You lost me. These so-called reality shows are (for me) utterly unwatchable.
The original reality show has to be COPS, and I think it is the only one that deserves to be called "reality" because it is all real. And I still love watching it. The rest of the shows, weather its people stuck on an island, picking a bachelor, or rummaging through a storage locker should have a disclaimer on them "for entertainment only, what you see here may not be real".
What disturbs me most is how these have taken over all the networks like some virus. Even the History channel is dominated by shows like Ice Road truckers, Ax men, Boys of Summer, Swamp People, etc. What do they have to do with history?
