Real World Needs to Get Real
I used to be a big "Real World" fan until a couple of years ago when it began going downhill big time.
For 12 years now, Real World has dominated the television sets of 20 & 30 somethings. The very first season took place in NYC and the cast was great - probably because they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. (The 3rd season in San Francisco was good too...) Now the show has turned to mush and it's about as fun to watch as an episode of the Jerry Springer show.
Gael Fashingbauer Cooper from MSNBC has written a good analysis as to why the show has lost its touch.
