Whether it’s watching Simon Cowell beat failed singers down with his venomous tongue, scoffing over despairing parents who can’t control their unruly ‘youts, or watching clueless grooms-to-be plan their behind-closed-doors weddings for bridezillas, we can’t get enough of real-life drama and all-round silliness.
