NYT's intrepid TV reporter Bill

NYT's intrepid TV reporter Bill Carter briefs us on the forthcoming reality TV series that the networks have lined up for the summer: Roseanne a la Anna Nicole, and Paris Hilton (not her sister, too), a la Green Acres. One twenty-something viewer explains: "When a scripted show isn't smart, it's bad; but when a reality show isn't smart, for some reason, it's entertaining. For some reason, you get off on the vapidity, sluttiness, stupidity and awkwardness of these shows."

Even so, CBS still hasn't figured out that no one cares about Big Brother. Also funny, CBS apparently has a senior official who is the "CBS executive in charge of reality".
