So these are 100% scripted now, right? Or at least the interview segments?
I don't watch reality TV because its too damn fake. Ironically this comes from a wrestling fan.

I once had a pair of severely obese roommates that used to love the hell out of this show, and they were really disappointed I didn't want to watch it with them.
Just watching this made me feel unclean.

That would be me, though I wish the art department had made him a better suit, but maybe having it that way is part of the fun. I'd slowly start to lose words and replace them with barks, and at the end play mount another Dog and other poochie things, and it would be me suggesting to the producer that I'd do these things.. :)
I've thought of different ways, being in a Dog costume in school, since they were the biggest to deny what I was, I wanted to show them what I could do, I could see myself sitting there as a Dog in class, doing school work and loving it. I need the Hot Tube Time Machine.
My assessment: I need to see more of this.. :)
Boomer was on the PoE Red forums, wasn't he?
I wish you'd get your own TV show, Boomer, I really do. They gave Honey Booboo, JWoww, and even Dog the Bounty Hunter their own shows, but you're far more interesting than any of those jokers.
And yes, OZ, he was. I still remember the day he showed up and started barking with everyone!

Boomer isn't offensive enough to be on his own reality show. He needs at least double the sass!
Maybe they could team him up with some asshole? Then Boomer could be the "good dog" and the other guy could be the "bad dog".
I haven't watched reality TV since, well, ever I guess. Closest I ever came to reality TV was stuff like Dirty Jobs and Top Gear. But surely Reality TV thrives on balance, right? You need heroes as well as villains, yes?
There's so much potential here. You could get Nick Bravo? VampiricSpektor? Dalhusky? Boxxy? JHMF? Maybe even ChrisChan? Stick one or more other internet people in a house with Boomer, and just let them be who they are. Focus less on all the catty drama and vanity that you see in "regular" reality TV, and more on their individual struggles - like Boomer finding acceptance as a trans-species individual, U producing his video game, JHMF living down the hall from Boxxy. Treat it with a bit of class and dignity, like they do on Pawnstars or Orange County Choppers, rather than just cheap cynical filler like Big Brother or the Real World - I mean, really, when you think about it, the only reason shows like Big Brother resort to sleaze and douchiness is because the cast they have to work with aren't interesting enough to carry their own show. Boomer is.
Plus then it could all tie back in to that argument the asshole judge made, about how Boomer the Dog would have to be a performance name before he'd grant the name change.
I really think it could work! At the very least, he deserves a miniseries from VICE.
Boomer The Dog
I'd try a show like that, I've been enjoying every one of the shows and news reports that have been done, they're fun, and I get to do something with my Doggishness that people enjoy.
I know something about U-Dog, but don't really know anything about the others, I've seen some of their videos posted here, but didn't get into them deep enough to know what they were about.
