Humor in Television

Y'all already know I'm a Reality TV junkie. Some of the shows I just like, and others I really get into them.

My favorite summer TV show is Big Brother. This summer is season 15, and it's proving to be one of my favorites. The drama is endless, and the competitions are hilarious — where in the world do they come up with these ideas. If any of you are watching this season, too... I'm really hoping they vote Aaryn off this week. Her comments about everybody in the house has just about turned all of American against her. I can tell you that if I could vote... she'd have my vote to be evicted. However, I am proud to see that they are airing Howard from Hattiesburg, Mississippi praying with other cast members. And I'm stoked it comes on three times during the week!

This past weekend we watched Catfish for the first time. Wow is all I can say. People really do this? Why would someone change their photo and name just to date someone. I just don't get it. And of course we only watched one episode, so we might not have the full gist of the show.

After that show was over... we saw a preview for another show (who knew MTV had some entertaining shows these days)... Ridiculousness. I don't think we have stopped laughing since we started watching it. Why is it so funny to watch other people do stupid things, and sometimes even get hurt. Not to the point that they are seriously hurt, but still... you can't tell me you haven't laughed when you've seen something like that on tv, too. Especially the ABC show, Wipeout.

One of the ones we saw this weekend was called Pudding Surprise. Y'all I don't think I have ever laughed so hard. Forgive all the beeping out of bad language, but I had to give y'all a laugh today.

    I like Ridiculousness. I've only seen it once, but it was funny. I've never ever seen BB, though it makes me feel like a bad blogger. :)

    I like America's Got Talent!

  2. I'm a sucker for the more manly type reality shows like Tattoo Nightmare, Bar Rescue, Overhaulin, Pawn Stars, American Pickers... Although I'm not really sure they fall under the "reality show" category.

    Ive never seen any of the shows you mentioned!

  3. Well you already know I love me some BB!

    Ridiculousness - I have seen. Hubs watches when he sees it on. I thought it was funny but not my cup of tea!

  4. I am loving Big Brother this season and ugh, Aaryn is driving me CRAZY!!! That whole comment about when you're mean to people and karma comes around which is why those people are on slop just angered me... she's the jerk! I can't stand her... I do love Howie though and his Mississippi roots and his southern hospitality and genuine care for others! Makes me proud. I do hate how he lied to Helen though, but I think he's just trying to play the game and honestly, the alliance is no more, so it shouldn't even be a big deal.
