Reality TV news: ‘Paradise Hotel’ ‘Big Brother 4’ and ‘Last Comic Standing’

The Curse of Toni: Fox’s “Paradise Hotel” reminds us that reality shows have led us to all-time lows in television broadcasting. Forget about marrying a trillionaire, this makes Springer look classy. The show includes the Reality Show “vet” Toni, who was the bug-eyed, psycho aboard Fox’s “Love Cruise” in 2001. Despite its poor ratings, FOX has extended the future of this train-wreck.

On the reality show topic “Last Comic Standing” has proved to be a must-see at my house. The show pits would-be comedians in a house against one another vying for a contract with NBC. The backstabbing and nastiness would make “Survivor” and “Big Brother” producers envious.

Last COmic Standing title cardThere is a head-to-head stand-up competition which is the weekly payoff that determines who is cast back into the real world. Good stuff, fun for a change. The Spinger-esque “Big Brother 4” introduced previous ex-lovers into the house with the competitors and has added a great distraction for the players and viewers. You are often more interested in the dirty laundry instead of the “game” – if it should even be called that.

BB4 is too bad, but has eliminated me from the pool of contestants for the fear of being trapped with an ex-wife.
