Out of my boredon I watched this show and I thought it was so funny.

I only laughed at the people who couldn't sing and dance. I hate these kind of shows really, I just hope they stop showing them.

When the first one came out everybody was into HearSay now they sucked! Pop idol all the girls were screaming for Will and Garthe. I just can't stand Gates.

god what going to happen next on this one?

Ahem:
Popstars sucks.
Making the Band sucks.
American Idol sucks.
They are all a travesty to music. Never trust any singer or band where you cannot see who is playing the music.

All those American Idol shows are is teen brainwashing to buy Gap shirts and to buy Pop Rock/Bubble gum albums.

As if Popstars and Pop Idol wasn't enough, now we have another crappy commercialised show, and spin offs are even worse, if that was possible wink It shouldn't bother me at all because I simply don't watch it, but despite that, it still manages to pollute my mind through the spoon fed rivers in society. I hear it on the radio while I'm at work, other people talking about it on TV, from my parents, my hairdresser, in magazines, and the hype of it all, which is basically all it is. It's almost impossible to escape it, unless you live under a rock or something. When I recently went to America it was great to escape all the Will Young and Gareth Gates crap, but unfortunately I had to endure something else, American Idol eek

All the Popstar type shows are cruel. Take this kids one for example.

They have a couple of young adults competing for a presenting job. They make them do stupid tasks. Then, when it's time for one to get kicked out, they assemble them in a room. The judges call the host on a mobile phone and ask for one of the hopefuls. The poor person goes to the judges, who then tell them that they are in fact staying. But they have to go tell another contestant to leave. When this is done, they interview the kicked out one.

And to top it all off, they get the kicked out person on the show the next day to humiliate themselves further. It's sickening the cruelty shown to these people whose drerams have just been shattered!

I think it is quite ironic that it is the losers who usually do best.

Popstars:
Hear'say had two number 1's and a #1 album (I think). Just a year on and they are struggling to find people to go to their concerts and rushed out their second album.
Meanwhile the five who didn't make it formed Liberty X, and after waiting months before releasing anything recently had a #1 with Just A Little Bit (which actually sucks, but oh well)

Pop Idol
Will the winner had two #1s, both covers and set a new record for records sold in a week.
Gareth, the runner up, also got a deal with the record company behind this, but they favoured him and have put most of their promotion into his work.
Darius was offered a deal with the record company, but he turned them down, wrote his own material, and has become one of the top loved stars.
Ironically, Will realises that he has been screwed despite being the winner of the show and has demanded to write his own material. I actually hope he does well.
nixon!

I hope tv becomes soon unreal, because these reality tv shows are pissing me off... They don't make any sense, I don't like watch some stupid teenage girls which sings badly. They haven't got any talent actually, there are some girls who has talent. Nude popstars would be great!! p.s: hentai rocks!

They're getting booed offstage apparantly. They went away for several blissful months but came back thinking that the problem would go away. It didn't, so they're probably on the verge of not splitting up, but quietly and discreetly disbanding. One of the girls in the band got booed at her wedding as well, which I think is going slightly too far.

I remember one of the first of these shows, it wasn't a competition, just a bunch of students living in a house paid for by the BBC, it was taken of the air when students at another university started a club dedicated to hating one of the people on it, they also got a brick through the window as I recall  laff

CNN and Cops: now those are true reality shows.  cool

I don't get why these shows want to push pop stars and rock bands so bad. America's a huge melting pot of personal tastes.

Well, Juliet, I agree that it is funny to take the piss out of the contestants, but I also agree that the show is a big bag of wank.

next: Popstars - The Rejects!

I heard a discussion on the radio about it recently, and they reckon reality TV will go over the edge one day, and probably someone will actually die as part of the 'entertainment'.
Also there were ideas for a show where people are locked up and the aim is to catch diseases off each other. Yes, I know what you're thinking, they _should_ combine that with Pop Idol.

I like The Mole, but they've had programmes like that for years, and assault-course/mental game shows were never described as 'reality TV' before, were they?

All this reality TV talk reminds me of 'The Running Man'. I hope reality TV never goes that far in the future.

It'd be cool if they started 'Rockstars' - you'd probably end up with a load of Chad Kroeger wannabees, but at least you'd get a laugh out of it.  Pornstars also sounds like a good idea - just a shame that Channel 5 in the UK has decided to go upmarket ...there's always Sky 1 though
BTW read in the paper yesterday that if Hear'say don't make number 1 with their next single, they're history ...

Bye then

I have to agree with my good friend, Dadbot here.

Hear'say's chances are not good.  The auditions for Kim "saucy mother of two" Marsh's replacement was a publicity scam/shambles.  Gotta feel sorry for them, as it's the managements fault.

Still I think that Myleene has big things in front of her!  flirt

And you have to give credit to Darius, he knows the value of copyright, and knows that he doesn't want to get stiffed by BMG and Cowell is a snake!

It's scary to know that 'Running Man', as farfetched as it may be, now seems possible. How would reality shows (de)evolve in 20 years from now?
