Reality TV Overdose….

Remember when the big wave of reality shows first hit in 2000. Reality TV had made a huge comeback that summer with Big Brother and Survivor? Shortly after,  Idol, The Amazing Race, The Apprentice, Fear Factor, America’s Next Top Model and Big Brother had all made their TV debuts. Do you remember when the critics said that reality TV would soon die? Well, I think not. Just turn on any of the major broadcast or cable networks and without fail  you can find at least one reality show each evening. Think The Biggest Loser, Survivor, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance?, The Apprentice, The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars and the list goes on. Now that’s just on Network TV.

In an effort to keep up with other reality shows out there, MTV’s 17th season of The Real World will take place in Las Vegas. Coincidence, I think not! With the huge success from all of the Real Housewives franchises, Bravo premiered the Miami version last week. If you are a Bravo viewer you may have noticed promos for the New York season for a few weeks now. You may have also noticed that all of a sudden they stopped promoting New York and started promoting Miami just a few days before it aired.  Well, rumor has it that there just wasn’t enough drama this season in New York so last minute they decided to shelf New York and start  Miami early. It’s clearly all about the drama.…

What will you be watching this season?
