    ..."reality shows" don't seem to be representative of much of anything.  The participants in these shows are the kinds of folks who are either desperate to become famous in the worst possible way, or they're wannabe actors/actresses who see the exposure on these shows as a way to jump start their careers.

    And in the fractionalized world of modern television, a handful of millions of viewers can make these awful programs into hits.  The 5 or 6 million people who watch something like "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has to be placed in the context that we're a country of over 300 million people.
