To anyone who thought there’s nothing worse than warmed-over Reality TV retread programming, you’re right. David Lyle, head of the Fox Reality Channel, broke the news to staffers today that this 4-year-old unwatchable experiment will end operations on March 31st of next year even though it’s currently available in nearly 50 million homes as part of the Fox Cable Networks group. Ironically, the news comes a day after its awards bash was taped for an October 17th broadcast. Programming and production chief Bob Boden announced earlier this year he was leaving the channel to join Hasbro.
