Television scourge part one — reality tv

This topic isn’t even worth blogging about, but here I am doing it. I’ll just add two words to the argument — Running Man.

And this bit from a NYT article:

But with no union representation, participants on reality series are not covered by Hollywood workplace rules governing meal breaks, minimum time off between shoots or even minimum wages. Most of them, in fact, receive little to no pay for their work.

I’m no fan of unions, but the allure of fame and “gettin’ on the teevee” leads to abject stupidity and the willingness to amazing levels of abasement.
