FOX (Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m. ET)


Though not much of it seems real, we’re calling this a reality show for want of a better label. FOX uses the term “unscripted comedy,” which would fit better if the series were funny. Paris Hilton, celebrity heiress and star of a little sex tape you may have heard about, and her friend Nicole Richie, daughter of singer Lionel Richie, temporarily give up their pampered La-La Land existence and try 30 days of farm life with the Leding family of tiny Altus, Ark. In the Dec. 2 premiere, Grandma invites the two guests to help pluck a chicken—eeeeww, gross!—before the clan sit down to eat it. Time to cue up the banjo music from Deliverance. No, wait—we already heard that when Paris tried to drive a battered pickup truck.
