More Bad Reality TV on the Way!

With summer kicking into full swing, we’ll all need a little dose of trashy television to help pass the time when it’s just too hot to do anything but sit in front of the air conditioner sipping Coronas and channel surfing. Fortunately, the networks have lined up a whole season’s worth of brand new reality shows that you will probably watch and love no matter how bad they are. New York mag’s Vulture blog has compiled a list of 20 such horrific programs slated in the coming months. Some highlights: NBC’s Baby Borrowers, in which teams of adolescent couples will have to care for newborn infants as a sort of "keep your zipper up" life lesson; Bravo’s Date My Ex, featuring Jo, formerly of the Real Housewives of Orange County, and her ex-boyfriend, Slade Smiley, helping her find her a new man; G4’s Hurl, in which competitive eaters gnosh all sorts of grossness and then try to keep it down as they get spun around on tilt-a-whirls and other vomit-inducing machines; and, last but not least, the show Vulture has deemed the No.1 worst reality show of the summer, The Singing Office on TLC, featuring vocal coaches Joey Fatone and Scary Spice (see clip above). Let the mind-numbing begin!
