Favorite hideous TV shows (MTV-centric)

    A couple times, discussion about the soft-core porn masquerading as a "reality" show, MTV's "Undressed," has been broached on Random Thoughts.

    While there are many out there, on other networks, I can think of more than a few on MTV that come to mind.
    "Laguna Beach"
    "The Grind" (c. 1992)
    "TRL" (c. 1997)
    "My Sweet Sixteen"

    Now, I never watched any of these shows regularly. "Grind" and "TRL" merely were after-school time-fillers. "Undressed" was entertaining post-work frivolity. "My Sweet Sixteen," I stumbled upon that once, and I couldn't stop laughing at the girl whining over a $30,000 budget for the shindig.

    As I compile this list, I notice that most of the shows here skew female. There's no particular reason for that, except that I think they're all hideous in their own ways.

    So are we talking about dirty pleasure TV shows? Or shows that are soft-core porn? I'm confused by your post.

    Ha. Well then I'm adding the Real World/Road Rules Challenge. God knows someone's always hooking up with someone, plenty of shots of guys and girls in various states of undress, and some shit-talking.

    Great great fun.

    Man, I loved Undressed. Fantastic show after coming home from the bars.

    I liked the earlier seasons of The Real World, before everyone was vying to fill a stereotype.

    I have been caught watching Super Sweet 16, just to laugh, and a marathon viewing of America's Next Top Model, just because there was no Law & Order on. Somehow those shows make me feel so much better about myself.

    I was just saying this last night to a friend, the two worst shows on tv have to be "Parental Control" and "Next." I just can't believe how bad MTV is now. I feel my IQ - and the IQ of school kids - falling every time I see it one and watch more than 5 minutes.

    I have to admit, I got hooked on the first two season of Laguna Beach. I'm very ashamed.

    I also watched Dawson's Creek from the first episode. :'(

    Parental Control and Next are my guilty-pleasure MTV shows...
