(TV By the Numbers)   Duck Dynasty beats all other "reality" shows...again, proving that camouflaged clothing and beards are much more interesting than pretty cake wars, racist hipsters locked in a house, and how to win it in a minute...whatever it is   (tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com) divider line 45

Beyond the wealth worship, which is what this is, the show combines guns, hot women, and idiotic infantilized men. Add to that a loving extended family, which most people can only dream of having after the emotional bloodbath that was the Boomer Generation's Narcissistic Letter to Themselves, and you have an American Aspirational Wet Dream.

Reality competition shows I can at least understand how people get invested in, even if they're not anything that interests me. Straight-up reality shows on the other hand, I will just never comprehend.

I'm most concerned about the numbers Full House is pulling.

I actually like and watch the show, so ... WRONG.

Miss Kay is everyone's sweet old grandmother.  she doesn't always say the right thing, but there doesn't seem to be a mean bone in her body.

There's nothing wrong with DD.  It's a sitcom, no more, no less.  Just because it's supposed to be a reality show doesn't change anything.  It's also funny as hell, although the further it goes, IMO the less funny and original they are.  Nothing wrong with that though, I'll take the first two seasons of it over most of the rest of the crap on TV today.

Bitter and absolutely correct.

You should shoot for a guest appearance as Uncle Si's bastard child Beauregard, whom he fathered with the saucy young thing down at the Waffle House right before he shipped out for 'Nam. They could bill it as "a  very special episode".

Which is the second-best kind of correct, behind "technically."

He is correct about the Boomers, though.

*if I had to see one more movie about a father that was busy with work, but was judged as bad for working to provide for his kids instead of going to the school play, i'd get mahself a shotgun, and shoot every boomer ah see

It's a fine show. I still like watching their older Outdoor Channel bits which were less scripted and just as funny. Compared to other shows on basic cable it's at least watchable.

The merch overload though is getting ridiculous.

It's not just beating reality, subby.  A 4.5 rating makes it the third-most watched show on television behind The Walking Dead and The Big Bang Theory.

Win it in a Minute is a game show.  Didn't realize that game shows are now being referred to as reality shows.

ristst: Win it in a Minute is a game show.  Didn't realize that game shows are now being referred to as reality shows.


But, aren't most reality shows game shows? What else is Survivor, Apprentice, Big Brother, Bachelor, Bachelorette, American Idol, et al?

there are two camps.  Reality Competition (Survivor, Apprentice, Big Brother, etc..) and then Reality (Honey Boo Boo, Jersey Shore, Real Housewives)

Some of the competition shows are actually watchable.  Very few from the other camp are any good.  For some reason, Mythbuster is in the "Reality" categry when it comes time for the Emmys

I guess being the least stinky pile of shiat is an accomplishment, of sorts.

Pay no attention to the  EyeballKid, bojon, he doesn't even own a TV.

I do, but unlike many of the functioning blobs here, my TV doesn't own me.

Bottled drinking water =/= local tap water. If it does, you're doing something wrong.

But Win it in a Minute is pretty much the standard game show from what I've seen....is there a season-long competition between the same group of users?  Or does each show have new contestants?  I haven't seen a lot of it...a couple segments, and it looked like your standard game show from what I saw.

Done in one, and pretty much why I came here. Leaving happily.
