    Never watched it. Something about people singing and stuff. I have heard that it gets good ratings. Am I going to be forced to watch it now?:confused: If that is the case then I vote yes. I hate being forced to watch any program.

    It doesn't seem to me you're actually watching the show. And what's to hate? If I hated everything going on in my frame of vision I thought was a stupid waste of time, I'd be angry a lot of the time.;)

    Mods, please close the poll and thread, I did not realize it would be taken to such literal extremes.

    "I think?" "...most of us?" "...already determined?" "...probably?"

    You want to come across as sure of yourself, but you speak with a passive voice. Fact is, what you think doesn't matter to me, and what you think you know is BS. A word of advice, never make assertions you can't back up and don't disparage people about whom you know nothing.

    What I'm more less sick of is reality TV making stars out of people that haven't paid their dues. WWE's new incarnation of Tough Enough is doing this. They are taking people who have no business in pro wrestling and trying to make them a "star". I'd much rather see some dcumentary type stuff on guys working their way through the ranks and in the minors, like OVW and then doing dark shows, etc.

    I feel Idol is doing the same thing.

    I understand what you're saying, but would counter that with the fact that many Idol contestants have been trying to break into the business for years and this is just another avenue for them (so, many have paid their dues).

    This latest crop of AI folks are surprisingly professional and accomplished. Previous years not so much.

    I never have nor ever will watch these reality singing, dancing, amazing race, survivor, etc. shows. So yes, I would join the haters club but not because my wife makes me watch these shows.. she doesn't like this crap either. ;)

    Too bad, n3. Maybe you should start a "Reality Haters" thread. ;)

    Except that there's nothing 'real' about any of them.

    Hey, I didn't coin the genre, ok? Besides, if you call it anything else, some of the scripted trash will come under attack. :rolleyes:
