example was german wife with a british), it was just really funny and it was great to highlight the incorrect stereotype views in peoples minds,

i also like celebrity love island, i just think its really funny

but

i hate big brother, its so boring and obvious now !! (i know the others are a bit too but still)

saying that i keep missing loads of episodes and can't keep up with whats going on, so most of the time i just stick to F1 or topgear

Reality TV has absolutely NO appeal or interest to me.

I like Sports, Cable News, Movies, the History Channel, Animal Planet, and occasionally a sit-com rerun.

Reality TV has gone out of control! Like Jeff (Travel 100), I love Animal Planet...my favorite show, "THATS MY BABY"...

We don't watch reality TV. Similar to CC - I can look out my window and see reality TV in the making. Well, maybe not quite out my window - but close! We also do not have cable or satellite. But, when we are traveling, every so often we catch Animal Planet! If I had cable, I'd be glued it AP that wouldn't be good for my TP addiction!

The so-called "Reality TV" is as far from reality as it gets! What a misnomer! I don't watch much TV since Seinfield finished.

I don't like reality TV. I watched one episode of Survivor in its first season and I got bored. I don't think I finished it!

My TV diet consists of sports, tv drama serials, movies, travel & history programmes, Animal Planet, sitcoms (whichever genre appeals to me at the moment).
