TV Land picks up something called a "docusoap"

TV LandJust when you thought we had reached the nadir of mixed TV words with "dramedy" and "celebreality," here comes another word we all have to get used to: "docusoap."

That's how the new TV Land series Harry Loves Lisa is being described. It stars real-life husband and wife Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna. Regardless of what they call it, you know exactly what it is: a reality show that's going to show the day to day lives of two Hollywood stars, because everyone in the world wants to know what Harry Hamlin eats for breakfast and what Lisa Rinna's dressing room is like. And still the network doesn't show The Dick Van Dyke Show.

You know what? You can't see The Dick Van Dyke Show on TV right now, but you can watch every episode at SlashControl. After the jump, one of my favorites.

Actually, "docusoap" has been used on German TV for quite a while now and for the same kind of crappy programming. Obviously, over here people think that kind of stuff sells better with an English label. But I didn't know we actually invented it. Normally our guys just copy trashy formats from overseas. So, congratulations on the import!
