Chilling and watching TV today, what is with these shows?

So am lazy today and planned to chill out on the couch with my laptop watching TV and doing stuff on the internet. So I have the oxygen channel on right now (becasue that was the channel the TV was already on), they are airing the show “The Bad Girls Club”, what the hell kind of show is this? It’s some kind of reality show about bitchy girls or something…

Part of me wants to watch it because it is just so out there but at the same time if we as a society get into watching people act nasty on reality shows aren’t we just encouraging the bad behavior and nastiness in our society?

What do you think about this? Have you ever seen the show I am talking about?

    I have never seen the show you mentioned but I’ve seen enough reality television shows to know that they are just ridiculous. It seems like they only exist to really highlight the nasty side of humanity. They can draw you in, but when you think about it, it is very shallow and sickening. I refuse to watch any more reality shows unless they are really different. I also think some of the so-called reality shows have some scripting and editing going on to make people’s behavior look even worse. I find real life can be cringe-worthy enough for me.

  • I think the worst I have seen so far is Paradise Hotel. It’s kind of like going past a train wreck. You feel bad, but you look anyway. Yick.

  • I haven’t seen that one. But aren’t all “reality” shows getting over-the-top nasty for ratings? Why would anybody watch a mellow, real life show? But it’s like everything… video games, tv shows, movies…if it’s not mean and nasty, nobody watches. I’m so thrilled to be bringing up my kids in this society! NOT.
