I guess doing the rabid, obnoxious liberal thing didn't help her enough.

Gee, another crappy reality dating show that probably would have ended in a breakup like they all do failed. I'm SHOCKED!

I have never watched one of those shows, and I never will.  How bad does your life have to suck to find any interest in this stuff?  I'm waiting for the death of the reality show genre - PLEASE!  They've almost run out of ideas.

Poor Eva - everything in the Obama aura fails.  He is the kiss of death.

Well, reality shows are one of my pet peeves.  Some of them grab you - I loved American Idol when it first came on. 

I have to confess that I love the forensic shows.  They fascinate me, though my husband thinks that is creepy.  I really have no right to talk.

You mean the CSI programs?  I love those?  There is another called Body of Evidence on after Dancing with the Stars which is very good....   Gory stuff doesn't phase me.... it used to creep my husband out that I could watch stuff on the medical shows during dinner and not lose my appetite....... however, anything with babies bothers me...

I love Body of Evidence!  Like you, the gore doesn't bother me a bit.  What I cannot watch are shows with animals - sick, in distress, being prey.  When i was a child - it got so that my parents would not allow me to watch Lassie anymore because I would cry so much when Lassie was in danger (no matter that Lassie always came out OK).  Even now, if I hear the theme song to Lassie, I tear up.

OMG ......... same here......  I can't watch any movie with dogs unless I know they don't die ahead of time.

Me too.  On the other hand, I get a good chuckle out of this Eva Longoria story.

Indeed, in fact I'd say that they HAVE run out of ideas. They've done moonshiners, gator hunters, pawn shop owners, antique pickers, antique restorers, car restorers, ghost hunters, gun salesmen, motorcycle builders, gold miners, loggers, fishermen, truckers, dumpster-diving couponers, families with ungodly numbers of kids, families with ungodly numbers of wives,  Alaskans, hillbillies, rednecks, doomsday preppers, criminals, the Amish, pretty faces with no known occupations, and the totally uncategorizable Honey Boo Boo. Now they've gotten to the point where they're putting them together.

Amish Mafia... Deep South Paranormal... Swamp Pawn... I kid thee not, these are actual names of shows on the air these days!

I have to confess, I am a total addict of the TRUE murder mystery shows.   Mystery detective on HLN,  Snapped on Oxygen, the Dateline and 20/20 and the ones on BIO. 

By the way, there is a cute reality show on TV Land now called Forever Young.  Not trashy or exploitive like the usual fare.

LOL!

I too wonder how they are going to fill up the air time of all these channels when reality shows finally run their course.   I shudder to think, actually.

My late mother went through a stage where she bought and read the newspaper rags you see at the grocery check outs....Crime Detective, etc..  We teased her relentlessly.

Today, I'm addicted to Investigation Discovery Channel and Who the Bleep Did I Marry....and my son teases me about it.


It's a rite of passage....albeit to what I don't know.   LOL!

Old age, probably.  :beer:

Check out the Snapped show on Oxygen channel.   A new episode comes on tonight at 9, although the reruns go all day on Sundays.   :eatdrink:

That's a very comprehensive list there, but you left out the Bigfoot Hunters.

I've caught parts of that one before and it is good, I agree.
