Reality TV is everywhere on just about every cable channel. While some may be worthy of a look and do extremely well in the ratings (think "Big Brother, "The Voice") most have a limited-if any-appeal. A New York PBS station, WNET, has produced a series of reality show parodies that carry the following warning for the gullible viewer at the end of each. ""The fact you thought this was a real show says a lot about the state of TV." Take a look at a few.

 "The Tanners". Move over Kardashians.

"Clam Kings". A cross between "Duck Dynasty" and "Deadliest Catch".

"Long Island Landscapers". Who knew weed-wacking could be so intriguing.
