It is that time of year again where the reality television shows take over and feed us mind numbing nonsense. However, we continue to buy into it and watch these annoying shows and the problem is that, even though EVERYBODY claims to be a hater, we all love them.
How Celebrity Big Brother was ever allowed to be made again is beyond me. It has clearly run its course and is lacking of any creditable celebrities but there is something strangely appealing about being sat on your sofa, watching people sat on a sofa. It just doesn’t make sense.
It was recently revealed that the viewing figures foe Celebrity Big Brother were at an all time low of just 2.2m but this low for the show is actually a high for Channel 5, so the show isn’t likely to stop anytime soon. Although, with the figures continually dropping, there could be cause for concern.
Then there is The X Factor. A show which aims to find the next big vocal talent in the country. The ironic thing is, that the best part of the show is seeing the worst singers in the country. However, by the time you have seen all the bad ones, you have your favourite good one and feel the need to continue watching in support.
The X Factor returned to ITV on Saturday night and has shown no signs of slowing down, after hitting an average of 11.3m viewers and peaking at an incredible 12.6m. The show has been a hit year on year and the contestants from the show continue to dominate the UK music charts.
As you can probably tell, I have a very love hate relationship with reality TV shows. I hate what they stand for and they are just full of pure nonsense. However, I cannot help but watch these shows and, as I love to moan, and these shows certainly make me do that, I love to watch them. Arriba!!
