No one has unscripted content needs.  No one.

/I didn't think I could find language more hated than out of the mouth of a marketer, but here we are.

With an average age of 67*, Farkers aren't exactly the target demo for MTV.  You old farks are supposed to hate it.

CBS has pledged to do something similar.  50% or more of the casts of future CBS reality shows will be POC.

Until any of the available gods are listed as head writer on these shows, I will not believe any of them are in fact reality shows.

Can we just go back to 1996 and force Disney to un-buy everything?   Not just MTV, but ESPN and everything else they ruined.
