they do get paid though... these pseudo-celebrities ... like the clowns on the Jersey Shore... etc etc... They get paid because they get viewers, write/have someone ghost write their life stories and people buy them and read them.

If no one put money into these programs by watching them and buying things from sponsored advertisers, they would not exist. There's a "need" the programs fill a need...

Now whether or not it's healthy or good for you... they don't care, they are just making money...

Just like other industries that don't care about the negative effects and just about the green and the checks....
(haha, I rhymed!!)

I could go on about the thesis of reality television it terms of how the terminology of the concept began with such things as game shows talk shows ect ect and that it's really no dumber then stupid sitcoms dramas that write a script on reality which we of course get pumped up about when really "into" a tv show through our vertical cortex, i could also come to some kind of deduction in the context of what the percentage of brain mater wasted per kilometer when factoring the law of averages of light speed spent on watching reality tv vs scripted shows.


But instead i wont i'll just say GO COACH i hope you win Survivor!!!!!!! lol.....
