It's no secret that I despise reality television, so it's about time "The Joe Schmo Show" came around. It's a hilarious send up of the genre, although I wonder if anyone would be the wiser had the fa?ade had been kept from the audience. The actors are dead on in their representations of generic stereotypes, and the collectable plate gag for kicking people out is classic.

Sounds amusing. What channel and when is it on?

It's on Spike TV. They're replaying the first episode this Sunday at 9:00 EST, otherwise, it's on Tuesdays at 9:00 EST.

Thanks. I'll see if I can't catch it.

I'll tune in, too. I am a sucker for the two reality shows "Big Brother 4" and "Cupid," though--not that I couldn't live without them. And what about Survivor 7!?" UGGGHHH. Yes, for the most part, reality TV does indeed, suck.

My wife got me hooked on Joe Millionaire while it was on, and I watched the first two seasons of MTV's The Real World. I've also seen two or three episodes of The Amazing Race. Oh, the shame.

Quite longish, but very entertaining. I thought that it was definitely funny that the guy fell for all of the stuff, and that the actors were hysterical. I'll tune in today just to see what's next.
