My problem with the show, besides the obvious staging of it, is the bad acting.

I don't really give actors much respect for their craft. But when you watch the owners try to "Act" in this reality show it makes me cringe. They make Rocco Dispirito look like a Master Thespian.

It is painfully obvious that so much of this is contrived, and it is annoying. I think there could actually be an interesting show there... but probably just cable-tastic and not network primetime ratings draw.

When you watch reality shows that follow people around and who aren't pandering to the camera, The Osbournes are fairly good at this, as are some other shows, you can still have some entertaining times.

I just think the production team has no stomach for the risk involved in waiting for the story to come to them so they just manufacture it.

I will probably keep my season pass a bit longer, but it is fairly hard to watch at this point.
