So it's hard to say the show needs it without any factual basis for the claim.
Yeah, but the Reality Show format is becoming stale, don't you think. All reality shows have been doing basically the same thing for almost ten years. The format will crumble and go the way of all other fads soon.
The difference between TUF and other sports "Reality Shows" is that the other sports already had a stong following before the shows began airing.
TUF is INTRODUCING people to MMA with these drunken losers. I have to stress from my earlier post that YES, IT'S GOOD FOR THE SHORT TERM, but the sport has to be able to flourish without the douchery or it will fade away like a fad in THE LONG TERM with casuals.
A reality show without girlish drama is a reality show that is destined to be a failure that gets cancelled. Its common sense. Thats why the drunken drama is shown.
Your right, all those other sports did have a strong huge following. And thats something that this reality show will help MMA create. Its only going to introduce more people to the sport. That is good for the long term because long after the show is over the fans brought in who like the sport will stay fans.
