We all know that reality shows can be pretty terrible. And generally have awful ideas.

What are some of the most terrible ideas you've seen?

I remember once seeing a commercian advertising with something like this

"8 snowboarding fanatics all forced to work at the same hotel"

The Voice. Such a horrible gimmick.

"Hey, let's copy American Idol, but instead of being just like American Idol, the judges don't see the singer."

"That sounds -"

"-Genius."

"Correct. He's a bazillion dollars. Hire a bunch of washed up, irrelevant singers with it to judge."

I honestly think the voice is one of the best reality shows today. Showcases actual talent, and has actual judges who CAN sing (I'm looking at you Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.)

That being said, the worst reality show/game show I've seen is Repo Games. Getting a whole bunch of dirty people to answer random trivia to win back their 95' ford aerostar van isn't even appealing in the slightest bit. Not to mention I think every single single contestant on the show has probably ****ed their sister once or twice. Women count too.

You're an '11er. Your opinion doesn't count as relating to Steven Tyler.

OT: Desperate Housewives. If people wanna watch horny cougars get some, they can just look up porn and get a better show.

I love how Vh1 is so deeply entrenched in the spin offs of spin offs of spin offs. Their reality shows never end; especially the ones that are similar in format to The Bachelor.

09'er doesn't even know what a reality show is. And of course my joining date makes my musical opinion either worth listening to or not.

I respect that, that's a good show too but I just like that in American Pickers I get to see all the places they go, people they meet, and stuff they find. I kinda envy them. My opinion though.

Repo Games is brilliant. The problem with reality tv is that the worse an idea is, the more demeaning it is, and the less dignity the people have, the better it is. The whole reason we watch reality tv is so we can see someone lose all dignity and laugh at how pathetic or stupid they come off as.

That being said, I don't understand why there are like a million shows on making cakes, not on how to make cakes, but the drama of the cake business

Let us not forget CUPcakes, too.

That said, I think the worst hands down is anything with "16" in the title. "My Super Sweet 16"... "16 and Pregnant".. I mean, how about some other real life problems? "47 and Divorced"? "29 and Still Living With Mom"?

I'm just sayin.

I see you whinin' 'round town 'bout the show I love, and I'm like, "fuck you!"

The Biggest Loser. I think it's a good idea, and a good initiative, but the way it's done is just sick. The guy who loses the least weight is the guy who needs the most help. He's also the one they send home. They also put all the physical and emotional struggles, fights, challenges and pains all these people go through to improve their lives on national television, all for a price at which, for one season's cost, they could give every contestant that season a year with a personal trainer at home.

I like the idea - Instead of giving people money, they make them healthier. What I don't like is the execution.

To be quite honest, I don't like the kind of show like X Factor, American Idol etcetera.
The idea behind it - showcasing a country's hidden talents - is brilliant. The execution (mostly annoying judges and singers of the "so bad it's good" variety) is piss-poor.

Idol is probably the worst in terms of it's longevity and detrimental effects. They're all equally terrible to watch though.

Jersey Shore... worst show ever. I don't even know if it's reality anymore or scripted because I can't see guys acting that gay and chicks really being that stupid.

Most reality tv shows, I just don't like American Idol or shows like that because they usually cast people that sound the same all the time.

Well, someone beat me to talking about the multitude of cake shows, and another poster beat me to making the point that there is an entire sub-genre of cupcake shows. Within said sub-genre (not that I guess I've really watched a whole episode of any of them) Cupcake Wars seems like the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of.

If it was a bunch of people throwing cupcakes at one another, I might almost be entertained (as long as they added tigers or an obstacle course or something) but the term "war" is a misnomer. It's just a bunch of bakers fretting over a pile of damn cupcakes.


I do like some of the shows that show actual artistic people honing their craft. I'm not usually one for fashion or dance, but some of the dancing shows and Project Runway, actually share the process and products of real artistry with the audience, and that's pretty cool. Still, the gimmicks and emphasis on interpersonal drama in each episode is pretty damn lame.

X-effect, hands down.

Gene Simmons: Family Jewels. No thanks. I'm not interested in him. Not at all.

Jersey Shore. Teenage angst? I'll pass.

Project Runway:

'So, guys, I have this idea. We get these fashion people to come compete'.

'But who'll watch this?'

'People will after we hire Heidi Klum.'
#32
The Repo Games. It's a repo show, but they let the people answer trivia questions to win their stuff back. It is possibly the show made in the worst taste that I have ever seen.
#33
Southern Chopper was a horrid show and I loathe the ones on BBC3 like "Young Fishmonger of the Year" or "Young Hairdresser of the Year". Seriously, who came up with that idea? Sure, if they're naturally talented, give them some recognition, but not on my bleedin' tele!

Jersey Shore. I don't even fucking care that it's not a reality show. Just Jersey Shore.
