Who gives a shit?
The hype over this programme and others of reality ilk is purely to hide what is really happening to the USA. To hide how the country is being screwed by politicians and bankers.
If Americans watched the news (not Faux) they would find out how the country is being ripped form under their feet like an old carpet.
“Did you watch American Idol?”
“Oh yeah, great show.”
“Do you know what’s happening to the American Constitution?”
“The American Constitution.”
“Is that a new show coming on?”
