    It is. I watched the first episode. From what I saw, it's mostly about three Amish guys who own lots of guns and throw keg parties for Amish kids.

    Not all reality shows are bad, though. I actually enjoyed John and Kate Plus 8 when it was on. Pawn Stars is pretty good, too.

    I tihnk they aired it with good intentions, showing how hard it is to be a teen mom, but like all reality show things it went bad the moms were glamorized and some (Amber, Jenelle) didn't deal with it well and turned to drugs. And now there are girls out there trying to get pregnant because they want on the show. They chose 13 girls (sometimes less) for one season and they think they have a shot?
    MTV needs to rename their channel or go back to actually showing music videos.
    I think their MTV music video awards are a joke, I've never seen any of the music videos nominated becuase they are never shown on MTV. People obviously just vote on who they know not for the artistry of the video.
    Why doesn't MTV have a reality show awards (why doesn't any channel have that)


    Oh and I found another horrible reality show of Bravo
    The Shas of (something or other) Sahara or something. They aren't famous they aren't anything really, they aren't even heirs to anything.

    BTW should this go under the movies and TV forum?

    ^ MTV *never* has good intentions. Especially not when they're one of the first big networks to produce and replicate the plague that we know as "Reality" TV. That network, and basically all the alternative music channels (most of which are owned by MTV/Viacom) all perpetuate stereotypes and push songs that are catchy, but tend to have absolutely mindless or negative messages in their lyrics.

    Agree on TLC... WTF happened to that damn channel... Like the people that owned the network all got lobotomized or something...

    :) 

    Yet, it's one of the only "reality" shows that I remotely enjoy, though. Pawn Stars is another, but that's mainly just for the historical content. I honestly don't care for the cast members a whole lot and everything else. I do like seein the items and the trivia stuff.

    Aside from that, "reality" tv is trash. It's not even good "pulp". It doesn't even make for good white noise. It's completely worthless to me.

    Duck Dynasty.

    When I first saw the premier ad for the show, I literally thought it was a spoof ad. I figures it was going to be like a geico commercial or something. Then the ad ends and I realize: "Oh lord...That's an actual show."

    Funny, I thought it was some action comedy flick starring Jackie Chan or Chow Yun Fat with Dolph Lundgren (sic) :lol 

    (I do love that show mind you IMO)

    Uncle Si is absolutely GREAT. He's funny and lovable. However, I could only make it through a few episodes of that show, as the rest of the show just bored me to sleep. No joke. I literally fell asleep watching it I was so bored.

    Amish Mafia since when The Amish had a Mafia. The Italian Mafia mush laughing their butts off. The Only Good Really show are Pawn Stars (and it's 3 Spin-Offs),American Pickers, & Toy Hunter.

    "Which reality tv show is the most absurd?"

    Isn't that like asking what kind of water's the wettest?
