Ok surfing the net I came across this article. There are two new reality series coming out this fall. One on ABC called “Wife Swap”, and the other on Fox called “Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy”. Although the networks are claiming the shows are not as racy as the title implies, this still sounds like a very, very, bad idea. Of course this is all coming from someone who never really understood the whole reality tv thing. I mean come on, as I heard one comedian say:
“Reality is actually a bunch of fat, lazy americans sitting on their couch with a beer watching these stupid shows, now lets see a reality show about that and see how the ratings do.”
I think this is yet another nice indicator of the moral decay of our society. With this trajectory, we are only one step away from being as racy as the title sounds.
