    Any reality show as far as I'm concerned. Sorry.

    Reality TV hands down, the Velveeta of entertainment... without the shelf life.

    The dumbing down of the storytelling process is one of the greatest crimes committed against the people by marketing scum and target group *****s.

    Does anyone remember a very brief NBC drama from the mid-80s called "Helltown", that featured Robert Blake playing a priest? Surely that has to be one of the worst.

    Amen amen and amen! Reality TV shows would more accurately be called Unreality shows.

    Bratty, self-centered, hyper-privileged teens star in a commercial for elitism, avarice, and superficiality.

    Yes, Helltown. Robert Blake as a priest, if I remember. The awfulness of that concept is indescribable.

    What about that show about the blind detective? Seems less then plausible. It could only be stupider if they gave him a gun.

    Good God, I don't know how I forgot about that one. I must have blocked it from my memory. That definitely bumps Shipmates from my list and skyrockets towards the top. It's not worse than "I Want a Famous Face," though.

    Well, at least I can feel sorry for the people in "Famous Face." They obviously have extremely low self-esteem. The psychology is interesting. I end up wondering how they reached the point where they think a "famous face" will make all their pain go away.

    The brats on "Sweet 16" have no souls. I feel nothing but buring contempt for them.

    The Osbournes (if that isn't an anti sex/drugs commercial nothing is)
    Joannie loves Chachie
    Joanne of Arcadia (high school girl talks to God)
    Alf
    Baby Bob (makes a comeback with Quiznos)

    Ps. i love my sweet 16, you just have to laugh at the parents, they are so easily manipulated plus I love when they talk about what they spent on the party, like MTV isn't chipping in.

    "Blind Justice." It looked stupid from the first time I saw a promo for it, me and my GF just laughed...

    I'm glad someone else remembers Helltown, I was thinking I was the only one. Who on Earth thought Robert Blake would make a good priest??
