19 Kids and Counting Canceled

Finally this obscene program is gone

Hard to believe this horrible show ran to 10 seasons but the Discovery Channel's standards for reality shows is so low they just couldn't think of anything better so let it run. Popular it is rumored but it has to be with hillbillies that can't get out of that lounge chair and change the channel or turn it off.

The reality show “19 Kids and Counting” is never coming back to TLC.

The cable channel said Thursday that it has officially cancelled the show, nearly two months after revelations about acts of child molestation committed by one of the 19 kids, Josh Duggar, when he was a teenager.

Several of his sisters were among the victims.

TLC initially pulled the past episodes of “19 Kids and Counting” from its schedule, but kept open the possibility that the show would resume someday.

Now it’s saying production of the series will not resume, despite its longtime popularity.

Danger Decoded total BS

With terrible non-professional footage you get to watch an accident about to happen. You are then asked to look for keys telling what will happen. The problem is the keys you can't possibly see are the same for all three options they give you .... so the whole "mystery:" is just a joke. The only slight value to this BS program is you get to see the "catastrophe" if you like that kind of thing.

Before each catastrophe plays out, viewers are challenged to predict what is about to go terribly wrong. 

Will the parachute fail to open? Or will two skydivers collide in mid-air? Or perhaps it is the small aircraft; will the plane crash before the skydivers even jump?

Another NatGeo bomb of a Reality Show ...... Terrible

The Worst Cook or the worst hair

Anne Burrell's hair joins the competition

The Food Network host of "Worst Cooks in America" also has about the worst hairdo I've seen on TV. I think something similar was semi popular 20-30 years ago but it didn't last long. Many of the reality cooking shows are pretty good but why base one on the worst. It's not a comedy but probably should be.

Unreal Reality Show - Shipping Wars

The stars, if you can call them that, of this program are either unprofessional or rude or both. They are constantly mis-communicating with clients, taking things that don't fit, that aren't ready, expected to do the loading, too delicate and excepting ridiculous penalties. All that while being criticized by Marc or Roy. 

I guess I can believe most of that .... but what I can't believe is how the same 4-5 people are always competing for trips all over the US from Seattle to Florida. I mean you don't bid on stuff if it's 4-5 days away for reasons of economy and time limits. They all drive gas/diesel guzzlers and could end up anywhere is the US. Just not believable. 

Mister Negative Marc

Know it all - hyper Roy 
Roy died of a heart attack last year

Then they get serious with this - gotta shake your head

Did Jennifer from Shipping Wars have a boob job? What is Jennifer Brennan's bra size?. Join us as we get the scoop on the newest season of the A&E show "Shipping Wars" with Star Jennifer Brennan.

The Briefcase is Reality TV Porn

Reality TV’s sick depths: How the altruism porn of “The Briefcase”...

Let's get people living paycheck to paycheck to squirm — and even fight — over a satchel of much-needed money!

In the fiscal year 2014, CBS chief Les Moonves made in excess of $54 million, Vulture reported. In other words, he made more in a day than the entire amount each family is competing for. For him and other CBS executives to take American's economically vulnerable and force them into a bizarre cage match of faux-selflessness is just sick. Rather than gawking at poverty, CBS, and everyone else should be looking for ways to eliminate it.

The Briefcase - How Much Would You Share? CBS Announces New Reality Series The Briefcase.

As if to prove there are new depths to be plumbed in the world of reality television (because who knew?), CBS just debuted The Briefcase, a show which takes poverty porn, class anxiety, emotional manipulation and exploitation and packages them all neatly into a pretty despicable hour of primetime television
