Kathy's So-Called Reality is a television clip show that aired in 2001, hosted by comedian and former Suddenly Susan star Kathy Griffin.[1][2]

The show was "part monologue, part round-table",[3] featuring Griffin discussing clips from a variety of reality television shows the week prior with a panel of family and friends.[2] According to Griffin, the reality shows, even the "scandal-plagued" Temptation Island, "amazingly" contributed clips to be mocked.[1] The show premiered on February 4, 2001 on MTV, and ended on April 1, 2001 after airing only six episodes; the network did not renew the show due to low ratings.[4] USA Today columnist Whitney Matheson wrote that the show "seemed to be struggling for content," and "all the good jokes are taken by the time Kathy's weekly rant sees airtime."[3]
