6. Oh! Me! Me!
The only reality show I've ever watched was the granddaddy of them all--The Real World. And I only watched the first few seasons, then I got too old to tolerate the participants' crap. Now, although it severely limits my TV watching options (not that that's a bad thing), I choose not to tune in to any reality show, whether it's celebutards doing something stupid or "regular" people hoping to get their 15 minutes of fame, or even something altruistic like Extreme Makeover. Can't bear any of it.

Unfortunately the trend seems to be in favor of MORE reality shows (and game shows) as the economy continues to tank. The networks are crying poverty and canceling all the good dramas, dramedies, and comedies like Pushing Daisies, claiming they're too expensive to produce. So instead we get more low-budget reality crap. :(
