I HATE REALITY TV... ALONG WITH ALL OTHER POPULAR TV SHOWS, LIKE CSI. I REFUSE TO WATCH THEM.

Although I do watch" The Apprentice" every now and then. That is a good show.

I have honestly never understood the fascination with Survivor I tried watching it once or twice and turned it off after about 20 minutes.

Besides, 'reality' TV is just as staged as any other TV program it just is not scripted per se.

It's supposed to be real because they are "real" people, not paid actors. It's just that what they do is far from reality. I suppose if they just did normal things, it would be boring ... oh, wait, I think that's called "Big Brother."

The only one I watch is The Apprentice because I like business and money. I watched the first Survivor, then got sick of it all.

TV needs less reality, more Seinfeld...

More Seinfeld!??... if you have cable you can watch 2 separate Seinfeld episodes at any given time starting on the half hour, every half hour, from 4PM to midnight! hahahahahaha!!!

But ya, we need more Seinfeld-TYPE shows. But that's impossible. Something revolutionary like that comes along once a generation. Really, Seinfeld left NOTHING left to do for ANY other sitcom... EVER. The best we can do is watch "A Seinfeld Story" over and over again, and the DVD special features as they trickle out year by year.

Anyway, Survivor is the only good reality show. Dating games, Fear Factor, whatever, they all suck compared to the one, the only, and the original. The only Survivor season I've missed is #5 -- Thiland. Good thing, 'cuz I heard that was the worst one. I've seen every single episode of Survivor otherwise. ....including the one later tonight. This edition is gettin' goooooooooood!

Yes, Seinfeld-type shows, Lee. Maybe I should have made a disclaimer so Canadians wouldn't get confused. We need more originality in TV. Bottom line is we both agree, except I haven't seen nearly as many Survivor shows.

I watch Survivor. I wasn't crazy for this season until last week when the alliance broke. That was too great.

I find it funny that Chris was on the chopping block in the first episode since he kept falling off the beam and now he's the only male left.

Nope, don't think you can get HBO here... maybe on satellite but not cable at least, haven't seen Curb Your Enthusiasm... might rent the DVD one day though.

Tonight's Survivor was good... sooooooo glad Ami is home. I'm tired of this feminist movement already. Everyone is equal already, if it gets any more equal it will be unequal and discrimentn against men! Get over it woman!! Her body wasn't even that good compared to some other Survivor chicks. Give me Colleen or 'Lis any day. :nod2:
