I like American Idol (after the top dozen or two are selected), because I enjoy the music and I think Simon Cowell provides excellent mini-critiques.

Although they may not qualify as Reality TV, I also HouseHunters and sometimes watch other HGTV shows, and I enjoy watching the news and the History Channel. Now THAT is reality!

Otherwise, I don't really watch reality TV.

Only thing I've watched with regularity was survivor, and I gave up on that two seasons ago. It just got too repetitive. There also never seemed to be someone that I really liked or hated.

My wife watches a bunch of them.

So You Think You Can Dance rules!

I love this show. I've been watching it since the first season. I've always loved all kinds of dance and this is so much fun - to get to watch (for free) such talented dancers and choreographers doing this original stuff week after week is great. On the other hand, I find Dancing with the Stars to be lame because the celebs aren't trained dancers. I watched it once or twice, then turned it off because the talent level just wasn't there.

Oh and I usually can't stand the bickering between the teams, but I like watching the Amazing Race just to see the different places they go to. Luckily, I have Tivo so I can skip all the talking and just watch the travel parts.

Used to watch 60 Minutes long ago; didn't think of it as a 'reality show'.

American Idol (Got hooked along with the who state when a local girl made the top 12)

On the Lot: A lousy show, but I am impressed by how talented some of the directors are making a good 3 minute movie in a few days, is tough.

Heck, I think it's reality TV here in my home town....up north! Of course, after sitting downtown in the park 'people watching', I think I've located the guest pool for the 'Jerry Springer Show'.

I'm rooting for Sabra. If she makes the final four, I may even actually vote. She's amazing. Considering that she's only been dancing for 4 years, she got incredible raw talent - a true natural.

isn't ironic that a show trying to find the next great director - totally sucked?

the host sucks, the format sucks, and there are too many contestants...i think there is talent there but it got lost in the suckiness of the show. i kept recording it, but just gave up on it.

I'll watch Idol or Amazing Race if I happen to be home (not very often). I watched the first season of Survivor but haven't seen it since.

Does The Dog Whisperer qualify? I love that show even though I have never owned a dog (I'm a cat person).
