About reality shows: Perhaps, like beauty, it's in the eye of the beholder. I'm a rabid TAR fan and set the VCR to tape the episodes in case I miss one. But after watching the premier episode of the first season of 'Survivor' I felt like an hour of my life had been stolen from me. I haven't watched a minute of that lousy show since.
I also thought that Joe Millionaire sucked like a giant Hoover. Stopped watching after the first episode, but did watch the last 15 minutes of the finale to get a dose of schadenfreude and a big laugh at one of the remaining two prostitutes.
