Top 5 Worst New Reality TV Shows of 2003
Opinions by Shawn McKenzie 03/10/2004
I don't see every single show on every single channel, but I do watch more TV than most, so I think I'm fairly credible on what is bad. I especially try to catch every new show, even new reality shows, and some of those reality shows just stunk. Some of the shows on my list have been cancelled already (or are just not coming back), but they all premiered in the calendar year of 2003. You may disagree with my choices, and that's fine, but know what I like. See what you think.
5. “Are You Hot?”-I have to give this show one bit of credit…it didn’t lie to us. This show was only concerned if you were good looking or not. The problem is that the concept quickly got old. The “American Idol” concept may work for music, dating, comedy, and fashion, but just judging on good looks can get boring.
3. “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!”-I understand why they did this show. It was a hit in England, “The Surreal Life” and “Celebrity Mole” had set a precedent that people liked seeing B-list actors being tortured, and “Survivor” was still a top 10 hit. What went wrong? Maybe it was because ABC did what they always do when they want to quickly kill a show…play it several times a week until people are sick of it. That worked with “Who Wants to be a Millionaire,” right?
