Making television is hard, say the people who who make television. But they're not always wrong! Coming up with new ideas for scripted half-hour comedies and full hour dramas is difficult, because every story has been since about 400 A.D. Thus, the creation of a new kind of television was necessary. A better kind of television, one that strove to tell human stories of real people trying to- HAHAHAHA just joking, they made garbage reality television. This junk you can crank out no problem. In fact, it's so easy to make that here are 7 Reality Shows Waiting To Happen:
Look At This Crappy Kid!
Every week, LATK! follows the mis-adventures of a the kid you love to hate, excluding the part about "love". Tantrums, crying fits, and arrogance that didn't seem possible coming from a five-year old, this show has it all!
Look At This Crappy Parent!
The exact same show as above, except it follows around that kid's horrible parent/guardian.
Jeff Freally, owner of over 3000 dvds, sits and just sort of quietly talks about his collection. Ranging from complaints about Blockbuster not selling their used dvds in the original jewel cases, to complaints about the way blu-ray looks "too realistic", the fun never stops with this wacky character!
The Real Transformers
Cashing on the success of the "Transformers" film franchise, this series follows the adventures of machines that, according to Wikipedia, "transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another through inductively coupled conductors—the transformer's coils. A varying current in the first or primarywinding creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer's core and thus a varying magnetic field through the secondary winding. This varying magnetic field induces a varyingelectromotive force (EMF), or "voltage", in the secondary winding. This effect is called inductive coupling." Each episode also features a sise story about the men who repair these noble robots.
Help! I’m A Serial Killer
In the vein of uplifting home makeover shows like "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" comes this show featuring psychologists Barb and Tom, who provide a "makeover" to the "homes" (brains) of people with some bad habits, namely murdering people. Sit down with a nice Chianti and some Fava beans, you won't want to miss this one!
