Well, I can't speak to American Gladiator (is that even still on?), or Jerry Springer, but I do/did watch the Apprentice - in part because I enjoy yelling at my TV,and in part to see the interesting characters on the show. Oddly, the least interesting episode I watched was when the final contestant won... It just didn't matter...

$250K year after putting up with all that on the show... But the pay is only guaranteed for one year...
