Wow... nobody mentioned any reality tv shows? Really!? Fucking really!?!?
I would give any scripted sitcom the time of day before I watch a reality show, even shitty ones like Friends
90% of Futurama's
jokes flew over the heads of it's target audience, which in a way does make it kinda shitty, but I'd rather have a smart shitty animated program than The Cleveland Show
UPN can't be given credit for syndicated cartoons that benefit from nostalgia and the fact that today's Saturday morning fare is making kids slightly more retarded than any prior generation. I mean, fuck, if it weren't for Street Sharks
, Mummies Alive
, Mighty Max
, and all that other shit, Exosquad
might have gotten some god damn airtime.
Rocko's Modern Life
was the fucking shit, and only John K's run on Ren & Stimpy
comes close to matching it in terms of madcap, no bullshit children's programming.
Now, as I was saying at the start, this whole thread should list reality TV programs.
Flavor of Love
So You Think You Can Dance
I Love New York
Rock of Love
Wife Swap/Trading Spouses
Anything that follows a fucking celebrity and his/her family/handlers around.
And the fucking bane of my fucking existence:
