Are Reality Shows the New Talk Shows?

Remember how we used to watch the ‘Jerry Springer’ show or the ‘Maury Povich’ show or any of the other shows cause we just had to know how it turned out?  We had to know who the baby daddy was!!  We had to know if siblings really slept together without realizing it.  Remember???  Those shows were, I now shudder to admit it, addicting.

I have been coming home to dd watching ‘Ink Master’, ‘Tattoo Nightmares’, ‘Kitchen Nightmares’, etc and I am a firm believer that these new shows are becoming the new talk shows.  They are very addicting – we just have to find out if Sarah gets kicked off ‘Ink Master’ cause she is the artist we love to hate and we just have to see how Chef Ramsey handles the mess called a restaurant.

I have now made it a rule that when I get home from work, these shows will be changed to something else because hubby is so not into them and I get frustrated with the crying babbling mess on the screen and after working all day, the last thing I want to deal with is more drama.

And seriously, that’s all they are.  Drama.  Just like the talk shows where chairs are being thrown and women are crying hysterically and men are stomping around throwing punches…no thank you.  I’d rather watch the news than those shows!!!
