The one I would like to see on television would be the one that wasn't on opposite CSI.

I think it would be novel to have a reality show that actually has something to do with reality, but maybe that's just me. Smile

I would like the one called, "Firing All the Reality Show Producers."

To use a phrase of your Bill from another thread

TOTAL HORSEPUCKEY!!!!!

These shows have nothing to do with reality!

They are a manufactured facsimilie of reality created and contrived for our entertainment pleasure. Participants perform retakes for the cameras, vital pieces of information are edited out, body doubles are used, cultures are misrepresented and life experiences are transformed into the pursuit of a final monetary gain.

The moment 'reality' rears its ugly head in these shows (richard hatch sexually assaulting another contestant, contestant faints into a fire, etc.) the walls come crashing down, the platinum smiled hosts freeze and we see the man behind the commerical briefly before we cut to a commerical.

The next UK Big Brother airs on Friday. Plumbing the depths has become a key to this show. Apparently we can look forward to more glass walls, including shower and toilet and a toilet camera for the first time.
We're having a laugh!

I'd like to see a Reality show that was centered around a film crew that was filming another reality show.

Actually, Nicholas, I must disagree with you on one part. No vital information is ever edited out of these shows. There IS NO VITAL INFORMATION in these shows.

They are as "genuine" as professional wrestling.

Maybe the versions you get down under aren't edited as well as ours are. I've never seen Jeff Probst actually freeze before they cut to a commercial.

We had an idea for one in Texas.

You have twenty people in lavender Ford El Caminos start in Dallas and drive to Houston. On each one's bumper would be a sticker that said, "I'm From Up North, I Like the Dixie Chicks, And I'm Here to Take Your Guns."

The one that survived would be the winner.

I'd like to see people in government jobs (especially Congress) have to work for a living, pay for their own insurance and try to survive on a paycheck that is gutted by taxes.

Now that's a nasty reality show.

When Senator Eagleton retired, he opened up a bed and breakfast, which went bankrupt in about a year. He said, "If I had known how difficult I was making things for small businessmen, I would never have passed most of the laws I voted for."

Public Executions of proven scum of the earth murderer's and violent sex offender's.
This would be "Pay Per View" and the proceeds would go to the victims of the crime involved or the surviving family.
Other than that, I don't like "Reality" shows at all.
Most people don't remember the public execution of Gary Gilmore (1-17-77). Gilmore was executed by firing squad and was on regular tv during the daylight hours when anyone who wanted to watch (including children) could do so. The execution was aired "live" out of the state of Utah.
It seems to me that the biggest argument I hear about public executions is the trauma that it would create for the public but the fact that most people don't even remember the Gary Gilmore execution seem to me to counter this attitude.

Bill, I think that the reality show that featured a paint shop painting El Camino’s lavender would be a hoot! It would almost be like "American Chopper"!

By the way the drivers of those 20 lavender El Camino’s would not have to have even one bumper sticker. Just driving a Lavender El Camino would be enough to cause them problems! That would be considered blasphemy in Texas! Winner takes all!
