All Reality. All the Time

With the first official day of summer behind us, we have much to look forward to. Whether it's lounging in the sun, taking a dip in the pool or inviting your inner circle over for some barbeque grub, summer has something for everyone. While I would gladly trade in Canada's frigid winters for some sweltering days, there is one element missing from the season: television.

My name is Alanna and I'm addicted to television. That's right, I said it. For three seasons of the year, I can depend on my favorite programs to carry me away into a fantasy world. This season alone we discovered that LOST was in limbo, 24's Jack can never die and Ugly Betty isn't so homely after all. I'm still waiting to see if Gossip Girl's Chuck Bass survives his gunshot wound (yes), the fate of Brothers & Sisters Robert McAllister (dead) and the aftermath of the Grey's Anatomy shootout (love, marriage, baby). My bat mitzvah theme was television for a reason!

Frankly, though, summer television bores me. Aside from the addition of Pretty Little Liars, my stations have resorted to reruns, sports and the news. I've been left to watch my Beverly Hills 90210 DVDS over and over again. How exciting can life get? Thankfully, Canwest heard my call for help and responded with a brand new station ready to fill the summer void of television addicts like myself.
Launching July 1, the Global Reality Channel is Canada's first and only destination for hit reality programming 24/7. It's an addict's dream! As part of the Rogers VIP package, subscribers will have full access to new seasons of Big Brother and Apprentice UK. You can also relive your favorite moments on classics like: Survivor, The Apprentice, Project Runway Canada, X-Weighted, Fear Factor, Extreme Makeover Home Edition and Deal or No Deal Canada.

I'll admit that lately I haven't been the most avid reality viewer. The Hills, The City and Keeping Up with the Kardashians can all be listed as guilty pleasures, but generally I'm more into dramas and comedies. In my high school days, I lived off Survivor and Fear Factor, which makes this channel even more special. What's better than being able to relive the glory days through your favorite shows?

With Canada Day weekend only one week away, start preparing your eyes for Richard Hatch's nude Survivor appearance. The Global Reality Channel launch will kick-start its way into your viewing schedule with a complete series marathon of Survivor all day on July 1, beginning at 6 a.m.

What are you waiting for, A-Listers? Put your feet up after a long day at the office and relax to all reality, all the time. You know where to find me this summer...
