I actually just made this show one of my PR connections also. I felt that it was a great show, but also agree with you about the effects it may have on the PR industry and the reputation that might come along with it. I think that the first episode did capture some of the hard work, stress, organization, and networking that you talked about above. They had to put on an event and were having trouble keeping the magazines reps there because they were all expecting Mel B. to appear. But one of the employee’s that work for Command PR stepped up and used her experience to keep them at the event in order for the event to get into the tabloids. She decided to give them water and lollipops because they could tell they were getting irritated and I felt that showed that PR practitioners needs to be prepared for any situation and to also be quick on their feet. I also agree that Kim Kardashian will do a great job with this show and hope that PR becomes even more popular than it is today with this show airing.
