Default Did ya notice that all the shows on TruTV are fake?

After several attempts to get my "reality" TV fix from TruTV I've come to realize that pretty much all the shows specifically made for TruTV are BS. They are either completely made up or really bad reenactments. How lame is that? Does anybody actually enjoy that crap?

It's kind of like Fixed News "No Spin Zone" or those e-mails you get that specifically say "This is not a scam".

Disappointed...

Just like MTV doesn't play music and I see where now the Cartoon Network has some live action programming.

Yea, but the Daily Show is was it is. Clearly TruTV is getting desperate for more "junk food for the brain". I tried to watch "Ma's Roadhouse" thinking it might be interesting and it sort of was until they got the "Health Inspector" drunk and acting like an idiot. Then I started looking up TruTV on the innertubes and low and behold, lot's of others are complaining about their BS "shows".

It's kind of entertaining to watch real people acting like idiots candidly, but watching actors trying to act like people acting like idiots on a made up show...not so much.

I love police chase shows (COPS of course, Hot Pursuit, World's ______est Police Chases, etc.). Smoking Gun's pretty funny too, and the late-night stuff like Forensic Files, The Investigators, and Masterminds is good viewing.

The majority else on truTV I could do without. Right after they changed from CourtTV a lot of the new programming was great, but it's been all downhill from there.

I like the word play, "FIXED" news. haha. That part that isn't funny is that people only call out one news organization as being bias. Only one. Now that is beyond funny, to the point of sad.

Nothing on television is real, nothing.

Everthing is staged, edited, censored, dramatized, and advertised.

TV is supposed to "entertain" you just enough to satisfy you, before you complain that there are too many advertisements.

Here's a YouTube video that explains how to Proxy to a specific country, so you can view the above video (in UK). I learned something today!

Rehab is a great show! Who doesn't like a little drama and lots of hotties in bikinis at the pool?
