Thank you, and a few other brief thoughts at the end of the year

At this time of year, I find myself to be particularly full of gratitude:

  • for you, because you’re reading these words, and may have even answered an annoying survey to do so. I appreciate you and your support for independent media, never mind your comments on stories and on social media, and all your contributions.
  • for the lack of new episodes of shows on television, which gives me a chance to take a breath, catch up, and prepare for this onslaught.
  • for time with family and friends, which I’ll be spending more of this week thanks to that lighter TV schedule.

Yes, unless some major news breaks, reality blurred will resume publication in 2016. But first, to quote Julie Chen, expect two more stories when the bell tolls various times on Monday, to badly paraphrase A Christmas Carol.

Ahead this week

  • First thing Monday, the most-popular reality TV stories of the year. What did people click on the most?
  • Later that day, my list of the best reality television of 2015. What will make the cut?
  • A final newsletter of 2015, which, like all newsletters, includes new content you won’t find here, directing you to the best reality TV. If you haven’t yet subscribed, do so now!

I hope you enjoy all of that, and I wish a Happy New Year to you and yours.

I look forward to the reality TV that 2016 will bring to us, so we can continue to celebrate this awesome genre together.
