Ellen campaigns for shorter reality TV shows

Tired of reality shows dragging on for two hours (or more)? So's Ellen DeGeneres.

The talk-show host recently took to her program to jokingly introduce a campaign asking networks to cut down on the lengthy shows so that viewers can get back to their lives:

As much as I love some reality programs (Hello, "Dancing"!), I think Ellen's got a point. Especially when certain shows pack their two hours -- and sometimes just 60 minutes -- with endless fillers. (I'm looking at you, "American Idol.")

What do you think? Are reality shows too long?
