People talk about the quality of shows on TV, but thats capitalism at work.

Reality TV is unscripted so you dont need to pay writers, set designers, etc. Its super cheap to create and produce a reality show. Much much much cheaper than a standard sitcom or drama.

And, on top of that, they get decent ratings... While there might not be as many people watching Bayou Billionaires as CSI, I bet the ratings to cost ratio is just as good, if not better.

You wonder why I am for government funding of art? Its because reality TV is proof that capitalism is not perfect, and in the case of TV, is ruining it.

If every TV show ever done was as significant as MASH or whatever, then they'd all be meaningless.

Ruining TV?

Okie dokie.

The world is over. A reality TV show popped up. The human race has literally regressed back into the age of cavemen. Everything is always bad and wrong.

Blah blah blah blah.

Business owners make those decisions based on things like the taxes they have to pay, what their insurance premiums will be for their physical assets, and other things related to what their profit margin is. They are also smart enough to know their labor pool isn't limited to a handful of yokels on a TV show.

Nope. Chesapeake is one of our customers, though. I work for Enterprise Products, the people who built and operate the 42" pipeline and associated gathering system.

Gotcha. Chesapeake is one of the larger employers around the OKC and have their hand in gas plays all over the place.

Yes, I think you're right about the inexpensive cost of production leading to the proliferation of this sort of reality tv - most of which is pretty worthless apart from cheap/base entertainment.

But at the same time, some have said that we're in a new golden age of television due to the quality of the serial dramas that have exploded basically since the Sopranos. And not all of them are on premium tv. Great shows like Lost, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, etc.

Reality tv is cheap but there's still a lot of great tv being made right now. Arguably more than ever.

They are moving into the Marcellus/Utica shale plays in force. We just announced plans to build an ethane pipeline from Pennsylvania to Texas and Chesapeake leased 75% of the space already. Looks like we are going to expand it's capacity before we lay the first joint.

Obama will find a way to block it. We don't need those jobs we have plenty in the solar panel industry.

Anyone still watching this show?

I love these people. All in all, they're good people - and pretty entertaining. Albert is hilarious and I can listen to Valerie talk all day.
