That is A LOT of reality shows. No wonder actors and actresses don't like reality shows. They are taking over scripted shows

I think I'll give Beverly Hills Nannies and Redneck Island a try

Real actors like reality shows when they're washed up and looking for something to make them relevant again.

Like Charlie Sheen who is Winning!

I don't think he has a reality show even

Was just thinking that myself as several reality celeb based shows ended for the season. The problem with celebs that are all washed up and looking for work is that many of them don't know when to hang up the act and retire already.

This IS a very long list of reality shows, especially in June! I'm surprised they forgot America's Got Talent. That debuted in May and is very popular. Apparently Mark Burnett of Survivor fame will have six reality shows going at once across different networks come fall.

Geez, how can one person do all this. He'd be spread so thin.

Greediness I tell you

Hell's Kitchen just started as did MasterChef; I might watch those (of course NEXT Monday); Take Me Out, Bachelor Pad and The Choice, not my cup of tea, so I'll pass on those. I don't get cable or Dish TV (broke) so, other than the Summer games, it looks like it's boreville for me.

Man I thought I was a Reality TV fan, I have not heard of half of these shows. I do watch Masterchef and Hell's Kitchen. I watch most of the "well-known" reality shows. I can't wait for Big Brother to start tonight.

We watch very few of these shows, I guess we need a little content that does not seem faked out. I think the only show I caught that we do watch (now) is Whale Wars.

I'm enjoying all the auction shows right now. I used to go to a lot of auctions with my brother. That's where I used to get some real deals on antiques. The shows on television really are ruining the real venues because they are so unrealistic in what you can sell stuff for. They did the same thing with the coupon shows by misrepresenting reality.

I love Storage Wars and now Storage Wars Texas. I laughed so hard to find a Bubba on the Texas show and him and Rick crack me up almost every time I watch. I also like Pawn Stars, but am not as crazy about the Cajun version. I see a show called Craft Wars, though, and I hadn't heard of that one so I'm going to try to watch that this week.

Yes, and the main reason this is happening is because these reality shows are cheaper to put out then scripted dramas. You don't need a writing team, you don't need to come up with sets. But most importantly you don't need to cast and pay actors to work on the show. With reality programs you come up with a concept of what the reality show will be about then go about finding the people to be in it. Yes, this is sort of like a casting call but a bit different then casting a scripted show, and also the pay these individuals get won't be half as high as professional actors would be given.

So, I can't say I blame professional actors for not liking reality shows. Budget wise they are cheaper to do. Which could be why they are now taking over daytime, with scripted programs such as a soap opera being systematically removed from the schedule.

Budget wise reality shows are cheaper to produce and distribute, but most of them are scripted.

It is not as detailed as the dramas or comedies but they do have writers. Check out the credits for any reality show and you'll see them in the scroll

A writer friend of mine watches those shows; she recaps them for Gather. I saw a few episodes of Craft Wars, but I found it to be really boring. It just made little sense as a TV show, and the crafts weren't even that great.

I can't see myself being parked in front of the tv set watching reality shows in the Summer time. I'd tivo it if it were worth the effort.
