Fatheads

"Fatheads" are all the rage in 2008 - what are Fatheads? Life-size vinyl posters of your favorite sports stars or celeb. The pictures are taken in Hi-definition giving the poster an almost 3-D appearance. - So.. every time you walk into a room with a Fathead - there is a slight chance you'll have a heart attack... (just kidding - I hope)

Reality TV

Reality TV is a phenomenon of the early 2000s that is still with us (more or less) as of this writing, in May of 2007. Reality TV puts everyday people in contrived but supposedly unscripted situations, and then films them for our voyeuristic amusement. Some of the top shows include:

  1. Survivor - (CBS) Reality TV show debuted in May of 2000.
  2. American Idol - An amateur hour type singing contest hosted by Ryan Seacrest that has been running since 2002. Contestants perform live on TV and are judged by a panel of judges (Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell) and the American public who cast their votes via telephone.
  3. The Bachelor - (ABC) Debut 2002. 25 young ladies vie for the affection of an eligible bachelor, who picks one to marry.

Other Hit Shows of the 2000s

  1. 24 - 24 is unique in that we follow the story minute by minute. Viewers are privy to an entire 24 hour period with no gaps. (Fox)
  2. Desperate Housewives - (ABC) - Welcome to The Most Scandalous Street in Suburbia!
  3. Heros -
  4. House - Smart is cool, and nasty is better. Hugh Laurey, a British Bloke dons an American accent, is mean to everybody, and we can't get enough! (Fox)
  5. Lost - (ABC) - A man awakes in a jungle. He is bruised and bloody, and doesn't know where he is...
  6. Ugly Betty  - The only sane an reasonable person is "Ugly" Betty (who really isn't ugly at all, IMO.)(ABC)
