Ken and I watch a couple of reality shows: "American Idol" and "The Apprentice." Ken will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's it. The explosion of reality TV shows recently is pretty disgusting, and I think we've reached a new nadir with "The Moment of Truth."
We saw a few minutes of it the first night it aired, and we were appalled. From what we've seen of the commercials, it's gotten even worse since the debut. Questions about infidelities, lies, cheating, stealing...I'm waiting for one about bestiality! And what is even worse is that people go on this show voluntarily, and their spouses or significant others are right there in the audience, listening to and watching these people make fools of themselves. Have we become so money-hungry that we subject not only ourselves, but our loved ones, to psychological torture in order to score some major bucks? Show some dignity, for God's sake. I shouldn't be surprised, I suppose. The lure of money can make the lame walk, the mute speak, and apparently the idiotic perform.
