There are a lot of television shows on these days that involve basic jobs such as towing, plumbing, pawning ... the list goes on. I've watched quite a few of these in my free time and I've come to the obvious conclusion that most if not all of them are extremely scripted and rather annoying at that. Don't get me wrong, they are entertaining, but only to a certain extent. If the show doesn't have any element of realism, I just can't watch it.
Which 'reality' television shows do you watch, and what is your overall opinion of them? Do you find any of them entertaining, or do you just watch them to see how stupid they are? How exactly do you feel that they impact television overall?
