I HATE REALITY TV, BUT...
THIS IS A GOOD SHOW
I didn't want to watch this show, but my wife made me and I thank her for it.
I loathe Reality TV. I've got no time for it. I generally watch TV to escape reality. You want reality TV? Come to my house in a few weeks when my wife and I are trying to raise 3 kids under 3, with my sorry self getting up for work at 2:30 in the morning.
That's reality... not being whisked off to a desert island to compete with other self-absorbed "actors" for a million dollars.
Okay that said, Last Comic Standing is a reality TV show worth watching. It was on one night, and my wife had the remote. So I watched, and loved it.
It's refreshing in this sense... the creators don't waste your time with a lot of dribble about the personal lives of these contestants. They don't overemphasize the roll of the hosts. The only drama is in the selection process for who makes the next round. In the time that I've watched... there's been no crying. It's all about the comedy.
Some of the stand-ups are great. Some were terrible. It's just a chance to see a lot of funny people doing there thing. I'm not trying to push NBC programming on any of you. I'm just saying give it a shot. You'll like it.
