Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock....TIMES UP

Okay, I don't have a whole lot of time to watch T.V. I have a few favorites that I record on the good ol' DVR. However, when I can't sleep I put the T.V. on for background noise as I read a book or do "work" (that's what I tell my husband) on the computer. So, this commercial about a new reality show has been circulating a lot, I'm sure you've heard of it...I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. Well, first of all (sorry to offend anyone's delicate reality T.V. senses) but I'm a purist and pretty much think that reality T.V. has forever damaged any and all quality programming on T.V. Second, when did the likes of Sanjay and the two headed monster known as Heidi/Spencer become celebrities? I mean I'll admit many of these shows are like as the old saying goes...train wrecks. You know it's bad, but you can't stop yourself from looking. However, I get really annoyed when all these would be's and has beens get together for these "celebrity" shows.'s called 15 minutes of fame!!! Not 15 minutes of fame plus another 5 maybe 10. So, let's make this worth my time to watch. Instead of releasing the bees on Sanjay, how about releasing a bengal tiger on his butt and watch him sing his way out of that one!?!

Oh so true. I can't stand much reality TV and that show has too go now before it starts.

Hi, visiting from SITS! :)

Ahh Speidi... Death to the paps who keep extending the 15 minutes of these two vapid eejits.

I tuned in last night and thought, "Seriously why on earth would I want to watch theses people." Besides my summer is devoted to So You Think You Can Dance! You know I have to watch some reality TV - they are the only shows that don't have drugs, sex, and murder. I am sure it is coming.

I was disgusted with myself because I succumbed and watched the Speidi wedding. I had avoided it thus far but it sucked me in. Boooooooo.

I am so there with you on the reality tv stuff. I do watch American Idol (just the top 8 or so) because I love music. I have also watched a few episodes of The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but for the most part it all makes me sick!
