    Americans struggle through a day in the recession

    Instead of the usual bullsh*t we get, cops, drug addicts and so forth, you'd think these stories would be more interesting and perhaps even helpful to the victims ?

    My favorite was the couple that had $ 600K in debt and the banks just kept sending them free credit cards, while they kited from one to pay off another ?

    It could be called, "America Uncovered: Bankruptcy & Foreclosure" ?

    Reality shows?

    How about chess? With People like Paris Hilton vs Hulk Hogan? Too subtle?

    No thank you. I have no desire to watch other peoples misery on television. that's one of the main reasons I don't watch The Bachelor, The Bachelorette or other shows of that ilk.

    Most sports have a close season. How about the same for reality shows- a month without any?

    Exactly why I don't watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Giving people a house they can't afford the property tax on, real smart. If you can't afford to fix up your house how you gonna afford 5x the property taxes.

    How about a reality show where guys start out as skinny and build up to a great body. Biggest Gainer. Or "The Making Of", a show based on the creations of documentaries or big screen movies. What ever happened to Justin Timberlakes show, I saw one preview of it and nothing since, it must be on cable and I can't get it.
