parody The Real World Movie: The Lost Season debuts tonight.
The Real World: The Lost Season, a parody movie chronicling the fictional (yes, it’s not real) Vancouver season of The Real World, debuts tonight at 9 p.m. ET on MTV. The cast of the Vancouver season is composed of actors, but also features seven real-life former The Real World cast members (“including Seattle’s David, Chicago’s Aneesa, San Francisco’s Rachel, and Hawaii’s Amaya,” according to EW’s review). Here’s the plot summary (stop reading if you don’t want to know): The Vancouver cast is supposed to face-off in a competition against the alum, but instead get kidnapped by the producer who threatens to kill them, according to the NY Post’s review. The movie repeats tomorrow at 10 a.m., Thursday at 3 p.m., Saturday and noon and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m.; the first showing will be commercial-free.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
