George Clinton does reality TV?

I don’t know what to say. Except that I’m fed the fuck up with reality television, so I will not be watching the new season of “Gone Country” on CMT... even though George Clinton is part of the cast.

It’s a contest where non-country stars compete for the privilege of recording a country-music single. (Past contestants have included Bobby Brown, Jermaine Jackson, Sisqo and Irene Cara.)

In addition to George, the Season 3 cast includes Sheila E., Justin Guarini, Taylor Dayne and Micky Dolenz.

The new season starts tonight at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. Central Time). I’d rather be waterboarded.

Here’s the trailer:

Da hell? Never heard of it.

Is "reality" tv the Frankenstein's monster of television programming, or what?

Let's just hope that the song he performs is "Fuck George." You all know what the album cover would look like. Think CMT would go for it?

Just goes to show that they will make anything a reality show.

I was going to email you about this when I saw the commercial a couple days ago. God, I hate reality TV.

I don't know if it's a cliche or not, now....but so dam many Reality shows have so much staging behind them, that they belie the title. A better name would be "TV without Professional People and Ideas".... or "Wino Vision Made Flesh".

It's pretty apparent that during all of those joint passing and acid dropping times in the 60s and 70's.... somebody was taking notes of the conversations.

For anyone "Fed-Up", all I can say is that's what you get for owning a TV in the first damn place, so quit bitchin'.
I don't own one, so I peeped it on the internet and thoroughly enjoyed watching Dr. Funkenstein transform the mediocre medium into something BlissWorthy!

Now THAT wuz GloryhallaStoopid!
