Go to the mattresses

The next time you watch a show on MTV (...  pause while you pretend you don't watch MTV ...) take note of how many characters (I know they're technically "people," but I prefer characters) spend an inordinate amount of time in bed.

Then, once you've noticed this phenomenon, I want you to look closer.

Does the mattress that the character is wallowing on have a fitted sheet?

I am convinced that for some reason, MTV is opposed to fitted sheets.  Whether it's The Real World, Teen Mom or Jersey Shore, I see characters on MTV ALL THE TIME just lying about on a bare mattress.  I once saw a baby bouncing on a bare mattress near a window.  (Yup, it was Amber's primo parenting making that moment possible.) 

I know that the point of reality TV is to make a program with as little money as possible, but really. 

It's a fitted sheet, folks.  It's not an optional houseware, like a Kitchenaid mixer or an ottoman.  (For some reason the kids on Jersey Shore seem to have plenty of ottomans, but I can't count the number of times I've seen someone "laying"* on a bare mattress.) 

You want your MTV?  I want to know that something can be LAUNDERED after The Situation has brought a fair maiden back to community hook up room.



* I know that they're not always just "laying" on the mattress, but this is a child-friendly blog, folks.

    Also, re: Jersey Shore: WTF is up with having a community hook-up room, anyway?
