The show's announcer confirmed that the families were keeping within social distancing guidelines on the show. The Malone family also took to Twitter to deny that they have broken any rules by appearing on the show, writing: "Just going to put this out there so we are all up to date, I know the social distancing rules too, I love my grandkids, I would never put them or anyone else’s health in danger. My daughter and her children live with us, so she can go to work as a nurse." … [Read more...] about TV stars breaking social distancing rules: Holly Willoughby, Alex Jones, Ruth Langsford and more

Carter (Mylo Williams), Joan Ryan (Miss Tina Paladrino)Last seen: Before Saved by the Bell even began.What “happened”: If you ever catch a rerun of Saved by the Bell one Saturday morning, you might stumble on a show that seems wildly different from the one you know.

And Ink is but the latest in a long line of shows that have followed in the footsteps of America’s Next Top Model, which popularized the smaller-scale cohabitation-talent-contest format in 2003. Then in 2004, Project Runway raised the bar of what contestants on a reality show might be expected to be able to do, and that became the new gold standard.

When planning our previous brackets, we spent hours arguing what year to make the cutoff for eligible shows, as both genres had been TV staples since its earliest days. However, reality TV is a relatively recent phenomenon: Yes, The Real World (and its itinerant sibling, Road Rules) has been around since the early ‘90s, but the true reality explosion didn’t occur until 2000, with the debut of Survivor and the one-shot Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire. The former, a summer smash that mixed The Real World with ruthless competition, mind-fucking, and low-blood-sugar crankiness, inspired an immediate network rush to come up with their own lock-people-inside-a-BLANK-and-watch-them-fight series. Fox’s instant marriage special Multi-Millionaire, on the other hand, sparked waves of pearl-clutching tsk-tsking about television’s devaluing of love and the show’s broad interpretation of “real” (multi-millionaire “prize” Rick Rockwell was … [Read more...] about The Reality Rumble: What’s the Greatest Reality-TV Season Ever?
