I've been thinking that one of the things I need to give up this year is "junk tv." You know what I mean. Real Housewives of Orange County. Celebrity Rehab. Big Brother. The Hills. Snoop Dog's Fatherhood. (I swear I don't watch some of those, I was just trying to get the gist across.) I think it would be good to cut some of the crap out. Find more fulfilling things to do with my time. Like try to learn how to knit. Learn Spanish.

But then, I realized that would include True Beauty, a new show by Ashton Kutcher.

True Beauty will feature six women and four men living together in a Los Angeles mansion under the impression that they are competing in a beauty pageant-like reality competition series in which they will be judged solely on their physical beauty.

However, unbeknownst to them, the contestants will also be getting judged on their "inner beauty" and will be put through scenarios that will make them reveal different aspects of their inner character.

The contestant who shows that they are the most beautiful contestant — on both the inside and out — will be crowned the winner and receive an undisclosed cash prize as well as a spot in People magazine's 2009 "100 Most Beautiful People" issue.

Dammit. I have to choose NOW to be puritanical.
