And We Know Flippers Live in World Full of Plunder Blunder

So, S-townWife and I are watching one of these flipper shows you see on HGTV or TLC when I openly wonder how much longer these shows are going to last given that I'm reading in different places that the housing market collapse has rendered house flippers an extinct species. She points out that the show producers are now consistently starting their broadcasts with intros like, "Watch as this flipper takes on more than he can handle or afford."

So, have these shows--for the sake of money--shifted from attracting potential flippers to a once popular trend to affirming non-flippers for staying away as the trend ends? In a declining housing market, catharsis would seem to be the most marketable product.
