Lately I’ve been wondering if my cable TV is really worth it. I don’t get much time to watch TV anyway and the radio is usually the first thing I turn on in the morning and when I get home after work. Part of the reason I don’t watch TV as much anymore too is because there really isn’t much to see. I can remember a few years ago when I had a favorite show to watch for everyday of the week. Now…..eh, not so much.
Reality TV has taken over the airwaves and the more drama the better…and higher ratings. I must admit there are several reality shows I like to watch (Celebrity Apprentice, Hoarders, What Chilli Wants, Beyond Scared Straight, Biggest Loser, and a few others). But whatever happened to the days where we had TV shows like The Cosby Show, A Different World, Friends, and New York Undercover??? Are people just not capable of writing a good TV story line anymore? That’s what it’s beginning to seem like.
When the cameras are on, people tend to show out to get attention and ratings. True reality TV would be people who go off in general and don’t even know there’s a camera filming them. Now that would be a sight to see. But oh well, what do you do? It seems like these days if you want to watch TV, reality shows are the primary option. So what do you think about Reality TV? Do you have any favorite shows???
