    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.
