Reality show casting calls

casting callA day hasn't gone by where we haven't received some sort of tip or email asking us, the TV Squad, how to get on [insert reality show here]. Unfortunately no, Simon Cowell does not work for us, and Donald Trump isn't my BFF, so we really can't help all that much.

The folks at RealityWanted.com often send us a list of new and existing reality shows that are looking for new, er, talent, and they've given us permission to make mention of them here. We'll try to make this a regular feature as often as we get a new list.

This time we have Rock of Love, Family Court and a lot of new shows.

Reality shows are facing budget cuts?

by Brett Love, posted May 28th 2008 10:20AM
Moment Of Truth Your scary thought of the day comes from this Reuters article. When talking about how many reality shows are now facing pressure to cut budgets and shoot shows faster they drop this bomb in, "The rapid pace can affect a show's quality..." Great! Because what the TV world really needs right now is some lower quality reality programming. I get Fox Reality. Based on some of what I've seen while flipping by there, I really thought the bottom of that barrel had been discovered.

As part of the discussion they cite the rise in studio based reality, highlighting Fox's Moment Of Truth. They also throw out that crappy stat that it was the highest-rated new program of the season. Is there anyone, anywhere, including the producers of Moment Of Truth, that doesn't think that was entirely to do with American Idol? I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that when the Tuesday ratings are in they bring with them a karmic Nielsen slap that puts that show in its proper place.

The craptacular FOX summer schedule

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 16th 2008 12:00PM

FOX premieres their less than impressive summer scheduleI'm going to be honest with you because you all have been honest with me. Sometimes a bit too honest. Sometimes honest to the point of being creepy and making me change my phone number. But, honest nonetheless.

Anyway, I may be a bit jaded in my opinions of the summer schedule that FOX released last week. I mean, they take two of the most popular dramas on their schedule -- Bones and House -- and just bounce them around the schedule so much just so they can accommodate five thousand hours of American Idol. Frankly, it pisses me off a bit.

That's why I need your help to determine if I am way off in thinking that their summer programming schedule is a heaping pile of poo. Take a look at the schedule after the jump and then we'll talk.

The Moment of Truth booth

by Kristin Sample, posted Jan 21st 2008 9:01AM
The Moment of TruthOn January 23rd, FOX will debut its newest gameshow, The Moment of Truth. On the show, contestants will have to answer 21 increasingly personal questions honestly (as determined by a polygraph) to win $500,000. Now, that's a lot of cash, but is it worth revealing your deepest feelings on national television while your family, friends, or spouse sit on stage and heckle you? After trying it out today, I really don't know.

FOX set up a Moment of Truth Booth here in Santa Monica at the Third Street Promenade and let people try out the game in front of shoppers and other passers-by. For those of you who haven't been to Santa Monica, the Promenade is an open-air shopping mall with street performers, restaurants, and sadly, way too many homeless people. I'll give you the run-down of the questions they asked me after the jump.
