Hopefully reality TV...hopefully sooner than later.

Reality TV is running out of ideas, they'll go first.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 2/10/07 - 7:14:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Reality TV will disappear first, I hope.

Hopefully, reality TV. Adult cartoons are the best thing on, and IMO, shouldn't even be considered a fad in the first place. A fad implies that it's popularity is fleeting, and adult cartoons are by no means a new pop cultural phenomenon.

A fad implies it's popularity will fade, it doesn't mean it is...

Both of these options have been around for years, but they are both reaching their peaks, these are 2 of the most popular TV genres lately.

I hope reality tv shows will go away soon. I still watch cartoons, so I'd like for them to stay.

Reality T.V., hopefully. They're all the same: Drama, whiners, money, etc.

While adult cartoons can change things up if needed.

I think that reality shows will mutate to the point that we wont call them that anymore, whereas adult cartoons remain pretty consistant.

TxFireman, who's to say their reaching their peaks at all? Just because something's more popular than ever doesn't mean it's going to plummet and it also doesn't that shark-jumpery of it is inevitable.

Nothing remains popular forever Triv. 90% of all Adult Cartoons are about an middle class family with a dad who is a little off. I'd say, about the 10th Simpsons-clone was when Adult cartoons jumped the shark.

Does anime count as adult cartoons?

Hopefully reality TV, as it is largely a worthless genre, while adult cartoons are awesome.

i want reality tv to fade away now.. i can tolerate adult cartoons better.. although some of the new ones like american dad are getting on my nerves.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 4/2/07 - 3:23:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope that reality tv would fade. I don't care about makeovers on people etc.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 7/7/07 - 3:13:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
If Adult Cartoons fade, I will have nothing to live for.

No because no one with a mental age of more than 6 watches those things.

Even tho cartoons will be more popular, I can't see them staying around for longer simply because reality shows are so much cheeper to make, which is all that matters in terms of what gets made. As long as there are people stupid enough to go on them for no pay then they will exist, which is one of the most depressing conclusions I've ever come to.

There is nothing wrong with adult cartoons. Judge the content, not the presentation.

Yes they are

Saying all adult cartoons are Simpson's clones is like saying all sitcoms are the same. Essentially true, but that doesn't mean people are going to stop watching new sitcoms.
And, due to their cheapness, I highly doubt reality shows are going to go away completely anytime soon.

I hope it'll be; reality TV... oh, that rhymed.

Pokemon and Naruto aren't the only animes out there.
I don't think either adult cartoons or reality shows will stop for a long time.

I doubt 'adult' cartoons will expire before reality tv. In fact I cant see either going anywhere anytime soon, the question is how far will they go before they are no longer a fascination.. I'll give reality tv 5 years before it starts to fade out.

depends

Reality TV is already on a decline. There are virtually no "reality" television shows anymore. Most are scripted to a point. "The Hills" is just one example.

Hopefully reality TV.
