Reality shows-

I figured I'd take a look at a few reality shows today... The first couple are current ones we watch, the next few are ones we will be glued to the TV for all season..... Rock Star:INXS After refusing to watch this just because INXS is involved, we finally broke down and decided to give it a chance. It turns out that it's a pretty good show. Watching the folks prepare and then performing is good. A few of them have some real talent. the only down side is on Wednesdays. The bottom three have to perform INXS songs.... Poor things haven't realized yet that getting the top prize is a fate worse than winning American Idol. You get stuck with a band full of old guys who weren't all that back when they were a 'hit'. If I was in this competition, I'd be shooting for second place! Big Brother 6 Kaysar came back in thru a revolving door. Everybody was impressed with him for being some kind of great strategist, but he's about to leave for the second time. Sure, he's a likable guy, but his game skills are seriously lacking. The last couple of days have been entertaining if you are a live feed follower. Howie and Janelle have been making life miserable for the rest of the houseguests, particularly April. I can't wait to see how much of that they'll play on TV Thursday. The Biggest Loser SEPTEMBER 13 I don't care about this show, but my wife wants to watch it. I figured i'd put it up here so she'll know when the premier is. Survivor Guatemala Sept 15 Finally, it's almost Survivor time again. Still the best of the breed in reality shows... I can't wait! Family Amazing Race Premiers Sept 27 They decided to put a little twist on The Amazing Race this time by including families of four... it should be interesting to see how the kids help or hinder the show this time.... I'm sure there are other shows out there that are good, or at least bad enough to make them worthwhile... Who knows what else we'll be glued to? BTW- I also want to bitch a little about shows that got cancelled way to early... Life on a Stick- This one was so dumb it was funny... They replaced it with Stacked, but then that seems to have disapeared too. Life as We Know It - This show was great... Right in the middle of it (when they got us all involved) it just vanished... I hate that! At least finish the story line, finish the season... Give us some kind of closure! I feel so empty not knowing what happened when they just pull the plug like that! On another note... here's something else you can do with your hands.....

I am so with you- cannot wait for Survivor!! and Kaysar is not anywhere near as intelligent as I initially gave him credit for. What the hell was he thinking????

I love amazing race and survivor, I am a huge reality tv fan. Thanks for the dates, I didn't know when they started up again. Not a fan of big brother, never could get into it.

I'm gonna start watching amazing race as I'm ditching BB6..the stupidity is driving me nuts..

I knew when Kaysar gave HOH to jenn he was doomed.

I love Rockstar, it's been a great show, I'm not a reality show person so I can take or leave the rest.

I also wanted to add that I've become a fan of some of the singer, I'm a big Jordis (girl, dreeds) fan and if she doesn't win (I hope she doesn't) I'll buy the record she's going to record.

i agree with you on Life On a Stick and Life As We Know It. both shows were interesting and sometimes hilarious. it sucked when it got pulled off the air.

i can't wait for Survivor! seriously! it never gets old... and it's weird how some contestants just never learn from previous seasons!

i love rockstar! i love MIG!
