I saw previews of this last year, but never caught it. I just wasted a half hour of my life that I'll never get back. Yes, The Osbournes and Hogan knows best are obviously staged in some aspects. But this show takes the cake. Contrived from beginning to end, over the top characters, bad acting, etc. I was just reading some forums where they were saying how clever and funny everyone is. Heh- they all have good delivery, I'll give em that. But clever? Not when you are fed your lines, which they obviously are.

Seriously, is this what ‘Reality’ shows have become? Written and staged? Why LIE and bother calling it a reality show?

The only good reality show that A&E has made was Airline.

Jesus, what has the channel become?

Mostly every cable show has turned into… dare I say, shit?

After all, we must appease the 18-25 demographics.

Now if you would excuse me, I have to watch VHI's Best Week Ever!

I met Gene Simmons and he's an asshole. So frankly I'm not surprised.

Reality TV has never been good, and it never will be.

But somewhere out there, there are people who actually enjoy this crap. If I ever meet one of these people, I will break their fingers.
Please, please, you give me too little credit.
