NOTE: The Ashley has updated this list since she originally posted it and has added new dates and taken off the dates of the shows that have already started!
There’s TV, there’s bad TV, and then there’s bad summer reality TV. It doesn’t get much worse than that.
The Ashley is happy to bring you the premiere dates of all of the awesomely bad reality TV shows you’ve come to love! In a future post, she will talk about some of the new ridiculous reality shows that are set to premiere this summer. However, it honestly just won’t feel like summer without having to recap Bachelor Pad. It’s seriously un-American for ABC to take that summer staple off the air!
Anyway, while other media outlets have released summer premiere date lists for non-reality TV shows (you know, the shows with actual redeeming value), The Ashley took the liberty of just weeding it down to the crappy reality shows we care about!
Let’s get those DVRs set and ready to go! (Obviously, these dates are for the U.S. only!)
