It’s official! There’s a reality show for every Tom, Dick & Airline passenger

Just when I thought I saw it all after learning that the Weather Channel has a reality show (Lifeguards and soon Arctic Pilots), I flipped through channels this evening and discovered that Lifetime has a show about Southwest airline passengers at the Airline boarding gateReally? Is this necessary and compelling television? Have we run out of ideas already?

I watched a few minutes and could imagine  the brain cloud that thought of this concept: Someone was watching an 11 o’clock news report about passengers stranded at an airport after a terrible storm grounded some flights and said, “hey how about we create a reality show out of this?”
