Bring on the reality

by Paul William Tenny

For people who like reality programming - by the ratings shows like Dancing With The Stars get I'd say that's a whole lot of you - you're in for a big surprise come January when all the scripted shows start running out of new episodes to air. Of course there will be some exceptions, like The Sarah Connor Chronicles that Fox held back for whatever reason, and a short run of new Jericho episodes on CBS, but other than that, what NBC has planned is precisely what all the other networks have in store for you after the Superbowl.

Shrugging your shoulders at a plate full of reality is going to haunt you when you're sitting there staring it directly in the face, and the face staring back at you belongs to an American Gladiator. Among the replacements are: The Biggest Loser, 1 vs. 100, The Celebrity Apprentice, Amnesia, The Baby Borrowers (don't ask), and My Dad is Better Than Your Dad.

I don't know about any of you, but January sounds like a mighty fine time to catch up on some shows on DVD that I never made time for. Lost marathon, anyone?
