No offense to our British, Sweedish and other friends not in the USA but, American TV
copycats shows especially British and Sweedish. Of course we water it down and overhype it. I never liked the Office. And a lot of the (Un) Reality crap started life in Europe or Asia. Today, everything is run by bean counters and lawyers and elites in LA
and NYC. They feel what's good for them is good for the nation and that extends to TV
Survivor is over the top and takes itself way too seriously. Something tells me that one of these type shows will have a contestant croak. Now before you all have kittens, I wouldn't put it passed the networks to fake this and create some water cooler buzz.
