This is one way to end the reality TV craze

ABC: Roof fell in on new reality TV series

HOLLYWOOD -- On paper, it sounded like an intriguing idea.

ABC's six-episode reality series "Welcome to the Neighborhood" features seven families vying to win a four-bedroom house in a development in Austin, Texas. Given that the neighbors are mostly conservative whites and the contestants come from diverse backgrounds -- including Asian-American, black and gay -- the series was meant, the network says, to highlight issues of cultural biases and tolerance.

"Neighborhood" was supposed to debut July 10, but that was before a civil-rights group warned ABC that the program might violate federal housing laws barring discrimination.

It's unfortunate that there aren't any "stupidity laws" that we can shut off all the other shows with.

Every C list celebrity will have to have their reality show before that will happen.

That's priceless! Some Americans are literally unaware of their own prejudices. That's flat-out arrogance!
