Outsider's Inn may ostensibly be a reality show, but it feels more like a quirky sitcom as it requires the three city slickers to improvise their way through a variety of staged (and sometimes bizarre) situations. From checking in guests and their various barnyard animals to procuring liquor in a "dry" county, they manage to provide their guests with interesting -- if not problem-free -- experiences. And luckily, they can rely on one another to find humor in the process.

The show definitely has funny moments, but some come at the expense of the local residents. While none of it is intended to be mean-spirited, the show often the Newport, Tenn., residents as stereotypical Southern caricatures. There's also some strong sexual innuendo. Bottom line? It's not for young kids, but for older viewers looking for something silly and entertaining, Outsider's Inn just might fit the bill.
