| not for everyone but if you get the joke, it is fun to watch
This show takes a while to first understand and then appreciate. If you are in need of instant gratification, move along and keep your BS comments about this being garbage to yourself. Tru-TV is the land of TV refuse and this show is at least fun and the most real of any of them. I enjoy seeing the antics of Billy Eichner - who is by no means gentle with anyone he meets doing the show (I don't think this is an act-- he seems to actually get PO'd at people and will eviscerate them). The celebrity guest appearances are sort of random but mostly of actors/comedians he's worked with on Parks and Recreation, his recent project "Difficult People" on Hulu, or from SNL, with the occasional celebs who just happen to live in NYC. Best part of those appearances though is that they are clearly NOT SCRIPTED. I find that refreshing as for once we get to see them actually have to think and speak their mind. Best of all are the menagerie of people he interacts with who are just "normal" (tic) average NYC people anyone could run into. Yes-- he can be a little over the top on some of his opinions, reactions, yelling, scaring people as he surprise approaches them. But part of the fun is you never know what little comment is about to set him off.

If that isn't fun for you-- don't watch it and don't sit there demanding that THIS SHOW is somehow the worst thing on TV and needs to be pulled. That is insanity. There are so many other TV shows that are 100% pure hot garbage that ARE SCRIPTED REALITY. Why pick on a show that is for the most part fluid, unique, and interesting?
