It makes me feel old to hear the Real World, one of the first reality shows in existence, is in its 23rd season. It seems crazy that it has lasted this long, and even crazier that they found a new host city — Washington DC. The latest installment premieres tonight at 10 with eight new personalities ready to spar.
The nation's capital setting looks to provide some politically minded conflict and appears to integrate some cast members in charity work on the Hill. But as you see from the trailer, no high-brow issues will get in the way of hooking up and squaring off, though I will say that this season looks to be the least alcohol-fueled in years. Call it the bizarro version of MTV's other Real World-like ratings juggernaut, Jersey Shore.
