NEW YORK (AP) — The network that launched reality television with ``The Real World'' and ``Road Rules'' will look at this pop culture phenomenon in a new weekly half-hour comedy series, ``Kathy's So-Called Reality.''

Kathy Griffin and her ``Motley Crew,'' a rotating group of friends, relatives and co-workers, will show highlights of reality programming and then discuss them. Griffin will also regularly interview reality program celebrities.

``Ten years ago, we recognized that there was a whole new genre of programming and we launched two extremely successful reality shows, `Real World' and `Road Rules,''' said Brian Graden, MTV's president of programming, in a statement. ``With the reality craze now under way in full force, MTV feels like it's time to look at the shows out there and have a little fun dissecting the genre.''

The first show will air at 10 p.m. EST Sunday, MTV said this week.
