It looks like the whole “reality television” trend is never going to die. Why should it? They are much cheaper to produce than the average scripted program and give society the bread & circuses they crave so much. Though I am not a fan of such programming I do, on occasion, find myself pulled into the train wrecks these people call lives. I never want to admit that fact, but as obnoxious as the people are, it is very addicting. I tend to skip the Jersey Shore and Kardashian clones and steer more towards the programs where people are trying to accomplish something like being the next big mma fighter or the best make-up artist ever. At least those guys are working to something and not just trying to get into the pants of a walking hepatitis c factory. On a side note, I met the first winner of Project Runway a year ago who admitted to me that the whole thing never helped his career and wound up being a waste of time. Surprise, surprise!
However, there is a new show on the horizon that looks a tad promising. Created by none other than Kevin Smith, Comic Book Men focuses on the employees and customers of his comic book shop.
