There’s Still Hope!
There has to be others like me out there. People who are not fans of so-called “Reality” TV shows. It seems like there everywhere, up and down the TV dial (oh wait, there isn’t a dial anymore…well, you know what I mean.
Well according to our friends at the Associated Press, a network has heard the people and mercifully stopped something that sounded abysmal. Now, if the ‘powers that be’ can go to work on the disaster that is whatever the Pete Rose “Reality” thing is, then drop anything that has to do with the word “Kardashian”, and put the “Housewives of Wherever They’re From” out of their misery. Oh, and whoever that Honey Boo Boo deal is, enough. I know, there’s more….there is so many more. But at least it’s a start.
I know, I know…geez Randy, you’re really an old coot, aren’t you? Granted. True. Yes.
Now how about a Western or two? And a decent variety show would be nice. Carol Burnett available? She’s how old? Really? Hmm..doesn’t seem that long.
(AP) – Oxygen Media has pulled the plug on “All My Babies’ Mamas,” a reality special the network was developing about a musician who has fathered 11 children with 10 different mothers.
The network offered no reason for curtailing the project. In a statement issued Tuesday, Oxygen said that after reviewing the show’s casting the decision was made “not to move forward.”
The one-hour project would have featured Atlanta rap artist Shawty Lo, his children and their mothers.
“All My Babies’ Mamas” was met with controversy after Oxygen announced it last month. At least one petition that called for Oxygen to shut it down has collected more than 37,000 signatures. The Parents Television Council called the concept “grotesquely irresponsible and exploitive.
In its statement, Oxygen promised to continue to develop “compelling content.”
