Alessandra Stanley, writing in the NY Times, is clearly confused by reality television. Writing about FOX’s new reality show, On the Lot, she lumps Fear Factor (debut in US 2001) and Real World (1992) together, as examples of early days of the genre. No matter, her mistakes are legendary. Anyway, she’s not sure that On The Lot is very compelling. Even though she’s an idiot, she’s right. Tom Shales said so, too.

Better is CBS’s online, scripted Clark and Michael,about two friends trying to develop a TV show. The series, which will premiere new episodes every Wednesday, features Clark Duke and Michael Cera.
