Reality shows waning in popularity


According to the scribbling elves at the NYT, the reality TV craze is starting to run out of steam. This should come to the surprise of no one, though like any genre there’s some actual decent content and a whole lotta crap. Apparently the Martha Stewart version of the Apprentice is really doing poorly, which I find odd since it’s much more entertaining than the original Trump version. Stewart’s business lends itself to a wide spectrum of bitchiness, wheras Trump’s show is essentially just a bunch of ruthless MBA types.
