I can't believe the crap that's on tv today with all the singing and dancing shows on the airways anymore. American Idol, The Voice, The X-Factor, Dancing With the Stars, Can You Dance?.

I don't think I would have a problem with just one of them, but with different networks competing with one another while copying each other, it's become a huge problem with the quality on programming these days. These kind of shows are cheaper to make than sitcom shows. What network wouldn't want to save money? Unfortunately, these shows are probably here to stay.

I will admit, I did start watching American Idol with the start of their second season in 2001 I believe, and watched just two seasons of it before I got tired of it and moved on. I'm surprised it's still getting the ratings, even though the ratings aren't as high as they were when they started out. Hopefully this show and all the others I mentioned in this blog will be off the air in another 2-3 years. I won't hold my breath though.

I'm sure women are keeping these shows going.

How many of you actually watch any of these shows?

I don't watch any of them.

I watched the first season or two of Survivor, and then got bored with that too.

Too much reality shows, too much talk shows, too much cooking shows..too much bullshit on the tv anymore. I got so tired of it, that I actually watch a couple of the shows on Disney like Jessie, Austin and Ally, A.N.T Farm, Shake It Up, and Good Luck Charlie. They're cute shows, good for a chuckle. I even got tired of the Animal Cops shows on Animal Planet....it gets to be too disheartening to know there are so many idiot people or cruel people out there who don't give a damn about animals.

People will say, ''If you don't like it, then don't watch it.'' I wish it was that simple. More specifically you can't avoid the flood of commercials promoting them on several channels that don't even broadcast the damned things

Good point on them being cheaper and that was one of the drivers for introducing them to begin with. I don't pay too much attention to articles about them, but I have seen stories on the CNN Web site indicating that the ratings are down for those types as well as reality shows like Survivor.

I'm sure women are keeping these shows going.

No doubt!!! With those shows as well as reality shows like Survivor and Big Brother, you are the only guy I know that watched any of them

I know I need to get out more and I am counting down the days, now 83, to when I will be able to start doing that I rarely watch CNN, it is my home page on the computer. I don't watch TV all that much but there are things I watch besides sports, usually shows of interest to men They just don't happen to be shows of interest to women and you

I used to like Ice Road Truckers when it came out. I never knew until that show came out that some of those rigs were actually driven over frozen lakes. I don't know about anyone else, but I would be terrified at the idea of that! I remember one episode where the truckers were talking about spring coming and that their ice trucking season was coming to an end, and one of the truckers was crossing the lake for the last time that season and the top of the ice had standing water already. I thought "Oh hell no!!! There is no pay worth attempting that!!!!!!" He drove it and back without incident. But like all reality shows...the novelty wears off and it became just another show, and I eventually got bored with watching it.

The sad thing with reality shows, eventually it becomes the same thing over and over, thus it becomes boring. I just turned on the Weather Channel to check the local forecast and they are advertising a show, Reel Rivals, yet another reality show, this time charter boat fishing.

Some reality shows...fine...but there are just so many of them today, it's a bore. Sometimes people turn on tv to get away from reality.

Since I got rid of the cable I mostly watch PBS and most of the shows I watch on there come out of Great Britain, I refuse to watch any show that I am pretty sure kills brain cells, Look for more reality tv because they are cheap to produce and they are kind of like the car wreck where everyone stops to gawk so they also get ratings,
