    That kind of sucks since Apprentice was one of my favorite reality TV shows. In the back of my mind I secretly wished the task would be to set up a Transformers promotional event for Hasbro. But since the show won't be continuing I guess it's not likely

    Sounds like there's a new phrase: "You're cancelled!".

    After the glut of truly terrible "reality" shows the UK is currently suffering, and with yet another dismal Big Brother fiasco looming on the horizon, the only reality show I want to see would be "Who Wants To Execute The People Who Make Reality Shows?"
    I'd watch every episode of that.

    First season was great. Second season was good. It jumped the shark after that.

    ^^^

    The only reality shows I've ever watched are the ones I stumble into during the last five minutes when a real show is about to come on...you know, the ones with like, writers, actors and some semblance of a creative process.

    On a related note, there's an American Idol spinoff next year where rather than finding one obnoxious tool to sing other people's songs, they'll attempt to foist an entire 'band' on the population. Somebody just fucking shoot me in the ear now.

    I only pay attention to Donald Trump when he's calling Rosie O'Donnell a fat-ass...good times.

    I've been watching the unedited version on "The Food Network" occassionally. Good lord Gordon Ramsey has a serious mouth. I SERIOUSLY hope that's not how it is in the restaurant industry :eek:

    The Apprentice is total crap, as is Donald Trump. They can both be gone forever as far as I'm concerned.

    I usually despise so called reality television, but watching a bunch of smug self-absorbed yuppies fail miserably at relatively basic business and get demolished by one of the least pretentious businessmen in the country often results in comedy gold.

    Sorry to any that like it but I say good riddance, one less reality show clogging up the air waves.

    Reality television is inherently garbage.

    Anybody who really doesn't like it should read Erik Barmack's "The Virgin." Entertaining and a thorough evisceration of reality television and the networks behind them.

    I saw the first couple seasons, but after that it just kind of.. disappeared off the TV. I wish all the other reality shows would disappear with it. This summers line-up makes me wanna toss my TV in the garbage.
