I’ve had enough. Plenty enough of reality tv.
Survivor was good. Big Brother even held my interest for a couple of seasons. American Idol? Good tv. Heck, I’ve even watched Beauty and the Geek, Big Break 1, 2, 3, and 4. But now, reality television has put on the leather jacket and waterskiis.
The latest are the two almost identical shows: The Singing Bee and Don’t Forget the Lyrics. Horrible. And I’ll bet I’m one of only a handful of folks who sampled “National Bingo Night” earlier this summer.
Pull the plug already on reality shows. Please!
Let’s get back to our regularly scheduled programs. Sitcoms and dramas and news magazine shows. Shoot, these reality shows make me pine for a good old fashioned comedy/variety show. If given the opportunity to watch another episode of “The Singing Bee” with that geek Joey Patone, or whatever his name is, I’d choose a rerun of “The Brady Kids” or “Donnie and Marie”.
Somebody please page the creators of Sha-na-na, Sonny and Cher or The Glen Campbell Show.
And don’t forget about the sitcoms. Who wouldn’t watch something like “Gomer Pyle USMC” about right now? Or Happy Days, MASH, or The Cosby Show?
Time for the tv cycle to turn to something besides reality programming. I never thought something on tv could be more mindless than Punky Brewster.
I was wrong.
