Why are reality shows like Teen Mom and Jersey Shore so popular Compared to actual television shows
Because most people (and I say most because I myself do not watch a single reality show) like to see real people in drama. Same reason everyone slows down to watch a car crash, you just cannot help it.
I am not sure if they are more popular than scripted television.
Some shows like Dancing with the Stars and American Idol do amazingly well against scripted shows but I believe most reality television does not necessarily get more viewers. However, they are significantly cheaper to produce and do not require as large of an audience to be profitable.

If you had complete control over the media, which television shows would you cancel?It doesn't just have to be a scripted show but it could be a talk show or a reality television show.

What do you think of the reality show The Jersey Shore?

Has teen pregnancy become glamorized by television? Let me know what you think!Think of shows such as 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2, etc. Maybe it's just me, but I strongly believe that television shows such as these (reality- I might add!) are glamorizing teen pregnancy.

Honestly, does anyone think "The Situation" on Jersey Shore is attractive?I have a hard time believing that people think he is attractive, and can't see through his real intentions on the show. I guess I just don't surround myself with idiot girls who throw themselves drunk and naked on...
