Dose of reality:

This week found “Jersey Shore’s” replacement, a strange new singing competition, and stars putting themselves in danger all in the name of staying relevant. There’s always something for everyone in the world of reality TV.

ABC medical reality show:

The alphabet network is developing a Daytime reality show surrounding an L.A. hospital. Cameras are reportedly currently following doctors and nurses in and out of the UCLA Medical Center. It’s in the pilot stages with the intention of going to syndication or cable.

America’s Got Talent:

Howard Stern recently confirmed on his SiriusXM radio show that he would be returning to the NBC reality TV show as a judge. The same can’t be said for his cohort Sharon Osbourne, who has declared she won’t be back. Meanwhile, Howie Mandel is still reportedly undecided.

Big Brother:
On January 19, season 10 “Big Brother” winner Dan Gheesling will be at the Algoma’s Water Tower Inn in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, Canada. His first Canadian event, Gheesling will participate in a Q&A and meet and greet with fans. Go to Ticket Bud for more information.

Now that “Jersey Shore” is coming to an end, MTV needs a new group of people engaging in wild antics to follow around. Heading further south than Jersey, “Buckwild” will fill that void by focusing on young adults from Sissonville, W.V. Though this group will engage in more outdoor activities than the GTLers, and not be as attached to their cellphones and computers, MTV still promises lots of drunken nights and relationship drama. The new series will premiere January 3.

Dancing With The Stars:
Co-host Brooke Burke Charvet underwent surgery for thyroid cancer this past week and according to Twitter all went well.

The Girls Next Door:

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris broke off their engagement last year, but those crazy kids are back together. The 86-year-old and his 26-year-old fiancée plan to marry on New Year’s Eve at the Playboy mansion. Place your bets now on how long their union will last.
