There's lots of news lately about Sarah Jessica Parker producing a new reality TV show, "American Artist" (working title), which is a series for artists that compete each other for a grand prize. Think Project Runway, except it's about art.
We all knew this type of show was coming, but I never expected Sarah Jessica Parker to be producing it. For a change, I'm not excited about this show though. Maybe I'm the only one that's not so enthusiastic about it. The funny thing is, my problem is not even about the show. It's just that there's so much reality TV these days, that I have become so sick of it! I still have my favorites that I like to watch, but hasn't reality TV gone way too far?
Coming back from 4 years of living in Japan, I was eager to turn on the tube and see what's on. Japanese TV has lots of dramas and game shows, but I really wanted to watch American sitcoms. I come back, just a week ago, and I'm disappointed because I expected something different. Every channel I flip to is airing something to do with reality.
Remember back in the 90's when Full House and The Cosby Show were a big hit and comedy dominated TV? Everything seemed to be so simple and now it's all about being famous in a certain industry. I sometimes wish it was like the old times, when people weren't so worried about how to get on TV.
