Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I've never been too into that singing one.. but the "* got talent" ones have some fun stuff sometimes.

People that watch them are also the kind of people that watch too much television. That tells you something. You'll never hear someone say, "I don't watch much tv, but I do love watching reality competition shows." Unless, of course, they're lying and ashamed of themselves.

OTOH, I'll admit that I DO watch too much TV, but I won't watch that stuff...

These shows are a complete waste of time. Therefore, I never even thought about watching them. I was always amused and puzzled by my co-workers when they would be gushing over some of the contestants. Bilge I say!

Everyone always says these shows suck (including me), but then how do they get a record number of viewers?!

Even though not a scientific poling I think it says something that at present (this posting)72.8% say "played out(23%)or Just as bad as they always were(49.8%). Tends to make me feel, they can now be listed as "toes up" and "tagged".

There was no "other" option...

I don't watch the shows but like to watch a very few on YouTube. The few I do watch, I tend to enjoy a lot and watch over and over.

America's Got Talent is entertaining. (But I never watch it. Ever.)

The Voice is best when I fast-forward past all the touchy-feely stuff and get to the core of the competition.

I love Project Runway, but hate it when team projects go bad because people are like... "I CAN'T POSSIBLY WORK WITH ANYBODY EVER BUT I WANT MONEY TO OWN MY OWN STUDIO". Srsly...

Maybe the only people watching are Neilson families.

I saw on my satellite box guide there was a show called "Top Hooker".

I immediately thought it was a competition show sort of like "Top Model", except where people competed to be the best prostitute.

It's actually about fishing, which was a let-down. I think it's a sign that there is too much reality tv in the world, that I would think there was a show about finding the world's best whores. I don't even watch reality/talent/tv shows and I know of them because of how saturated they are in the rest of our media.

0.8% of people taking this poll misread the answer in line 1 as "worst" when it actually says "best." How embarrassing for them.

Same.

But I wouldn't want to be on them.
