Opeth, yes it is shallow.
Real is watching your uncle Bob sit in his underwear watching the Bears game on Sunday.
ROFL don't worry I'm sure we will see that on TV next. hahah matter of fact I remember watching somewhere where they were going to film real people in their home doing what they do. hahaha
I think Survivor did start it, however before that I use to watch on the Discovery channel the ECHO Challenge. Were people all over the world go on this 300 mile race.
'Beverly Hillbillies'? now that is just plain sad and wrong.
I wonder what the contract would be for the show where they try to scare you to death? I wouldn't sign it!
I know there is a new show out I think called something like 'Meet the Parents' I am not sure if it is called that. But, this guy dates a bunch of these girls and the parents decided weather or not they like them, and they video tape these girls without them knowing, and some of the have to take lie detector tests. Personally, it's hard enough meeting someones parents for the first time, I can't imagine being under a microscope like that!
In a nut shell, when the public gets tired of seeing it, I think the shows will hopefully stop.
