The Twelve Days of Festivus: Three reality disasters

by Michael Pascua, posted Dec 21st 2009 11:00AM
Families from There Goes the NeighborhoodOn the third day of Festivus, TV gave to me ... three reality disasters!

For every good reality show that emerges, there are several horrid shows green-lit, giving reality television its negative light. I could have gone for days talking about tons of reality shows that were disastrous. Jon and Kate Gosselin became national disasters, but even their show had some merit watching a now single Kate deal with her family.

Here are three of the worst offenders of 2009, from least to most disastrous. Oh, and if you're wondering why a certain VH1 show that had Ryan Jenkins as a contestant isn't on the list, don't worry; we'll get to that later this week.

Here are the neighbors from There Goes The Neighborhood

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 4th 2009 3:30PM
Next Sunday, CBS will launch There Goes The Neighborhood, a new reality show where several families are walled into their neighborhood, without electricity, cell phones, or computers. Though from the clip below some of the rules are bent because something has to be running the cameras and mics. When will these reality shows run out of steam?

At one point, one contestant says "how many people can say that they went on a reality show with their families?" Uh ... the lucky ones?

The Neighborhood is going to go there on CBS starting August 9

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 30th 2009 6:00PM
CBS logoI keep hearing about these summer shows coming up that I didn't even know existed. Like this one. It's a new reality show from Mike Fleiss (The Bachelor, etc) called There Goes The Neighborhood. They actually put up a twenty foot wall around a neighborhood in Atlanta, GA and cut off all of the residents from the outside world completely (though I wonder if it's really completely or just enough-to-play-the-game completely). The residents will have to interact with each other more than they probably have in the past and will also try to win money and prizes.

This could be an interesting experiment or a reality show-themed episode of The Twilight Zone: "Who Wants To Be A Monster On Maple Street?"
