The seven hottest reality TV stars

by Kristin Sample, posted Nov 20th 2007 9:21AM
Yul Kwon As you probably know AOL TV is listing the 50 Sexiest Women of TV. This week they added numbers 30-21. Looking at these pictures just brings back memories--Katie Holmes on Dawson's Creek! I almost forgot she started on the small screen before she became the kept woman of that wacko Tom Cruise.

Their list over at AOL inspired me to create my own list--this time of Reality TV stars. Be sure to write who you would add to either AOL TV's list or my own list in the comments.

Spike orders crime based reality show

by Brett Love, posted Feb 20th 2007 11:59AM
Spike TVBecause there just aren't enough versions of CSI, Spike is adding a reality show to the crime solving mix. The channel has ordered ten episodes of a new show called Murder from Bunim-Murray Productions. They are best known for The Real World, Road Rules, and The Simple Life.

The new show will find two teams of contestants investigating a replica of an actual crime scene under the watchful eye of Detective Tommy Le Noir, a 20 year veteran of law enforcement. The teams have 48 hours to complete their investigation before making their final presentation to Le Noir. The team that makes the best case will have a donation made in their names to charity.

The idea makes sense for Spike, given that they already run CSI and CSI: NY. Scheduling Murder in alongside those is a good fit. On the other hand, I can't help thinking that this show was already done with Murder In Small Town X. And just going on what we have here, it sounds like it was done better then.

American Idol All-Stars?

by Brett Love, posted Feb 10th 2007 1:14PM
Clay AikenWe've already seen Survivor and Big Brother go the all-star route. And The Amazing Race is getting set to kick off their own version. Heck, it seems like every time I click by MTV there is another show filled with past Road Rules and Real World cast members. So why not American Idol?

According to TV Guide, Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe is trying to sell Fox on the concept. It's part of the planned songwriting competition. Lythgoe's idea is to narrow those entries down to ten songs and then bring in ten former Idol contestants to sing the songs on the show.

I'm not an Idol fan, but I have to say, that's a solid idea. I'm guessing they won't be able to get Kelly Clarkson, and chances are Jennifer Hudson won't be involved. But assuming that they can manage to get ten of the more popular contestants, this should make for another huge week of ratings. And an American Idol All-Stars CD... And an American Idol All-Stars Special Edition DVD... And... good grief, Idol is just a machine. At this point it's rivaled only by the power of Harry Potter.

Real World comes to Denver

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 11th 2006 10:08AM
denverIf you enjoy the Real World for some reason, you'll be interested to know the 18th edition of the long-running reality series will debut on MTV later this year. This time the young, vacuous and gorgeous will be setting up residence in Denver, Colorado, the Mile High City, home of skiing, and, since I've never been there before, I'm going to say it's also the birthplace of the triangular waffle. Someone else can verify that. Neither the Governor of Colorado nor the Mayor of Denver, who has the totally awesome surname of "Hickenlooper," know much about the show, but they're welcoming it with open arms. The new cast of melodramatic twentysomethings will live in the city's downtown area, but it's not known just yet what their job will be.

Real World Austin: Danny Goes Home

by Karina Longworth, posted Aug 10th 2005 3:16PM
Last time on The Real World Austin, Danny's mom died, and Danny blamed himself (it wasn't actually his fault or anything - he's just sensitive like that). On this week's episode, Danny flies home for the funeral, and the rest of the castmates stay in Austin and think about what life, death, family and love mean to tham. So, in short, this is the most emo reality show episode ever.

Back in Texas, Wes and Nehemiah eat burittos and talk about parents.  Nehemiah mentions that he's never met his dad, and that his mom is a life-long drug addict, currently in rehab. Wes gives him this crazy look, as if to say, "Oh shit, I forgot - you're a minority" - Wes has obviously never actually met anyone with a past anywhere near as "unfortunate" as this. This scene is fantastic, because with all of Wes' intolerable frat boy bravado, just that shot of the look he gives Nehemiah is enough to jab at how spoiled and sheltered and afraid of the world the guy actually is. He is, essentially, street-smarts wise, The Token Country Virgin.

The Real World: Austin premieres tomorrow

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 20th 2005 3:11PM

Real World: AustinHere's some sad news: The Real World: San Diego was the top-rated series on basic cable among viewers 12 to 34 in 2004. Um...12? Yikes. Look, I'll be the first to admit that I'm waaaaay past the age where my opinion matters about The Real World (say, about 20 years past), and I haven't watched the show in a few years, but how can this be a good thing? The show now seems to be populated by, well, morons, and people who really seem to know they are on TV and are playing a part. There's only one thing worse than a drunk 21 year old and that's a media saavy 21 year old.

It's sometimes hard to remember that The Real World, in it's Los Angeles, San Francisco and (first) New York seasons, was actually worth watching. Now it's just another reality show, and a bad one at that.
