Remember when reality tv used to be unique and cool? Now it seems like reality shows are as ubiquitous as crappy infomercials on late-night tv, and most of them suck just as much. IMO reality TV was a good idea gone terribly wrong, kind of like screwing up an apple cider recipe.
There is some reality tv programming that has withstood the test of time (Cops and American Idol come to mind). But there have been far more shows that have been, frankly, just trash: washed-up celebrity live-ins, date-this-loser competitions, Big Brother, and anything on MTV What do you think have been the worst reality tv shows? Was there a moment it turned, or "jumped the shark" a la Happy Days, so to speak?
