Reality show(s) that I would watch

  1. Reality show(s) that I would watch:

    Who wants to marry a surgeon?

    premise: A whole bunch of women (and/or men) who know nothing real about the medical field, and think how GREAT it would be to have the status of a surgeon's spouse compete to gain the love and attention of an ungreatful, whining, and impatient surgeon.

    Spin-off show - Who wants to divorce a surgeon?



    liability statement: i am not married to, nor have i ever dated a surgeon (nor would i ever).. i mean no disrespect to anyone out there who is... we have all dealt w/ docs that are like this. this thread meant to be a light-hearted, toungue-in-cheek little thing....

    I love it!

    Nurses desk "the real behind the scenes!"

    Premise: see all the work that goes into just getting you a tylenol when it wasn't ordered, watch pharmacy delay your meds because of an I that wasn't dotted, be shocked and amazed at the fact that Docs spend even less time writing the orders and communicating at the RN desk than in even your room! And see the real commitment of these hard working folks who still go into patient rooms after their vents of frustration at patients!

    Listed as reality and sometimes comedy...but always ironic!

    I'd be fascinated to watch the reality show that delves into the lives of those pathetic people whose phone rings, they pick up and hear: "Please continue to hold for....."--and they actually WAIT TO TALK TO THE PERSON.

    They need counseling. After all, they're only feeding into the problem. I have to wonder:

    WHAT IF NO ONE HELD FOR A REPRESENTATIVE?

    That is hilarious - even my 5 y.o. hangs up on those kinds of calls.

    Competing to get behind the wheel of an 18-wheeled logging truck fully loaded with thousands of pounds of logs and finding out that a logging truck does not stop on a dime and those people who pull out in front of you and think nothing of it are actually stupid.

    Truckers. Lotsa possibilities there.


    I call that one "Logging Truck Chicken."



    Another version is to have a small car closely follow a badly loaded logging truck up a steep hill, called "Dodge Dat Log!" No, this driver cannot pull over, fall back, or pass. It's a genetic glitch of some kind.

    And my personal favorite: "Don't let that Lil Car Pass" in which a small car whips out around a logging truck going downhill on a double yellow line before a curve and realizes, belatedly, that in order to pass that truck, they have to be going 125 mph.
