Is MTV's My Super Sweet 16 the most disgusting show on TV?



Each episode is the same. Whiny, spoiled, self-centered rich brat walks all over her parents, who, of course, still throw their pretty little princess a ridiculously expensive Sweet Sixteen party. It's an unabashed celebration of excess and vanity that just goes to show: beauty, popularity, and temper tantrums are the keys to getting what you want in life.

Does MTV even count as TV anymore?

I was only able to sit through a quarter of an episode but, yes, Michael, you're absolutely right about the subjects being disgusting. (Danny's question is valid too -- MTV is only really television on a rudimentary level, IMO. Anybody remember the good ole days of MTV?) But I got the impression that the show, from what I saw during the time I could tolerate it, is slyly holding these spoiled little girls in a bad (or possibly accurate?) light. MSS16 strikes me as the kind of program that is often referred to as "mean reality." I wouldn't say that makes it more virtuous or palatable, but, like Jerry Springer, I think the viewer is intended to sort of despise the people on this show.

I agree its the dumbest show on TV and the fact that they think what they are doing is fine is what makes it worse.
