This week was filled with awful television. And since you can't waste your valuable DVR space on all of it, we're here to fill you in on what you missed.
On MTV's "The Real World", housemates got into a fight over a grilled cheese sandwich. Want the back story? No, of course you don't. It's worth pointing out, however, that resident Southern boy Cohutta is actually a good representation of the South. In this age of "My Name is Earl" and Larry the Cable Guy, it's hard to find a Southern television character who's not a terrible stereotype. Cohutta, to his credit, proves that there are still classy guys to be found south of the Mason-Dixon line. From MTV 10/10/07.
MTV debuted its new bisexual dating show this week, "A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila", in which 16 straight men and 16 lesbians compete for the chance to move into the MySpace star's mansion. The show featured MTV's trademark casual racism, like "I've never been with an Asian chick before, but I love Chinese food." Classy. But the highlight of the show wasn't scantily clad women or girl-on-girl make-out sessions, it was just a guy with a hilarious laugh. From MTV 10/9/07.
MTV proved it can keep up with last year's news when it debuted "Pageant Place" this week, a reality show following 2006 Miss USA Tara Connor. You may remember Conner as the beauty queen who was almost dethroned after allegations came out about her underage drinking and drug use. In this clip, Conner says she was accused of using cocaine by former Miss Teen USA Katie Blair after Blair thought Conner was moving in on her boyfriend. You're really regretting missing this show now, aren't you? From MTV 10/10/07.
And Vh1 summed up why the terrorists hate us in one show, "Little Beauties: Ultimate Kiddie Queen Showdown." I can't even begin to sum up this clip.
This week in television wasn't all terrible, as shown in the fifth clip. At least we got to see Jack McBrayer of "30 Rock" Double Dutch on "Ellen".
