As 2012 draws to a close we can reflect on the good times. And by that I mean the good TV! 2012 brought a plethora of new reality shows; some good, some bad, some horribly addicting even if they suck, but we'll tak'em all.
Below is Reality Tea's list of the most addicting best new reality shows of the year.
A&E is doing the happy dance this week as its smash hit reality series, Duck Dynasty, became its most-watched show ever on Wednesday night. The Robertson family's season 2 Christmas-themed finale drew in a staggering 6.5 million viewers!
A&E's president says the reason viewers are connecting with Uncle Si, Phil, Willie, Jase and the rest of the Robertson clan is because “Duck Dynasty represents the best of A&E’s unique brand of storytelling, showcasing authentic and engaging characters.”
It's been said that in life only two things are certain–death and taxes. Well, dear readers, I'd like to think y'all would agree with me if I tweaked that saying just a bit. In the reality world, the only two things that are certain have to be Kris Jenner creating rumors about her family in order to stay relevant and Kim Kardashian talking when she should just smile, look plastic pretty, and wear heinous tiny rapper inspired outfits. Am I right or am I right? Of course death, taxes, and all that jazz come into play as well…although have we seen any Kardashian 1099s?
Where to start, where to start? Should I lead with Kim's unfortunate but likely well-intended Twitter posts or Kris speaking out about the gossip she planted about her marriage? It's quite the conundrum. Thank goodness I've got a glass of pinot noir and a Ducky Dynasty marathon to soothe my Kardashian-riddled nerves. Join me, won't you?
After seven seasons, A&E has pulled the plug on the popular reality series ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels’. Apparently the KISS Army couldn’t pull together to keep this show afloat.
The show gave an intimate look at the life of KISS rocker Gene Simmons, his now-wife Shannon Tweed, and their kids, Nick and Sophie. It started out strong and remained that way for several years, even pulling in over 3 million viewers for the season 6 finale, but according to Deadline Hollywood, it fizzled with season 7 this summer, dropping to just 1 million.
