Is "reality TV" dumbing down TV, or making it more interesting?
It depends on the show you are watching. As a reality junkie, I find that sometimes you need a good "no-brainer" hour of television. A good who-dunnit or slap-stick joke on primetime is not always guaranteed, but the opportunity to see a forty-year old behave like a fifteen year old sometimes makes for good television. However, that doesn't mean reality television should take over prime time. I think many of us still enjoy a well-written plot carried out by a talented cast of actors.
