Reality TV

Thank heavens So You Think You Can Dance returns this Thursday. Of all the too many reality shows on television these days, this is the best. I still can't believe the number of viewers who would rather watch reality than fiction. When I buzz through the listing of shows on prime time, I see too many Dancing Stars, too many Losers both big and small, way too many Apprentices and Real Housewives of countless cities, countless Survivors and Amazing Races, too many Bachelors and Bachelorettes, too many Cooks and Chefs and Undercover Bosses, too many hours of Minute to Win It. And even the dramas are too similar: a saturation of lawyers, cops and robbers, doctors and body choppers. What we need is another great Western or Musical Variety show. Where are you when we need you, Rowdy, Little Joe, Matt Dillon? Where are you, Dinah, Judy, Carol? And please don't say we could always have Justin or Britney or Lady Gaga. Yuck! It just wouldn't be the same.
