'Little People, Big World' To End Run
Source: Multichannel News
I never saw what the big deal about that show was. They just seemed like normal people to me, I guess I am either too tolerant (or whatever the right word is), or I just didn't see enough episodes. I always kinda thought "They are not as big as I am, but other than that they are just "normal" people. What's the big deal?"
The premise was weak but my guess is that the show ran out of 'little people' willing to put themselves on exhibition for no other reason than they are short.
To be successful in the long term, a show needs to have a valid reason for existing, like 'Jersey Shore', 'The Kardashians', 'Kate & Eight' and 'Real Housewives', shows I, personally, would never watch. For some perverse reason, people who have miserable existences seem to have a need to watch tv programming featuring other people who also have miserable lives.
I watched the first few seasons, but then got bored. I didn't see much difference between them and a regular family. Well except for all the vacations that the show paid for.
Really, Nick? Feel free to step down off that high horse.
A high horse is a nice change from the dead horses that keep popping up around here.
:lol: Like my avatar? :lol:
This show has run its course over several years and it makes sense to end it. With the twins going to college, that's only the Matt and Amy and the 2 kids left.
Interesting blog about the family and the show:
I watched this show a few times and thought it was a reality show, and stopped watching it. It was OK.
There have been several episodes with an undercurrent of the problems between the mom and dad. Maybe those problems are coming to a head. Also, it has been on for quite a while...
Maybe they could adopt a new kid or get saddled with some relative's kid like they always do with dying sitcoms -- Remember All in the Family, Growing Pains, Who's the Boss... :lol:
I found it interesting that the 'cliff hanger' episode (last show of last season) where Matt collapses on the floor was actually recorded in the middle of the last season.
TLC has become a reality channel I feel.
