This show is whats wrong with T.V. today!! Thank god for fx,showtime,hbo,usa networks! I watched one episode of this show with the two crybaby spoiled brats(Losers). Never again whatever is played on this network is not worth watching. Tell the two no name losers to get over themselves and please get rid of all these fake so called reality shows!!!!!!!!!!

I stopped watching 'Dancing with the stars' when I couldent tell the difference between the dancer and the 'celebrity'. That was about 4 seasons ago.

I wasnt too impressed with The celebrity Apprentice 2 either.

Has it gotten so bad that NBC had to hire a VP for reality programming? Ugh! Very little of it is watchable.
And there's really two different kinds of reality TV...documentaries like "Cops" on Fox, and competition shows like "Survivor" on CBS and "The(Celebrity)Apprentice " on NBC. I agree with actress Cate Blanchett, who, when she was interviewed by James Lipton on "Inside the Actors Studio," remarked that "reality TV is about as far from reality as you can get."

I don't even believe that they are in another country. The set looks like it is on a back lot at a Studio.

If give a flying sh*t if they leave the show.....they are unblievably horrible.

Anyone who believes that "reality" TV isn't 100% staged and scripted is a complete idiot. You really think that a network is going to invest millions of dollars into a TV show and leave everything to *chance*?

This is shocking news!! Actually, it's really sad news as a decent percentage of people that invest lots of time watching bad reality television are probably stupid enough to think this garbage is all non-scripted. Nobody clued them in when they converted over from watching professional wrestling.

Am I the only one who wishes, along with Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Lindsey Lohan and all other "reality stars/fake celebrities" were on that Air France flight?

Does this mean that the whole Jon and Kate and their potential split up story is just a stunt by TLC to get more viewers?
