Fox Reality’s Reality Remix Really Awards winners announced

Last week, the Fox Reality Channel took reality TV to its next logical step and held an awards show named after their nightly recap series. The Reality Remix Really Awards, besides having a lot of Rs in the title, was held at Mike “Boogie” Malin’s restaurant Les Deux, and featured a lot of reality celebrities getting trashed, which is pretty much their normal state. (TVgasm has behind-the-scenes photos from the event).

Those that get Fox Reality may have seen the award ceremony last Friday night or repeated this week. The rest of us get to read the press release. Only the last category, most memorable performer, was voted by viewers via the network’s web site, and it’s unclear how the rest were selected.

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.
