    I've never been into reality TV as there is nothing real about it.

    Sharpton saidBoring garbage mocking entertaining garbage, if you ask me.


    Which ones of the entertaining garbage are worth more of your time than the 20 seconds of these fake ones? The Real Housewives kill brain cells.

    I rarely watch reality TV and I refuse to watch the Jersey Shores, Kardashians and Honey Boo Boos of TV.

    Been seeing this ad in the subway more often. Admittedly, I thought it was a real show at first glimpse.

    I would totally watch Clam Kings. I'm ashamed of myself. "He's stealing the clams!"

    This is actually a really good ad campaign.

    "It's sew on." That's hilarious.

    The one fault I have with these ads is the font size on the real message. Double it for god's sake.

    This is partly why I ditched my TV in 2002. Yes, I have not owned a TV in 11 years.

    What 'Reality tv' shows only tries to do is to slow down or even degrading our mental ability to be realistic.

    Those white Liberals at PBS won't dare make fun of black people, though. Hypocrites.

    This is about bad TV. Stop trying to incite something else here.

    That cracks me up when people brag about not having a tv, but somehow their netflix and hulu and itunes and play accounts are full of tv shows, as if the tv shows stopped being tv shows the moment you watch them on a different device.

    funny

    its not even just reality tv anymore
    the news has become faux-reality news that isn't based on the facts or the truth


    "Court Ruled That the Media Can Legally Lie."

    In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

    http://www.projectcensored.org/top-stories/articles/11-the-media-can-legally-lie/

    You can't even trust the news anymore. Might as well just get rid of your TV in general.

    I don't have any of those. Hulu doesn't load in my country anyway. I independently download a handful of episodes a year.

    I don't watch reality TV. I set TIVO to record documentaries and Tosh.0 and that's it.
