The Reality on TV

America's got talent, and obviously a lot of time on their hands. So much so, that we must be entertained by someone else's reality? If one more reality program is aired I am going to scream!!! Unless... I'm going to get paid. How's this for a show idea? A camera crew comes into my home and records me watching 'reality tv'. Then they follow me to my weekly therapy sessions where I confess my love for Scott Baio, the heart throb of "Charles in Charge". The reality is, we enjoy seeing other people get dumped, eat worms, get caught cheating or be the weakest link. Are we that desperate to see someone else fail or are we just trying to brace ourselves for our own failures or are we just that pathetic? I know, I know reality TV is good TV. It'll make you laugh, make you cry and make you talk to your best friend between commercials.
