Hello GS friends, today I will be ranting on how much I hate MTV and it's dumbass reality shows. Before we get to the shows now I'm gonna talk about the old MTV showsthat were at least watchable. According to MTV, the first reality show is called The Real World.
Due to HTML issues I was not able to post any pictures... -_-
The Real World is about 7 strangers that live in a place and work together while their lives are being taped (in case you didn't know..). It started back in 1992 and it still has not ended to this day. However nowadays The Real World seems to be really lame and fake, back then it was "real" and the people did not start drama for the sake of it.
Next was Road Rules (debuted in 1995), I don't know much about the show myself since I never really seen any episodes but Ido know the people that are in this show complete missions and it did have some good people that I seen a different show. By the way this show had ended in 2007 I believe.
It was called the Real World/Road Rules Challenge, this is actually one of my favorite shows on MTV. It shows some people from the Real World and Road Rules to compete for money and prizes, during each episode at least 1 or 2 people are eliminated from the game and go home empty handed. Today it still has not ended but there had been some changes with the show, it's now called "The Challenge" and in 2006 since most competitors from Road Rules don't compete as much as they used to anymore, they brought in "Fresh Meat" meaning people who never partook in any show. It's not as good as it used to be withsome of the new people but I still watch it. There are more old reality shows on MTV but for the sake of this blog, I might as well just get to the damn point already.
Now let's move on to why I hate MTV now. EDIT: I wanted to post pictures but I kept getting the HTML error...
Jersey Shore. What is terrible about it? Why do I hate it? Every single thing is terrible about this show, I never watched a FULL episode of this since it was just so fxcking stupid and I'm glad that I didn't. I mean come on, look at how pathetic they look, they are a bunch of "adults" who act like little kids that drink, have sex, start pointless drama, dumb fights, and you see where I am going with this. This sh!t is not entertaining and MTV calling it a reality show is beyond me, "real" people work, pay mortage, pay bills, go to school, etc. The sad thing is that some of my friends actually like this show but when I talk to them about those shows I mentioned earlier in this blog, they know NOTHING about them except maybe a little of The Real World but that's it. I have yet to find another person in my high school that does somehow manage to watch the old MTV shows.
Two other shows, Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant. Oh my fxcking god... I also hate these damn shows. These shows are about teen girls that make dumbass decisions in their lives like of course getting pregnant. Okay what the fxck, we people don't really give two fxcks about how "hard" it is to be pregnant at a young age, this is stuff that shouldn't be aired on television,so MTV why do you even bother? "Well it could teach teens a lesson or two about what girls shouldn't do." No, just no it's making worse. It's not onlyannoying but I do have a few friends that are girls that do watch this sh!t and they actually did get pregnant like these b*tches and yes these are girls that are still in high school or barely starting. I know it's their lives and all, I know I am aware but why does MTV have to air this? Whatever reason it may be, it is not impacting teens in any good ways and this is what most of them watch. I'm very lucky that I'm not part of those teens who do watch these kind of shows, in fact I'm almost an adult anyway.
All in all, I hate MTV for what they have done, they have also gotten rid of most music videos and such in case you have seen this channel. The only other show that I do watch on MTV now is Beavis and Butt-head.
I used to watch it when I was younger and to this day it still makes me laugh and it's quite entertaining. They didn't ruin anything IMO, another thing is that the animation has somewhat improved which is a plus.
That's all I gotta say about this channel and I hope no one was offended but I like sharing my thoughts you know? So that's it for this rant. I'll see you all around the site. :)
