03/30/2005: We no longer deserve to survive as a nation....
if we have shit like this polluting the airwaves:
VH1 has selected seven new has-beens to stop being polite and start trying to revive their careers on "The Surreal Life."What really scares me, though, is that there's an audience for this kind of crap.
The fifth season of the reality show, now in production, will premiere Sept. 4, the cable channel announced Tuesday.
In the show, a group of not A-list celebs are taped 24 hours a day while living and playing together in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills.
The new cast includes "America's Next Top Model" judge Janice Dickinson, former slugger Jose Canseco, Sandi "Pepa" Denton of Salt-N-Pepa, Bronson Pinchot from "Perfect Strangers," Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth from the first season of "The Apprentice," British model Caprice and motorcrosser Carey Hart.
UPDATE (3/31/05): I realize now that what I should have said is: "What really scares me, though, is that there has been an audience for four years' worth of this crap, and there's still enough audience to justify a fifth year."
