  1. Grantland Reality Fantasy League: New Year, New Shows, Same Drunk...

    David Jacoby

    Welcome to Season 3 of the GRTFL! What does that mean? To be honest ... not much. However, we will be adding a couple new shows to the rotation and bringing back some old favorites. This week we will be adding MTV's latest in the "Let's Hope This ...

    David Jacoby

    Is Frank from The Challenge a heartless woman abuser? Will a Beverly Hills Housewife save her marriage with squat thrusts and lamb fetus injections? Are they eating Andrew Bynum boogers on Survivor? Am I the only person still watching Jersey Shore? J...

    David Jacoby

    Jersey Shore is like Yakov Smirnoff. Let me explain. In the late '90s, I made my living hustling tourists at the Empire State Building into going on the "New York Skyride." The Skyride was a simulation ride, a movie with moving seats that would "...

    I'm intimidated and a little nervous. When there is a The Challenge episode like the one on Wednesday night, I feel pressure to offer an appropriate GRTFL writeup. I mean, when you get the kind of violence, unbridled misogyny, and rampant lunacy this...

  5. Grantland Reality Fantasy League: Dionysian Deena Rides Again

    David Jacoby

    Imagine you woke up one morning and the sun didn't rise. Imagine looking in the mirror while brushing your teeth and seeing someone else's face. Now imagine it is 10 p.m. on a Wednesday and there is no Challenge on MTV. All of those things happened t...

  6. Grantland Reality Fantasy League: Fish Fights, Falling Stars

    David Jacoby

    We have an emergency. Something terrible has happened to the most legendary figure in The Challenge history. Alton has gone soft. Once, he was the most feared cast member ever. A man whose competitive fire was matched only by his freakish athleticism...

    David Jacoby

    The same way it's nice to come home at Thanksgiving and see that your old bedroom is the way you left it, it's nice to see the same old reliable insanity on reality television. So much has changed on Jersey Shore and The Challenge over the years, yet...

  8. Grantland Reality Fantasy League: Our First Sociopath!

    David Jacoby

    Do you know what a sociopath is? Like, for real know? Sociopath is one of those words that we hear all the time, use ourselves, even, but can't truly define. If someone walked up to you in the street and said, "What is a sociopath?" you would have tr...

    David Jacoby

    Jersey Shore has been trotted out one last time for everyone to have a good look at before it is mercifully put down by MTV. The flash-pan popularity and cultural significance of this program has long since been extinguished, and this final iteration...

    David Jacoby

    The transition from summer to fall is a drag. The days get shorter and cooler (the worst), students have to go back to school (sucks), and you realize that your next "vacation" is home for the holidays (a push). While actual, ya know, life downgrades...

    David Jacoby

    Reality TV is in trouble. The Situation is in rehab, America's alcoholism mascot Snooki is pregnant, and there are only two shows left on the air worthy of inclusion in the GRTFL. With this in mind, I've decided to change it up this week and take you...

    David Jacoby

    Courtney The Bill Belichick of Bachelorettes's reign as HBIC on The Bachelor has come to end. The way she captivated all that have been exposed to her particular brand of bitchy genius makes her exit feel much more like an intermission than the final...

    We don't score reunion shows here at the GRTFL. Why? No idea, it is just a dumb rule that's grandfathered in like the extra point in football or "Thou shalt not kill" in that God book. That said, I am not going to let an insignificant detail like "no...

  14. Reality Fantasy League Scorecard: Fantasy Suite Follies!

    Nothing happened on Jersey Shore this week. Nothing. I can honestly look you right in the eye and tell you that we've established a stupid scoring system that rewards reality TV cast members for drinking, fighting, and coitus-denying — yet the ...

    Dear Survivor, I've been thinking about it a lot and I have decided that we're going to have to see other shows. It's not me. It's you. You see, Survivor, in the GRTFL you're only as good as your last start - and you sucked last season. Really suc...
