    ...I agree with that honey, those based on building things like cars and such I think are cool, but like this new "Splash" coming out?...REALLY?...people diving in water???...who gives a damn?...

    I'd agree with that--don't really put those into the same category. I was thinking more of the Kardashian/Jersey Shore etc. "reality" shows.

    *gag* The same people who think Mr. King's work is immoral and scary apparently can tolerate Snookie, though. It defies logic.

    Y'all need to REDNECKANIZE, baby!!!!!!!!!! I absolutely despise 'reality' shows! I won't hold it against you if you like them, but they sure ain't my cup o' tea. I got better things to do with my time (like read a good book).

    Thankfully I have no qualms about liking both, and I do like both (to a lesser and different degree for Snooki). So there you go, haters...

    I don't even know what a "Snookie" is! As far as the reality T.V goes... I like to watch the cooking and travel shows. (especially the Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor motorbike adventure type shows)
    My one guilty pleasure reality show has been Survivor. (Except I've missed almost the entire current series.)

    It's a scientific term meaning a petri dish for syphilis.
