What a horrible idea

You only saw the ad - consider yourself lucky. I saw part of an episode and got so angry, I nearly busted a blood vessel. The show is such dreck and the contestants are vile people. How I long for narrative TV shows and the quick death of reality TV.

Is that too melodramatic?! ;) But, I really hate this show.

A vile wanna be producer!!!???? The devil you say! How can this be! Someone MUST alert the media or should I say the vile media....oh wait, they already did, Entertainment weekly. :D Oh BTW I think with shows like this, reality TV's finally decided to commit suicide so you and I and ALL OF US may be in luck! <_<

The producer of the last project I worked on really enjoys it. Not for its entertainment value though...don't really know what else there is to take from it.

Anyone who watches reality TV but does not watch 30 Rock is lost on a raft. 30 Rock is one of the best written comedies in the history of television.

I seriously was thinking about this last night, and the only two real quality sitcoms that came to mind were from NBC's Thursday night lineup. The Office and 30 Rock.

I just saw an ad for American Express - it was a parody of the "On the Lot/Producer" ads. I laughed.
