    What do you get when you take all the losers from Flavor of Love, Rock of Love and I Love New York? You get I Love Money. Shallow and moronic dating show cast offs tossing aside what little dignity they had left for cash money.

    If you can stomach it cast your eyes upon the whores (and gigolos) of Babylon! http://blog.vh1.com/2008-05-09/i-love-money-the-full-cast-revealed/

    I'm embarrassed to admit this, but, I cannot wait for this show to start.

    Yes, its shameless, its gratuitous, its stupid, its awful, its disgusting, but its gonna be so wonderful.

    Yes, the "contestants" on the show are going to be exploited for ratings but... they know it, we know it-- its all consensual.

    Yes, this show literally will degrade humanity as a whole but... sometimes its just awesome and fun to watch a beautifully choreographed human train wreck.

    I'm sure there'll be plenty of nauseating moments but... I cannot wait.

    This show is the culmination of years and years of reality TV. This show is the pinnacle of reality tv.

    I should probably be embarrassed to admit this, but if they took all these losers from this show and set them on fire, I would watch the hell out of that.

    Remember when vh-1 played music. Whats with all the music networks?
    Why is mtv called that if they never play music.

    Right, it is -except...

    I would think that "Reality TV" should be something that could actually happen without the presence of cameras and all these external factors cooking up the situation.

    What is real about selecting people who look and act a certain way, then creating a situation which you can exploit?

    They hit bottom of the barrel long ago and are now digging through the floor and are several feet below ground level...

    It's called MTV for Misc Television. No longer Music Television, but the acronym still fits! The only goodness to come from this will be the bashing of it on The Soup and Best Week Ever.

    To me "Reality" TV isn't this crap or Survivor or most other shows on MTV, VH1, and E!. I call that TV "Crapality" TV. To me the most "reality" TV on is Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, Ax Men, etc even though some of it is probably scripted for more drama. It just seems more real in my eyes.

    All I want to know is when THe Running Man is going to be made a reality. Then I'll tune in. We can't be far from it now. I bet it's been pitched somewhere.

    I must confess I used to watch their "I Love the" and "Best Week Ever" religiously.

    I say that at lest 5 times a day at work.


    IMO any "reality" show that has a winner weather it's money, a bachelor/ bachelorette, or even a job is a game show.

    MTV, MTV2 and VH1 are mostly wastes of time. I liked a few of the "reality" shows on VH1 (Celebrity Rehab, Surreal Life, I Love the 80s), but most were painful (Flavor of Love, Rock of Love, any MTV dating show).

    Right now the best channel for me is MHD (Music in High Definition). It does repeat a lot of stuff, but they actually play music videos, live performances, etc. Throw in a showing of This is Spinal Tap every so often and that's not too shabby of a channel. I just want more variety from it. I can even tolerate the country stuff that gets played as long as there is good musicianship involved.

    About the only decent thing I've seen on VH1 lately was on Sunday morning, and that was "Caddyshack" as part of their Movies That Rock...

    ...and then right afterward they start showing their brand new series, I Love The New Millennium. WTF? The decade's not even over yet and we're already nostalgic about it???
