I would love for someone to explain to me why reality television is so popular.
The argument has been made, since the study of Greek theater, that mankind has a deep seated need for tragedy to be performed. One of the logical sides to this is the Catharsis, or relief of tension that one has by watching Tragedy or Drama. When a viewer watches reality television, at the end of the episode or series they are granted a catharsis as they see several dramatic ironies (Knowledge that the audience has about the situation that not all the characters do) come to fruition and witness the denouement. In this, they are relieved and get to relax about they're own condition in life.
