The Bachelor is the new Real World

Once upon a time, MTV’s the Real World was a societal and pop culture icon.  Then it turned into a sloppy, drunk, orgy for any bottom feeder trying to snatch their 15-minutes of fame.

IMDB.com tells me the show is now in it’s 23rd season in our nation’s capital.  How this has happened, baffles me to no end.  The last good season I can remember was Season 9: New Orleans and that’s partly because I was in love with Danny.  Nevertheless, the show has continued and apparently has an audience with nothing better to do with their time.

This brings me to the Bachelor on ABC.  Another show that might have been good once with slightly desperate women bidding for the attention of the re-incarnation of Ken Barbie.  Now we have slutty, pathetic and flat out insulting represenatations of women throwing themselves at a guy they won’t end up marrying anyways.

So to Jake the Pilot and ABC: bleep off.  You’re no American Hero.

Claire Danes and Jared Leto had a reunion the other day at some celebrity schmoozefest in London.  This makes me happy.  Except for Leto’s hair.

Now I just hope Jimmy Fallon’s attempts at a Saved by the Bell reunion succeed.

No I don’t count the People Magazine shoot as a reunion.  Screech and Mr. Belding weren’t even there!

I probably should be ashamed to say so, but I still can’t get enough of the Tiger Woods drama.  I’ve been known to stand in line at the supermarket browsing for the latest scoop (or made up BS, you be the judge) about the whole debacle since his little car accident turned into a major event.

In the spirit of his greatly anticipated press conference/public statement last Friday let’s talk about the most patheticaly exectued public apologies from the past year or so.

1) Governor Sanford: The hiking trip that actually wasn’t, followed by the press conference, the emails and the gracefully pissed off wife.

2) Mark McGwire: Hulk like muscles.  Single season home run leader.  Lying under oath.  Forced apology at the hands of Bob Costas.  At least it got him a job.

3) U.S. Senator Ensign: I’m a family man supporting high morals and family values.  Oh wait.

4) Blagojevich: Did he actually apologize?  Who cares.  It’s all about the hair.

5) New York State Government: New Yorkers are still waiting for the apology.  In the meantime we have this.

I don’t know about you folks, but I am extremely excited for the the 2010 Winter Olympics that started last Friday in Vancouver.

Some people are worried the unusually warm weather in Vancouver will impact the games.  But I’m more concerned with the lycra ski suits, Apolo Anton Ohno’s soul patch, the Flying Tomato’s attempts at a Double McTwist 1260 after slamming his face against the halfpipe in the Winter X Games and the fabulously bedazzled figure skating costumes of Johnny Weir.

For those who have been living under a rock (or maybe choosing to ignore the hype) for the past few days, the final season of “Lost” premiered Tuesday night on ABC. 

I feel like I’m stranded on my own deserted island.  All these people are talking, writing, emailing, twittering, you name it about the season premiere.  Any show that inspires people to post video responses to Youtube within minutes, must be good, right?

So in the name of my shame, here are three shows I wish I watched.
