TV's New Reality
The midseason reality shows are arriving this week, thanks to the writers' strike. Are you watching any of them? Or just waiting until "American Idol" premieres Jan. 15?
"The Celebrity Apprentice" premieres 9 p.m. today. "1 vs 100" returns Friday, along with Carson Kressley'ss "How To Look Good Naked" new reality series at 9 p.m. Friday on Lifetime.
NBC's "American Gladiators" debuts Sunday, and "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" starts Monday on ABC.
Do any of these remotely interest you?
How about Fox's "Moment of Truth" (Jan. 23), in which contestants answer questions while hooked to a lie detector?
Or MyNetworkTV (Channel 64) bringing back "Paradise Hotel," with 11 singles at a resort hotel on Feb. 4? This time around, after the 9 p.m. national prime-time network telecast, a TV-MA version will air 1 a.m. that night on the Fox Reality Channel.
And on Monday, Feb. 18, the proud Peacock network delivers "The Baby Borrowers." Teen-age couples (ages 18-20) will set up home, get a job, and become parents to babies, toddlers, then preteens, teens and senior citizens in the span of three weeks. Can't wait to see that one?Enjoy "Law & Order" while it lasts, and the return of "Lost" on Jan. 31. Soon we'll see another "Big Brother," "Survivor" and "Dancing With The Stars."
So tell me if you're watching any of the new reality shows, or plan to, and what you think of them...
