It’s the silent epidemic. But Ellen DeGeneres is finally lending her star power to put an end to it.

Reality shows, watch out. You know who you are. You’re the ones who think so much of yourself that you clock in at 120 minutes.

“I’m talking to you, ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ ” she says in her mock public service announcement. “You’ve assembled the craziest cast ever, but what’s crazier than that is making me spend two hours of my Sunday watching your show ….”

The Biggest Loser” and “Survivor” are also called out in her crusade against two-hour reality shows.

But why stop there? We’d like for Ms. Degeneres to consider adding those three-part Bravo reunion specials to her campaign against the unnecessarily overinflated programming.


Show Trackers, do you join Ellen in this campaign? Or do you like the supersized versions of your favorite reality shows?
