What is reality tv. It is phony tv. The only true tv is literally "True T.V" formally Court T.V. lol
I have been hoping for many years now that "reality tv" would disappear. Do viewers not realize that the vast majority of these "reality" shows are NOT reality but are instead scripted or predetermined??? Great question Gypsy but I fear we are probably in the minority!
Reality shows have become a reason for me to turn the TV off. Can't stand em', won't watch em'.
If someone wants excitement they can come film me dealing with my grand kids. Trying to change a poopy diaper while another is screaming cause the dog pee'd in the car seat, another one running in and out the door, while the phone is ringing... Yeah, now that's entertainment!!
I am, too, but I find myself guilty of being addicted to one in particular, that is WWE. I know that it is probably fixed most of the time, and most of the moves don't hurt, but I just love to watch the moves, gives me an adrenaline rush. And maybe, just maybe, those moves do hurt, because if their attack is strong, so can be their defense. So, the answer, people can never get tired of them. But suppose if they are not shown anymore, and something else, which seems interesting enough is shown in place of them, then they won't complain about them not being shown anymore. People, myself included, watch what is shown to them, because families aren't families anymore without the TV kept on while sitting with each other, although I find everything utter rubbish except wrestling, Discovery, National Geographic, and The History Channel.
Me too. The problem is: they're so cost-effective. You don't need writers, actors, or even a plot in some cases.
Corporations don't make good TV. They give us fast-food-style art.
Thanks for the great question,
Thanks everyone for your great answers. Unfortunately it looks like reality tv will be here for a long while.
The Amazing Race is awesome. I'd love to go on that show. Everything else is rubbish.

Why do people on reality shows seem stupid?Is it me or these people just go on and stand there with a derp look on there face. Why can't they seem to find intelligent people. Are there even intelligent people anywhere on tv.

Why are there so many reality shows on t.v. these days?Other than the news, I thought we originally started watching television to get away from reality?!?!

Do you think reality shows are on the way out?So many reality shows were popular for so long, but it seems that some of them, such as American Idol, are losing ratings. Some remain strong, such as Survivor and the Bachelor/Bachelorette. The new ideas seem lame, such as the new one about celebrities...

How do you feel about reality shows?Since reality shows seem to dominate the airways, would you rather go back to the typical drama/comedy/news show that used to be in fashion? OR, do you love reality shows? If so, which one(s)?
