Sitcom. There are a couple that look promising so I hope they pull it off.

What little tv I get a chance to watch, I will more than likely opt for the reality show.

There just hasnt been any good entertaining situation comedies lately. Family Guy is still great and South Park pretty much guarantees laughs but the others are just blah. Just look at the nominees for last years Emmys for Situation Comedies:

30 Rock
Entourage
Family Guy
Flight Of The Choncords
How I Met Your Mother
The Office
Weeds

The one's in bold are by far the best, most entertaining and cleverly written. The others blah.

At least the Reality shows are usually always entertaining (unlike comedies). American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With The Stars, Hell's Kitchen, Project Runway etc. are all great shows and more fun to watch than many of the boring shows like Weeds, How I met your Mother, etc.

I'm looking forward to Jay Leno's new show.

The only reality shows I watch are Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, and Deadliest Catch.

(I'd say Whale Wars, but those Sea Shepherds are so incompetent, they make the show a sitcom!)

As much as I want to say sitcom, I'll be realistic and say reality show. They are so addictive.

How about a sit-com based on a reality show. Could not be any worse than what we currently get.

Reality shows need to die already. We need some good sitcoms again.
