Weekly Homework Assignmet


It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the following quote: Time for your tangent…what is your latest complaint?

Well, I don't like to complain (insert sarcastic joke here), but I REALLY am getting annoyed with reality shows ... wait, I've complained about this before?!?!? Oh yeah, right, I did. But man, has it gotten worse. I thought for sure at some point reality tv shows would eventually disappear (kind of like the evidence against Kobe Bryant during that rape case a few years ago ....) Sadly, it continues to gain steam.

An example is Jersey Shore (or whatever it's called). Really? A reality show about knuckleheads from a beach town in Jersey? And people are embracing this? Really? Wait, there's a guy with the nickname "The Situation," and people actually like him? Really? And now, these ass-hats are now infiltrating tv shows I watch (like when the Situation was a guest on Sports Nation)?

This, along with those "Real Housewives" shows that are spreading throughout towns quicker than those CSI shows ... man, I think we've reached a point of no return with bad tv. I shudder to even think what reality shows are on the docket in the future. I came up with some ideas I thought were outlandish a while ago (like a reality show about a bait and tackle shop), but at this point, I'm not so sure anymore. It makes me sick to my stomach.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go watch some professional wrasslin'.

Jersey Shore is by far one of the funniest shows on tv and so is the Housewives. I will try and keep the volume down.

I'm guessing you're not a fan of Frank the Entertainer, A Basement Affair and Secrets of Aspen? Both, some fine programming.

Ha Ha Ha! Professional Wrestling! That is SO real!

These shows are pretty crazy, aren't they? There is a guy called The Situation? What a great nickname! That could only be from someone in New Joisey! : )

I kind of enjoy reality shows. Including Jersey Shore. Not so much because I take it as reality, but because their idea of reality is so darn hilarious.

Stopping by from Mama Kat's Writers Workshop!

I do like some reality shows like survivor but Jersey Shores, come on. I've never watched it but the previews were enough to make me turn and run. Sorry these assclowns have showed up on your sports shows.

Jersey Shore is pretty entertaining Schue, but I haven't seen any of the Housewives shows.

Face it Los - These kinds of shows aren't going away any time soon!
Might as well laugh along side your wife at those crazy people - it's fun!

I. AGREE. WITH. YOU!!! I am so sick and tired of all these reality shows. I love my Desperate hHousewives and Ghost Whisperer. My husband on the other hand is a Sports junky. I guess he likes reality shows to a point..lol!

Jenny said...

Amen to that, I am sick of reality shows...

Four Dinners said...

The Situation?

Wonder if he can pronounce his nickname pissed?

"I'sh The Shit...shit...shit...oh fuck it!"

Get him pissed on live TV!!!!!

Rhonda said...

I have to tell you, no one pulls off that "ass-hat" comment quite like you do. I giggle every time!! lol

Superstar said...

It's the OC replacement?? TV continues to disappoint me. Have you seen Dexter???
That is a show that continues to thrill and entertain!

Jeff said...

Jersey residents will watch anything remotely related to New Jersey. "Springsteen Plucking His Nose Hairs" would get higher ratings in Jersey than the Super Bowl.

Not that Philadelphians are any different. Does anyone outside Philly care if M. Night Shyamalan is even alive?

you need to get on board buddy, you are missing out, listen to that wife of yours for once
