No way CBS didn't know exactly what the contestants were like.  It's all about the casting and the controversy to get viewers in their seats.

I just learned that Big Brother was still a thing. Still ain't gonna watch it, though.

Heaven forbid they should put real people on a reality show.

Under the Dome is pretty good. Very good for a summer show.

Honestly, how can white people have a problem with Asians? The guys are generally pretty mellow and the women are awesome. I don't see the problem.

I'm so glad that the writer cited no examples.

The only answer I can give you, is we're stupid as species. We appear to never learn and collectively we repeat the same damn mistakes generation after generation. I'm talking all races, everyone's on that list.

tmz is reporting on it, the cute blonde told an asian "housemate" to shut up and go make some rice.  She also told another housemate to be careful what they say in the dark because the black housemate could be hiding in there and nobody would know it.  If the second one was a joke it would be kinda funny, especially if it wasn't a white chick telling it.

The first season was kinda interesting, but then the attention whores came out of the woodwork for the subsequent seasons, hoping to get famous.

Some of it's pretty bad. A lot of gay bashing too.

Well that tears it. I'm definitely gonna have to tune in now. Well played, CBS marketing whores, well played.

GinaMarie said Candice "gets that farkin' blackness," referring to Candice's reaction to something that happened in the game.

Was she talking about that head bob thing they do? I call it the Hoochie Mamma. My wife does it when she gets mad. I laugh, she get's even more angry. I can't help it.

The hot blonde, Aaryn?, has been dropped by her modeling agency according to TMZ. That's going to be a shock to her when she gets out.

I can't believe these idiots don't realize that every conversation they have is being monitored, recorded, and transcribed by numerous websites.

Haha, yeah, her new intenet nickname is Aryan, of course.

So you mean to tell me that people who choose to be on a reality show, and have the ability to leave their lives behind for months to be on a reality show might not be that smart?

CBS needs to air all of this on the actual show, not just the live feeds, let America see how these people really are

I hope when Aryan gets evicted that Julie Chen says, "Here, want a bowl of rice?"

In related news, average Americans are appealing to average Americans, and move a shiat-ton of salty snacks.

Unlike the government, TV producers are obliged to have mastery of counting. Drama is expensive. Drama as played by non-unionized, non-actors that only requires blocking notes and a heavy editing commitment is not expensive. It's the Pinterest of programming and suits precisely the summer viewing demographic.

Had reality TV not been invented, it would be necessary to do so in today's splintered, dying-off audience for network TV fare.

I think his son was on last season, but call up Sid. Power bombs for the whole lot of 'em. Work stiff, and be careful on your legs, okay?

Don't be. Before bed, I'll watch some of the After Dark stuff, and man are those people bored out of their minds.

It seems pretty decent so far. Dean Norris from Breaking Bad should make a good villain, and I found it hilarious that Stephen King kills off The Lawnmower Man by the end of the first episode. The only part that seemed weird was the councilman's son going from lovesick puppy to psycho in half an hour.

Small correction, he's actually Big Jim's (Dean Norris's) son.

I'm guessing the 1984 in your name is more likely a reference to your birth year and not the book, right?

You don't watch Big Brother....Big Brother watches YOU.

I didn't know the show still comes on.

If you're a regular viewer of that show I'm sure a lot of people seem smart to you.

The people that go on these reality shows and make complete idiots out of themselves must either be getting payed a pretty nice sum of money to intentionally do it or must be the biggest idiots in the world. Knowing that everything you do has the possibility of being aired to the public, and knowing that even the smallest negative thing you do will be edited to look like something major, you would think people would treat this like the biggest job interview of their lives and try to come off as intelligent and emotionally stable as possible.

Why does CBS have to damage control a tv show no one is watching?
 
2013-07-03 10:24:47 AM
I remember going to see Rice University play Tulane one year way back and the Tulane student section chanting "What comes out of a Chinaman's ass. Rice, Rice, Rice." Now it's "go eat a bowl of rice" Somewhere along the line racial slurs have gotten really lame.
 
2013-07-03 10:25:28 AM
i read the headline a little too quickly, and i thought it said the big bang theory cast was racist and homophobic.

/there's a "some of my best friends are night elves" joke in there somewhere, i just know it

Not as a race, but as a culture. The asian guy who works as a pharmacist who went to NYU and has been here since he was three? Yeah, hes awesome. His grandparents who he had shipped over because they would have been left to die back in some rice field? Them, not so much. They're barely human.

"fry rice" is also racist.
 
2013-07-03 10:35:29 AM
I didn't even know that show was still on the air.   Not news to anyone here, but they don't pick ordinary well adjusted people to be on that show.  I'm guessing this is just a desperate ploy for viewers.
