Reality bites

The mysterious voice(s) of In Arguendo, with a sentiment we are proud to echo:

We would like to take just one moment to, well, brag really that we have NEVER watched one single episode of ANY reality show that has come out in the last couple of years. Not Survivor, Big Brother, Fear Factor, Who Wants To Marry A Millionaire, or any of them. Yes, this makes us feel good, and we just wanted to share.

This item was titled American Idol Finals!!, and no, I didn't watch that either. Frankly, if I want to see relentlessly-mediocre people who are in way over their heads, I can always tune in C-Span's Congressional coverage.

Sigh. I wish, OH, how I wish that I could make that same claim...but living in a house with three females (five, if you include the cats), and their preference for all things "pop," I was forced to witness some of these execrable shows. Not often, I assure you, but enough to lower my estimation of humanity by more than any TV show should.
