I caught "The Good Life" on TBS after watching something on TBS last night. This is probably the worst reality show on television, period. Unless you enjoy watching fat, sweaty black men pretend to be cool, that is, in that case this is your kind of TV show! "The Good Life" is a reality show about ceelo who is famous for singing that one annoying song on the radio about his girlfriend dumping him or something. He also hosted "The Voice", a show where he pretended to have some kind of musical talent and assisted contestants in becoming overrated pop star singers like himself. Ceelo quit his job at "The Voice" because he was too fat and lazy to do any actual work. So he politely asked someone at TBS if he could do a reality show so he could be fat and lazy somewhere else. Hence, "The Good Life" was born!
"The Good Life" follows the ceelo around in his daily life. In the series, a camera crew follows around ceelo and his homies as they pretend to have a life cooler than yours while delivery cheesy, scripted dialog in an effort to fool teenager viewers into thinking this is quality, unscripted television. In the episode I watched, Ceelo decided to take pole dancing lessons (yes, I am not joking) just so he could pretend to exercise and make sexual innuendos towards the instructors. Meanwhile his homies tried to swindle fans by selling them cheap, spray painted merchandise at one of his concerts.
Watching "The Good Life" makes "The Jersey Shore" look like quality, thought provoking television. This show is so horrendously bad that a middle schooler with a web cam could probably make something better than this. In the end none of this matters, because it's only a matter of time before Ceelo dies of obesity or he gets too lazy for this job like the last one. Well we could also hope he gets imprisoned soon for his recent drug and rape charges...
0/10 if I could, worst show on television I have ever watched, period. If you see this on television, quickly change the channel before you kill too many brain cells.
