What is up with the obsession with reality TV? Are our lives THAT uninteresting that we must watch complete strangers make asses of themselves on television?
Why this rant? Why today? Because I found out that the Tang-hued moron of ‘Jersey Shore’–The Situation–is estimated to be raking in $5 million dollars this year through salary and endorsements. FIVE. MILLION. DOLLARS. All that for being a gigantic tool on television.
Not only that, but apparently even Wall Street felt the pull of the pop-culture phenomoron, evidenced by the NJS crew ‘Ringing the Bell’ on July 27 of this year. God help us all.
Why do YOU watch reality television? Just curious… Yes, I will probably judge you based on your answer, but I watch some of that crap, too.
