Make way for the return of Reality TV

So, if your regular favorites are out in two months, what's left to watch? Here's what networks have lined-up in case this strike goes on forever:

Duel (bluffing game show, patterned after a similar show in France)
Wanna Bet? (reality game show, patterned after a similar show in Germany)

Do You Trust Me? (reality game show)
Jingles (Mark Burnett Production)

The CW
Farmer Wants a Wife
Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants
America’s Next Top Model (new season)
Pussycat Dolls Present (new season)

American Idol
Nothing But The Truth (quiz show)
Lady or a Tramp (Donald Trump production)
Smile! You’re Under Arrest (comedy version of Cops)

Amnesia (quiz show)
The Interrogator (bluffing game show)
American Gladiators remake

The problem with RealityTV programming is that the format gets tired and old in due course. I don't think I want to watch a lot of these.
